Last night I moderated an event hosted by GBG with the great title: “Future of UK for FinTechs: Is the branch dead?”

We unpacked the question by looking at issues such as:

– Is the bank branch dead?

– What is the role for bank branches?

– Will the pendulum swing back to traditional face-to-face contact?

Grateful thanks for everyone who participated in the event so positively – if you missed the event you can catch the key points via the Twitter hashtag #GBGMeetup

In preparing for the event I found an article by Angela DeFinis to be really helpful. The article is called “Moderate with Moderation” and outlines 10 helpful steps to running a successful panel discussion.
