    Have you ever taken out a loan? Most of us take it for granted that we can take out a loan to get an education or buy a house, meanwhile seven out of 10 people in LATAM are classified as ‘unbanked’. How can payment technology bridge the gap? Will the unbanked population of today be active participants in the economy of tomorrow? What role will central banks play in revolutionizing the financial sector, and what impact will they have on financial inclusion and economic growth? What tools and approaches will be required to engage low-literacy populations? This panel will approach the topic with a multifaced perspective. This session promises to be informative and engaging.

    1:15 PM - 2:00 PMAWARDS PRESENTATION
    3:15 PM - 4:30 PMFOMO ON WHAT'S NEXT
    Social media platforms are filled with photos, stories, and updates from friends, family, celebrities, and influencers. While it's great for staying connected, it can present a skewed view of reality and actual achievements. People tend to share their happiest moments and greatest achievements, creating a one-sided highlight reel and a sense that everyone else is living a more exciting, fulfilling life than you. How does this impact your day-to-day work life, and does it perpetuate the ‘imposter syndrome’ within organizations? This panel of leaders will share their observations on the impact of social media on their teams and themselves —the good, the bad, and the ugly.
