[Dave Birch] We had the last of the lunchtime round tables in the Innovation in Payment series at the Armourer's Hall with Sandra Alzetta from Visa Europe, Ruth Wandhofer from Citi and Chris Skinner of Balatro on the panel and a terrific delegate turn out. I thought I'd better arm myself in case of hostile feedback.
Fortunately the assembled crowd were unarmed, generally friendly and their honest and constructive criticism was genuinely welcomed.
It was with some sadness that I present this final roundtable report, since the programme has been wonderful, educational and interesting. I am very happy to be able to report that the CSFI and Visa Europe are to continue their collaboration and as of today I am the Visa Europe CSFI Research Fellow for the coming year. The topic for the coming year's programme will be "Identity in Financial Services" and I hope that you will join us at the new blog of the same name. The first roundtable, scheduled for 16th December, will be announced there later today.
