Community-driven industry events like the Nordic Fintech Summit differ from mainstream events in several critical ways.
In addition to the purpose of the event, community-driven industry events also differ in the sheer quality of the agenda. An event is like a play and the better the play is cast and rehearsed, the better the outcome in front of the audience. By running the community we rehearse non-stop.
It’s the small details and connections that matter the most as community operators like Fintech Farm we have less room to compromise than mainstream events. One critical area where we do not compromise is in determining whom we empower to host our signature events. The hosts must be or become part of the community but they absolutely have to be natural on stage as well. Although the requirements are exceptionally high, the community also feeds us natural candidates for the job.
And so it did feed us a stellar lead and a unique line-up of hosts this year as well!
It is therefore with great pride and joy that we announce this year’s Lead Stage Host Sarah Häger.
Sarah needs very little introductions within the Nordic fintech community, but more importantly, her merits speak for themselves. Sarah is a banker gone fintech and there are very few people that are more qualified than her to lead a discussion on open banking and finance. She sees the big picture from all angles, knows how to navigate the regulatory fields of PSD2 API interfaces and most importantly is able to think big about the business potential that technology offers banking and finance.
Mainstream events are content with hosts who can fill the gaps with small talk, take care of housekeeping, and keep the agenda on time, but for us, events are the moments where we have to deliver exceptional value.
So why just attend an event when you can be part of a community? Don’t miss Nordic Fintech Summit in Helsinki along with 600+ other delegates on May 11th at the peak of the Nordic spring!
