Chris Skinner

Some people make things happen, some watch things happen, while others wonder what happened. As a commercial strategist, Chris Skinner looks through the window of opportunity for the financial services industry and delivers his discoveries back through insightful keynote presentations.

Widely considered as one of Europe’s leading thinkers in strategy, financial services, banking, business development, payments, risk management and business transformation – when Chris is not travelling and delivering keynote speeches, he is Chairman of the Financial Services Club, a network for financial professionals and writing for his widely followed financial markets blog ‘The Finanser’.

Chris Skinner is the author of several books including “Digital Bank”, “The Future of Banking”, “The Future of Finance after SEPA”, and “The Future of Investing after MiFID”. As a result his views regularly appear on news media including the BBC, Sky, Bloomberg and The Banker. Chris has also been invited to Judge the Card Awards, TradeTech Awards, Banker’s Awards, Asian Banker’s Excellence in Retail Financial Services program and more recently to become a contributor to the World Economic Forum. As Chris Skinner guides audiences into the banking and finance market, he offers well informed views about what the future may hold and how we can best prepare for what lies ahead.
