This week’s podcast is something of a preview for next month’s WatersTechnology Innovation Exchange. Tony, Wei-Shen, Max Bowie, and Joanna Wright got together for a Microsoft Teams video call to help promote the event, but the conversation was good (and long) so we decided to put the full thing up on the podcast. Max kicks things off talking about how banks might look to turn their office spaces into something of a WeWork for fintechs (8:30). Joanna has been writing a lot about ESG of late, both from a regulatory perspective, as well as looking at actual use cases, so she delves into how ESG is being used in today’s markets (14:00). Wei-Shen looks at innovation in the APAC region and how Asia may be ahead of North America and Europe when it comes to tools that allow employees to work remotely (19:00). Finally, Tony asks some follow-up questions of the three editors (26:00-55:00).
