ClearBank founder to speak at Enterprise Week

Having just launched ClearBank, the UK’s first purpose-built clearing bank in more than 200 years, Nick Ogden has been confirmed as a speaker during Enterprise Week, on Tuesday 16 May.

Organisers say that Mr Ogden will talk about how technology is changing the way we work and play.

From innovating in financial services to empowering consumer behaviour, he will discuss how technology is becoming as disruptive as any global political or economic shock.

The week is being organised by Jersey Business, who's Chief Executive Graeme Smith said: “The Keynote Event in Enterprise Week is the one opportunity in Jersey’s business calendar when business leaders can take a few hours out of their organisations to think about their future.

“Political, economic and technology change is now so rapid and constant that it is imperative that Jersey keeps up and we are delighted that Nick can share his thoughts and experience with us. To be able to hear from a speaker who is driving the development of technology that is changing all our lives is a fantastic opportunity for the business community in Jersey.”

Mr Ogden, who is credited for his part in the creation of e-commerce, started his entrepreneurial journey in Jersey by building the first ever online shop Wine Warehouse. He has since gone on to be awarded UK Entrepreneur of the Year in 2010 and the following year won the Cambridge Innovation Award. 

Speaking about the announcement, Tony Moretta, Chief Executive Digital Jersey said: “With our focus on developing fintech opportunities in Jersey, this is a unique chance to hear one of the leading innovators in this industry talk about what the future holds for digital companies and for us as consumers. 

“We are delighted to be working with Jersey Business during Enterprise Week and encourage every digital business to get involved in this opening keynote event and in the other events being held during the week.”
