Banking on Australia as a tech nation
Australia is on a mission to stand out on the world map as a tech nation with a globally competitive digital economy. And it’s not just tech start-ups driving it all, well-established companies across industries and all levels of government and education have their eyes set on owning a chapter in our nation’s digital narrative.
It may or may not come as a surprise that Australia’s banks play a critical role in setting the tone for our digital economy. As they say, if ‘software is eating the world’, then banks are a lifetime’s supply of food.
In this session, James shares his journey from moving from a big tech company to Australia’s largest bank and how the unique problem spaces along with a difference in culture sets off a chain reaction in building Australia’s growing digital economy.
