Scratch Ep. 10 – How to Stay Ahead of the Disruption Curve with Chris Skinner

Chris Skinner is well known for his extensive writing, speaking and advising on the disruption necessary in the banking and fintech worlds. He’s proud to be a self-proclaimed troublemaker because “the more trouble you make the more you can fix things.” In this week’s conversation with Eric, Chris explains everything from why he focuses his lens so intensely on the future, to why the financial world  isn’t as complicated as it might appear. He also explains the mechanism behind his staggering productivity and offers a truly global perspective on purpose-led banking. 

Chris’s next book – Digital For Good, If You Don’t Stand for Something You Fall Down – to be published in the second quarter of 2022 – will provide an in-the-round global perspective on purpose-driven banking and finance. 

It’s a conversation you won’t want to miss.
