David Milligan addresses landmark gathering in Lagos
The digital and financial services industry have continued to show significant developments with the entry of new innovative technology solutions, emergence of new digital business models, increasing adoption of Fintech services and perhaps more conspicuously, growing local and international investments in technology innovation.
For discussions around these trends and on the theme ‘Leading through Digital’; on November 1, 2017, Lagos witnessed a landmark gathering of technology, digital and financial services thought leaders and professionals for the KPMG Digital Summit 2017. The summit which held in Eko Hotel, Lagos was a sequel to the 2016 KPMG Fintech Summit.
Welcoming the audience, Bisi Lamikanra, Partner and Head of Advisory services, KPMG in Nigeria, explained that KPMG organized the summit to provide a forum for the promotion and exchange of ideas that will shape and eventually advance the digital ecosystem in Nigeria.
The discussions kicked off with a presentation on the future of financial services by Boye Ademola, Partner & Lead, Digital Transformation at KPMG in Nigeria. In his talk, Boye noted that the 10 most valuable companies in the world are digital and that businesses that will lead must lead through digital; as investments in digital will be a key differentiator.
A prevalent call that was reiterated by Matchi CEO, David Milligan and many speakers at the summit is the need for increased collaboration between technology companies, innovators, the government and other related regulatory bodies. During his talk, Match's CEO also gave practical insight into how financial institutions can integrate technology companies into their organisations.
