How To Be An Innovation Leader In The Digital Age

Micheal Jordaan, the former CEO of First National Bank and an innovation leader in the digital space, was the guest speaker at Heavy Chef in August 2013. Hosted at Deloittes in Johannesburg, this event focused on innovation by gleaning insights from Jordaan’s experience at FNB and how digital innovation is challenging traditional banking norms. 

Sharing personal stories and lessons on the topic, Jordaan emphasised the centrality of an open-ended and inclusive company culture. According to Jordaan, “If you don’t have a culture that recognises that leadership doesn’t know everything, you cannot innovate.”

Revolutionising digital consumer relations in the South African banking sector is clearly as much about ideation and product development as it is about fostering an all-encompassing environment where employees can become innovators in their own right. Over 400 people attended this inspiring session.
