This blog is my attempt to write semi-coherently about innovation, technology, banking and a few other things that might actually be more interesting. If you are sensitive to poor grammar usage, a general disregard for the rules of the English language and ill thought out ideas, probably best to leave now. The opinions stated here are mine alone and not the opinions of my employer…my employer has far superior opinions than I and they are much better written. This site was all my idea and is not in anyway endorsed or authorised by my employer.
You can find out more about me by checking out my online activities which are mainly reflected through Twitter. Feel free to follow me if you are that way inclined @aden_76
I am also keen to try my hand at a bit more public speaking as I like making PowerPoints and talking about stuff. I have talked at a few events so far. I spoke about banking technology and disruption at Ignite London 4, I said some things about social media and future banking technology at Reuters for Finextra’s Social Media Days event. I also said some things recently on similar topics in the lovely city of Zurich for Capco and the Swiss Finance Institute. If you would like me to say some words at your event please get in touch…probably easiest via the Twitter address above.
Here is some sort of speaker bio. I am not very good at writing these things (1st person or 3rd person?) but this should give me something to cut and paste and edit to save me doing it from scratch.
Aden Davies is a Social Technologies Specialist at HSBC and is part of the HTS Technology Innovation team. He is responsible for researching new technologies and trends and working out if and how they can be applied to the world of banking and the internal organisation of HSBC.
He is currently researching the social web and it’s continued impacts on banking and finance and the world in general.
In his increasingly rare spare time he tries to spend as much of that time as possible with his young son.
