FinTech - Who needs an accountant?

Join us at our Fintech event at the Open University

Technology is set to disrupt financial services in the same way as it has revolutionised other industries. Financial Technology – or FinTech – gives SMEs the opportunity to make big savings on their accountancy bills at the same time as challenging traditional white collar businesses to change their business models. 

Milton Keynes companies can find out how they can take advantage of the tsunami of change coming their way at this Biztech event, organised in conjunction with the Open University.

Biztech chairman, Fredi Nonyelu, said: “Technology has changed the landscape for many traditional businesses; including manufacturers and newspapers to name just two.

“Now technology is challenging traditionally white collar industries like accountancy. “One thing is for sure, if those industries don’t adapt to change, and act like King Canute in trying to hold back the tide, they will surely go under.” 

Most people know how easy it is to use banking apps to manage their accounts while on the move. That very small example gives an idea of the scale of what is coming for the financial services sector as technology disrupts old ways of working.

Our speakers will be from The Open University,which runs the world's first online FinTech 101 training course, and Wealth and Tax Management, a Milton Keynes company that has embraced the FinTech revolution. 

Understanding FinTech is also vital for people seeking to work in the financial sector.

Speakers at the Event include:

  • Carl Roberts, Director and Chartered Financial Planner, Wealth and Tax Management
  • Simon Tindall, Head of New Business at Open University Worldwide

Tickets cost £20 plus VAT for non members and £15 plus VAT for Biztech members.  Ticket prices includes light refreshments. There are a small number of free student tickets available.
