Announcing the first half of our 2019 webinar schedule

Our expert-led webinars have been a hit with the digital finance community over the last year and we’re extremely proud to announce all the exciting webinars we have lined up for the first half of 2019. We’ve already had our first webinar for the year, where our co-founder and executive director Ignacio Mas discussed smart banknotes and the future of money. If you missed out, you can listen to the webinar here.

Coming up later this year, we have all three of DFI’s founders leading webinars. Our CEO Gavin Krugel will be talking through the future of mobile money in April (date and time TBC), while our chairman David Porteous will be exploring the evolving role of superplatforms on 9 May at 2pm CAT. Finally, Ignacios Mas will be leading a second webinar, this time on the fintech stack, on 30 May at 3pm CAT.

We will also be welcoming three of our teaching staff from the Fletcher School at Tufts University, onto our webinar program. Professor Kim Wilson will be speaking about money, migration and the role of underground and formal finance. Then Roxani Krystalli and Julie Zollmann will be presenting their research on gender and financial services.

Three of DFI’s Community of Practice (CoP) facilitators, Ophelia Oni, Charity Chikumbi and Ann Muhangi, are also collaborating to present on the impact of financial education programmes in Ghana, Zambia and Uganda.

We will be sharing dates and sign-up links for these webinars as they become available.

We are also partnering with Cenfri, FiDA and Caribou Digital to bring you even more webinars later in the year so expect more topics to be added to this list as the year progresses.

Our webinars are limited to 100 people, so when dates are finalised and communications sent out, make sure you sign up as soon as possible to secure your place. Webinar attendees will also get access to special discount rates on related DFI courses, making it easier for them to grow their digital finance skills.

If you miss out on a webinar, however, don’t worry. The recording will be made available via our website and on our YouTube channel.
