Innotribe's action- and idea-packed four-day, 24-session program concluded last Thursday. A diverse range of speakers delighted, inspired, and provoked audiences with concepts ranging from organizational design to FinTech innovation to the future of money/the world/humanity.

Ways of Working
In a few days our team will head to Geneva, Switzerland to deliver Innotribe at Sibos. Sibos is big in every way.

SWIFT is a co-op, and Sibos is a chance to get the band together and talk about the issues and topics that matter to their member community and partners.
