Learn from Annet Aris, Senior Affiliate Professor of Strategy & Member of the Supervisory Board at Rabobank; Bidyut Dumra, Executive Director, Head of Innovation, DBS Bank and Robin Speculand, Global Pioneer & Specialist in Strategy & Digital Implementation how a brick and mortar bank can turn into a tech titan by bringing digital to the core, focusing on consumers and nurturing a 30,000 people startup culture. The webinar is moderated by Dr Vinika D. Rao, Executive Director of the INSEAD Emerging Markets Institute, Gender Initiative & Africa Initiative, and Asia Director of the Hoffmann Global Institute for Business & Society.
