“We are delighted to partner with Finnovex in the much awaited 11th Edition of Finnovex East Africa Summit coming up in the next two weeks in Nairobi. We look forward to thought-provoking engagements on the ever disruptive world of technology and the real meaning of digital transformation.
The last two years have indeed proven just how volatile and complex the business environment can be and further demonstrated the value of technology in enabling continuity. We will be unpacking this and much more together with industry industry experts in Kenya at this key event, and we are keen to be part of this true knowledge exchange platform for the banking and finance sector in the region.”
