Disrupt or be disrupted – Traditional banks facing nimble competitors

Be inspired by learning how DNB developed VIPPS in face of new competition.
And what comes next in financial services.

Listen to Even Westerveld share how DNB developed Vipps to compete with itself and to compete internationally. 
Even Westerveld is heading the brand, marketing and people team in Vipps. With more than 3,7 million users (and growing), Vipps has changed the way we pay for stuff, transfer money and identify ourselves online. Does their business model scale to expand internationally and is it sufficiently robust to keep its stronghold in Norway? Prior to Vipps, Even is an IMD Alum and managed the External Communication team at DNB. DNB is Norway´s largest financial institution with more than 10 000 employees and operations in 20 countries.
Even will be challenged by Tom Staavi who will outline potential options to the future of money and payment services. Tom Staavi is Information Director at Finance Norway, the association of banks and insurance companies in Norway.

Tom will share fresh insights from his role as lead of a project group with a mandate to look at consequences of various technological changes for the industry, society and consumers

Tom is a well-known authority on personal finances and was for several years the editor of Dine Penger. He is active in the media and is a frequent participant in the public debate.

This event will take place at Forskningsparken and will also be streamed live to remote participants.
