    9:00 am – 5:00 pm
    Asian Banking School
    The enormous flux of change in the world is changing the face of society, banking and business systems. This programme will be divided into four major analytical strands:

    1. The critical analysis of trends and developments that shape the society of the future; like major paradigm shifts, new social values, novel consumer behaviour patterns and the constant impact of technology

    2. The analysis of trends that are related to the banking industry such as how to anticipate and design the bank 3.0. Key areas of discussion will include “de novo” and Protean branch experiences, attentive environments, micro-banking and civic banking

    3. The analytical discussion of specific trends in bank marketing and management. A myriad of issues will be raised and scrutinised such as reverse marketing, insight–driven marketing, the optichannel, empowered brands, service design, cross-channel customer journeys, continual experimentation, the “new normal“ and the multi-syndrome. Additionally, other new concepts in this area will be explained, like simplicity marketing, platforms for customer engagement, the future of management, betapreneurship, strategic agility and marketing analytics theatre

    4. The last session will entail the analysis, discussion and presentation of several very recent mini-case studies on World Banking and Asian Banking on timely and up to date topics that were reflected and published by some of the most prestigious world and business media such as the Financial Times, New York Times, Bloomberg, etc.

    Afternoon Session
    The  final session of the seminar will be devoted to the analysis, discussion and presentation by groups of participants of pre-assigned and selected mini-case studies and clippings from the international press related to  World banking and Asian banking.

  • Methodology
    The training approach and methods will coalesce around participant engagement and relevance to practice. There will be strong support and engagement in discovery-led training, where all participants contribute to the knowledge and the analytical learning process. The “learning by discovery” and Problem-Based Learning approaches will be applied whereby the participants will have the opportunity to search and explore new concepts and trends. Participants are encouraged to bring their computer tablets to enable them to engage in these computer searches.
