Transactions Mark Krymalowski

How long have you been dealing with your panel’s topic and why are you enthusiastic about it?

I’ve been dealing with digital transformation and leadership in digital environments for about eight years. Working with start-ups as well as established companies, I’m particularly enthusiastic about the area of digital strategy and transformation, which goes hand in hand with changes in management requirements and expectations.

As a speaker, what are your expectations of the upcoming TRX?

I look forward to exchanging views, and learning from the other speakers, as well as from the participants.

This will be the second TRX. What relevance does the event hold for you and for the industry?

It’s a highly relevant event in the FinTech sector.

Due to the corona situation, for the first time this year’s TRX will take place in a hybrid format. What experience have you had so far with such digital event formats?

I’ve only had positive experiences so far. The challenge is to be inclusive for both on-site and virtual participants. I’m excited about TRX’s approach.&nbsp

“The challenge is to be inclusive for both on-site and virtual participants.”

TRX takes place in Offenbach. Why should FinTech be an important issue outside of the big hubs?

Because it concerns us all, everywhere.

Looking back over the past year, what has changed massively within your particular field of influence? What has been positive, what negative?

Corona has led to digital elements being introduced across the working world. That’s good, and now it’s important to maintain and further develop those positive, new experiences.
