“Forward Exchanges” Podcast Introduction

The pace of change in fintech and payments is dizzying. Now, more than ever, global brands–like Nium–have a responsibility to help business leaders keep up. We’ve made it part of our mission to deliver the education and the insights that business leaders need, and in a format that they want. That’s why I am excited to introduce our new podcast, “Forward Exchanges,” dedicated to helping leaders, like yourself, stay at the forefront of the fast-emerging changes in fintech.  

Why this podcast?  

We wanted to offer unique access to enriching conversations on the revolution in digital payments. In this six-episode series, we’ll take a trip around the world, exploring payments in a new way. You’ll hear from experts, partners, and industry influencers about how they’re driving the modern money movement with topics ranging from the not-so-remote future of work to how the travel industry is right for disruption. We’ll explore everything you need to know about Web 3 and crypto, and we’ll challenge you in how you think about inclusivity in the connected economy. 

We encourage you to join us on this 30-minute journey, once every two weeks. Whether you’re new to global payments, a digital transformation veteran, or just looking for some great advice on new global fintech strategies- this is the podcast for you.
