In the wake of the Royal Banking Commission, the regtech space has become one to watch. So how do you drive innovation within a regulated environment? What role can technology play to drive better customer outcomes?

To help us understand how corporates are thinking about this challenge, we have two amazing panelists:

Elliot Cousins, Executive Manager, Partnerships @ CBA Business Banking

Elliot firmly believes that collaboration beats competition hands down, and that those who will excel in business over the coming years will be the ones who are able to collaborate better their rivals. Starting his career in investment banking, Elliot has held executive, board and advisory roles across banking, fintech and consulting, and currently heads up Partnerships for CBA’s business and private division.

Dan Canham, Head of Accelerator, Technology & Innovation @ TAL
