Here are some of Henri's most popular keynotes. Each keynote can and will be tailored for your specific audience and goals. These can be delivered in either keynote, panel or workshop formats.

 

Henri has numerous other keynote topics that he can deliver so please reach out to discuss the specifics of your needs. 

1. The Future of Finance: the Impact of Fintech, Crypto, and AI on the future of financial services

 

In this high-energy keynote, Henri covers the latest mega trends that are taking place in the fintech, crypto, and AI ecosystems with practical examples and energizing videos. The talk provides the audience with an insightful update on the latest developments they need to know, with a global perspective.

The keynote covers the latest global fintech trends, from explaining why China (and not Silicon Valley) is the global fintech leader to why traditional banks may become commoditized utility providers if they do not radically transform themselves – for instance, changing their culture or promoting staff differently. This keynote also uncovers the latest global crypto trends, from Facebook’s Libra to central bank digital currencies and the impact they may have on the future of finance. The presentation also discusses the latest AI developments and highlights why bankers of the future are likely to be designers and creative thinkers (not MBAs!) and the impact on traditional banking jobs.

The presentation builds into a crescendo by showing that whilst each development on its own – fintech, crypto, and AI – will have a big impact, their combined effect is what will exponentially impact the future of finance, especially as we move to an era where finance is based on the Internet of things, is decentralized and powered by blockchain, and allows customers to monetize their data.

This keynote is ideal when the goal is to energize the audience and share with them the latest developments they need to know in these fast-moving areas so they can reach their own conclusions on the future of finance.

3. The Future of Money: the impact of Central Bank Digital Currencies, Libra and Cryptocurrencies on Finance and Society

 

In this high-energy and passionate keynote, Henri starts with the history of money and how we all came to adopt assets like the U.S. Dollar and Gold. He then shares the history of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies and why such assets are here to stay and why the announcement of Libra is one of the biggest developments in recent financial history. Henri brings the audience along a journey of understanding what are central bank digital currencies and why central banks issuing their own digital currency could be a game changer with major consequences on traditional financial institutions.

Using his background as a lawyer and banker, Henri demystifies some of the practical elements around central bank digital currencies surprising the audience. For example, such assets could give us for the first time a real chance of eliminating corruption or money laundering. But also why such assets could make traditional banks completely irrelevant.

This keynote will awaken the audience by making them understand the impact that cryptocurrencies and central bank digital currencies could have not only on banks but on the broader financial industry.  As this is a new topic for many audiences, it can be particularly eye-opening and insightful.
