[Dave Birch] We are pleased to announce that the 6th BarCampBankLondon “Unconference” will be taking place on Monday 11th February 2013 at the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA) at 1 Plough Place, London, EC41 1DE, with support from Consult Hyperion. (Please note that this is the day before Finovate London 2013.)
The aim of BarCampBank is to foster cross-sector communication and innovation around new business models in the world of banking and finance. It is organised on a participant-driven agenda around the future for financial services in the now-traditional unconference format. Some of the topics that we expect to see raised at this event include new technologies in the money world, the link between social and financial inclusion, financial services for the elderly and new thinking around alternative currencies.
There will be attendees from commercial organisations, not-for-profits, social enterprise and the third sector there. There are folk from iZettle, Cashflows, Ukash, Intelligent Venue Solutions and other interesting ventures already signed up, so why not come and join them? If you have never been to unconference before, but have even the slightest interest in the future of money, banking or financial services in general then now is the time to take the plunge and join the conversation in a relaxed atmosphere where everyone learns from everyone else. Here are a few of the comments from attendees about the 5th BarCampBank last year:
“Really interesting, thought-provoking day. Will definitely attend future events.”
“Great opportunity to meet some really talented innovators. Well-led discussions about a variety of topics; I’d love to attend the next one!”
“Stimulating in parts, illuminating in many areas, very pleasant atmosphere – above all quite encouraging. Having arrived with no particular expectations, I sat back to watch things unfold and was pleasantly surprised.”
“Excellent discussion. I felt the organiser brought more structure to the sessions than other unconferences I have been to.”
“Excellent opportunity to discuss some key topics in identity, payments & banking.”
There will be a £10 charge for this event (payable via Paypal on registration or by card or Paypal on the day), which will go directly to one of the charities supported by Consult Hyperion. Please book your place early as numbers are strictly limited to 80: as some of you will remember we ended up with rather a long waiting list last year!
