Last month Norfolk Network invited Fintech expert David Brear to talk about his career, how he co-founded his business 11:FS and the challenges facing banks competing in the digital age. Here’s an extract from my write-up for the Norfolk Network website.
David Brear is CEO and co-founder of 11:FS, host of the Fintech Insider podcast and a UEA graduate. He has the attention and ear of CEOs from some of the world’s largest financial institutions and has built a business on helping banks become “truly digital”.
David described his career as “a voyage of exploration”. A driven individual, he is drawn to industries and problems that need solving and endeavours to understand and master new things as quickly as possible and from many different angles.
Before leaving “real work” he delivered large-scale digital transformations at Aviva and Lloyds Banking Group, and led Gartner’s Global Digital Banking practice. He also cut his teeth in user experience at Foolproof, so it was fitting that its Founder Tom Wood should introduce David at Norfolk Network’s January event.
