Looking for an update on today’s challenges in financial services? With FinTech Futures we share new, independent and impactful views on technology, regulation & user experience. Experience future scenarios first hand, get a grip on today’s buzzwords, participate in our fintech network, free of charge!

Today’s topic: Banking as a service (BaaS) implicates radical customer centricity. CX experts typically focus on the experience of a customer across all touch-points of a brand, both online and offline, providing a consistent service in an omnichannel area. Our guest speakers approach this topic from a no-nonsense angle, indicating how an organizational shift can help to avoid empathy gaps between front and back office.

And what about you, are you truly involved in making your customer’s life easier?

Gys Xavier

Jeroen Ghysel, CIO AXA Bank Belgium and member of the Management Board of AXA Bank Europe

No squads or tribes at AXA Bank Belgium, awarded best Belgian bank of 2016, but a simple collaborative model where marketing and IT teams merge. CIO Jeroen Ghysel and Chief Marketing Xavier Gys agree that CX is a people’s business and a matter of matching personalities within the organisation. In this duo talk, they show how their teams contribute to AXA Bank’s digital story.
