We all know how important it is to have a strong brand. Investing in your brand is just as necessary as investing in any other part of your business.
A strong and clear brand narrative helps get across who you are and what you can do for your customers. As is often said, “Your brand is what people say about you when you’re not in the room”. Walking around trade events is a great way of seeing how different businesses tell their story and reminds us all how important it is to build a brand with clarity, precision and uniqueness.
As we are spending more and more time working with fintech clients, we thought it would be useful to put together a list of some of the key fintech and financial services events over the next year in London and beyond.
We’ll be checking out which brands are getting it right and which might use some help!
Please note, some of these events may have already taken place.
