Exciting updates about the 2018 Celero Fintech Conference

April 20, 2018
For the last ten years, Celero has hosted an annual Fintech conference for Canadian credit unions, which has grown into a national event that attracts credit unions from across Canada. This year, our conference is at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler in the spectacular Whistler, BC on September 25-28.

We are thrilled to announce that Jason Bates will be joining us as a keynote speaker at the 2018 Celero Fintech Conference.

Co-Founder at 11:FS, a digital fintech think tank, Jason has spent the last few years creating, building, and testing next generation digital banking propositions in the wild.

He co-founded two digital banks (Monzo and Starling) and as Chief Customer Officer created the propositions, built product teams, led the design development of the award winning Monzo app, and defended the banking application with regulators.

Now as part of 11:FS, Jason leads delivery teams in work across the financial services market to help banks drive digital transformation and help them deliver ‘truly digital banking’. 


Banquet Entertainment

Delegates will be treated to a special evening of dining, entertainment and networking. Joining us to provide a night of music is Canadian singer-songwriter, Chantal Kreviazuk.

Kreviazuk is a classically trained pianist, and plays guitar. A two time Juno award winner and five time nominee from Winnipeg, she broke out in the late 90s and early 00s and toured with the Lillth Fair music festival.   Some of her more popular songs include “Surrounded”, “Before You” and a cover of “Leaving on a Jet Plane” which was featured on the Armageddon sound track. She recently released an album and collaborated with some of the biggest names in the music industry like Drake, Christina Aguilera, Kendrick Lamar and Pink.
