FinTech

You may have heard the term ‘FinTech’ flying around, but what actually is it? Financial Technologies, also known as FinTech, are computer programs and other technologies used to support or enable banking and financial services [1]. The Finance Global Summit, held in London, provides a space for innovators, institutions, investors, regulators, policymakers and startups to come together and discuss the progress and direction of financial technology. 

International Women’s Day

When I was younger it never occurred to me that certain paths may or may not be available to me as an individual because of what I look like. I was very fortunate to grow up in a household where my mum made it very clear that I could do, and be whatever I wanted to and because of her unwavering support and belief in me I never doubted it.

Balancing the cost of learning

Investment v ROI is a business-wide discussion point and is often the backbone in measuring success in any business. Why is this not always the case for learning?

Systems e-learning doesn't have to be boring

When I was asked to write a course for ASOS, I thought – great – I’ve spent hours and hours trawling through their website for my outfits. They have everything from a “going to tea with the parents” outfit, to a “going out-out” dress. You need an outfit, they’ve got it. But when I found out the e-learning was going to be systems based, I was a bit gutted. Even as an Instructional Designer, I feel the dread of a systems course approaching like everyone else does. They’re hard to get excited about because they can be pretty boring… but not this one. I decided to make this one different.
