Discussing ‘Champions of Change’ at Money20/20
Aydan Al-Saad explained the importance of discussing and speaking on important topics at events including Money20/20 Europe. Al-Saad said: “Money20/20 Europe enables us to reach a broader, more impactful audience. Advocating topics like financial transparency and the gender wage gap provides insights to companies to make educated compensation decisions and is something I truly believe the audience will actively take part in.
“Ravio is disrupting the compensation space by giving businesses the ability to make fair compensation decisions by accessing real-time data. I couldn’t be more excited to lead this important dialogue on the powerful stage that Money20/20 offers”.
Gerrit Sindermann, deputy executive director at GDFA, explained . “At GDFA, our mission is to drive financial innovation for climate, nature, and biodiversity challenges across the global ecosystem. Money20/20 Europe is a great platform for helping us shape the green digital finance landscape globally.
“I feel honoured to not only moderate sessions with some of the leaders in this space but also collaborate on the program content development. I look forward to inspiring conversations – on and off stage – and hope to spark enthusiasm for green digital finance among the conference audience”.
Joanne Dewar also discussed the event and the importance of topics including open banking and AI. Dewar said: “I am honoured to be a ‘Champion of Change’ at Money20/20 Europe. We’re seeing the role of open banking and open finance having an impact on financial inclusion.
“We’re also noticing that the role of AI and machine learning have a role to play in harnessing the future possibilities for those that aren’t fully included in the financial world and look forward to elevating these important topics at the show”.
