With over 57 Million card holders, $13 Billion in revenues, and more than 17,000 employees around the world Discover is one of the most recognised payment providers in the world.

Relax and rewind the keynote


During my keynote I walked the audience through a variety of key topics including the forces responsible for accelerating the world’s rate of change, and then walked them through future company business models and the trends that will change how we work, where we work, and who and what we work with, complete with examples.
