Google’s Head of Strategy and the Director of Bacs head to Leeds to discuss the impact of the changing payments landscape

Leeds based Digital Transformation company Answer Digital are hosting a breakfast event on the 6th of February, with an impressive line-up of speakers, discussing how initiatives such as Real time payments, Blockchain, Mobile technology and Open Banking impact different sectors. The panel of payments professionals will be asked whether organisations are equipped to take advantage of the commercial gains that can be realised through new payments initiatives driven by technology.

The panel includes Mounir Mouawad – Head of Strategy at Google Pay, Anne Pieckielon – Director of Product and Strategy at Bacs and Ian Rutland – Chief Operating Officer at Optomany.

Discussions will be led by Imran Ali, Payments Managing Principal at Answer Digital, who will be sharing his findings from a new White Paper, The Impact of the Changing Payments Landscape on Multiple Sectors.  The white paper includes data from over 200 professionals on payments initiatives, combined with qualitative research with payments leaders from The Post Office, HelloFresh, Google Pay and others, to give a true reflection of how different sectors are approaching the shifting payments landscape.

This breakfast event will discuss the impact of these changes across multiple sectors, from manufacturing, to finance, technology, retail and the public sector.

The breakfast event is to be held at Platform, Leeds’ newest tech incubator space, adjacent to Leeds train station.

Imran Ali from Answer Digital said “we’re looking forward to hearing views outside of the London bubble. Our London event sparked some fairly lively debate, as contributors to the discussed the difficulties of balancing opportunities created by new technology with regulatory restrictions and the appetite of organisations to invest in new and innovative ideas.”
