Description

FinTech Australia and TransferWise are proud to present the launch of Australia’s most thought-provoking conference, Intersekt.

The flagship event brings together an impressive line-up of global and local speakers to challenge ideas on the future of fintech. It celebrates Australian talent. But also promotes the global opportunity for the fintech industry.

Intersekt 2019 will be better than ever with a 3-day program (Oct 15 to Oct 17) of leading international and national speakers, free workshops, optional satellite events and extensive networking opportunities with two social functions.

To give you a taste of what to come, TransferWise’s global VP of Growth, Nilan Peiris will present an engaging keynote on the company’s five key steps for growth.

Nilan will share TransferWise's growth journey as well as explain how running an organisation of autonomous independent teams, has enabled TransferWise to scale at supersonic speeds to become Europe's most valuable fintech.

Nilan will also reveal TransferWise's secrets to generating and managing growth, how evangelism can be the biggest driver of growth, and how you can replicate TransferWise's strategy for your organisation.
