admin / 21st March 2018
FinTech North is partnering with CBI for all three of its 2018 conferences across the Northern Powerhouse.
FinTech North is proud to announce that we are partnering with the Confederation of British Industry, (CBI,) for our forthcoming Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool conferences. Our collaboration will involve the CBI joining the speaker line up at each event as well as co-hosting the pre-event VIP dinners.
Ross Mumford, Assistant Director of Financial Services at CBI, will be joining the ‘FinTech in the Northern Powerhouse’ panel during which he and other speakers including the Northern Powerhouse Partnership and Innovate Finance will have a discussion chaired by the Treasury’s FinTech Envoy, Dr. Chris Sier.
“The CBI recognises the importance of FinTech to the UK economy and the increasingly prominent role it is playing in the regions. I’m delighted to be joining the panel at FinTech North and look forward to the events in Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool over the coming months.”
Ross Mumford, Assistant Director, Financial Services, CBI
“We are proud to be working with the CBI, who are without question one of the most prominent names in the UK business world, and it’s fantastic they are so enthusiastic to support the regional FinTech economy. The expansion of FinTech North reflects the growth of the FinTech industry outside of London, particularly in the Northern Powerhouse’”
Julian Wells, Director of FinTech North & Whitecap Consulting
This will be the second year that CBI is involved with FinTech North. Flora Hamilton, Head of Financial Services, participated in a panel at the Leeds event last year.
