The discussion will be chaired by David Lee of Scotsman Conferences and held in front of an audience of fintech students, businesses and a range of other partners in Scotland's fintech community. The key points of the discussion will be captured and reported in The Scotsman and on scotsman.com, as both online editorial and video content.

The discussion will be segmented into 5 main topics of 15-20 minutes each.
