Does Anyone Want To Be A Cash Infrastructure Provider Anymore? by David Hensley, Director, Enryo

The fourth industrial revolution has taken hold and the challengers have taken the battle to the old guard. The transition to a digital economy is inevitable; soon the infrastructure we have relied upon will be gone forever. So why are so many sleepwalking into a cashless society in which many will be left behind, and why have so few made plans to protect one of our basic human rights?One year ago I was part of the group that produced the UK Access to Cash report. We asked the question “is Britain ready to go cashless?” and raised the concern that the UK was sleepwalking millions of consumers into a cashless society.Join this pre-conference webinar where I will highlight some of the themes we will be exploring in November when I will be joined by a panel of experts to see if we can find ways to ensure providers remain in the market to facilitate access to cash.

Cash, Cards Or Cashless? Attempting To Understand The World Post-Covid-19 by David Fagleman, Director & Co Founder, Enryo

Economic forecasts and consumer trends have taken an unexpected turn as behaviour changes and spending drops, leading to some drastic statements and predictions about the future for work, the environment, retail and payments.
