The future of On-line commerce and the digital wallet – Oded Zehavi Paypal

E-commerce and mobile commerce have dramatically changed the way brands reach customers, making it faster and easier for consumers to make purchases on the fly while avoiding the hassles of going to the store. This offers tremendous gains in convenience, but something crucial is lost when you remove the human element from the shopping experience. (Forbes, Oct 2012)
We’ll discuss the threats and opportunities for retailers , start-ups and financial institutes in a world where the boundaries between on line and off line commerce are blurring, the latest trends and different players who are trying to provide payment solutions and build digital wallets in a fragmented and complex global financial infrastructure and how Omni-channel retailing is creating new type of user experiences that will change commerce as we know it.
Oded Zehavi is PayPal’s Business Development Director. Until the beginning of this year Oded serve as regional director of PayPal Israel and Africa with overall responsibility for PayPal’s business growth in the region. In this role, he leads the rollout of new products, services and partnerships to increase adoption and usage of PayPal among consumers and businesses.
Prior to PayPal, Zehavi worked for Leumi Card, a leading credit card issuer and acquirer in Israel. At Leumi Card, he singlehandedly established the international business development division, where he served as vice president and led teams responsible for international strategy, partnerships, customer service and operations.

Zehavi received a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

    I don't recall seeing an announcement about the Junction moving to a new location. So I show up to the 4th floor and see from afar a dark hallway. I go out the building thinking I entered a wrong entrance - well this was it. I go back up, and this time I noticed a crumpled and torn paper note in the dark mentioned another address on same (?) street. Well, I could not find it and gave up.

      ron - from oded - "you know what an experienced speaker should "it is a great question beacuse there is a slide about it"

      i suspect it will be a side-topic though.
