The Other 50: Something about Mary
Nothing like a natural disaster to bring us back to reality. Food, shelter, water … power and clean air - the basic modern day necessities that we need to survive. Things that we take for granted. When it comes down to it though, it is the human connection - the communities that we live in and the bonds that we forge, that matters. For most of us who look at new technology products day in and day out, it is easy to become jaded and forget about our roots. Banking is not about creating the next new shiny gadget; nor is it simply about lending more money faster and easier. It is ultimately about serving people and closing the gaps in our society.
In this new episode of “The Other 50”, Theo and Brad chat with Mary about her passion in banking and fintech, reflecting on the realities of modern day consumer finances, and the need for financial services industry to go back to our roots and do more.
