Embarking on the journey of knowledge exchange, our Chief Compliance and Risk Officer, Thibaud Catry, took center stage at the Kaunas University of Technology’s SKILLed FinTech academy, captivating the attention of inquisitive freshman-year students.
A luminary in discussions surrounding KYC, AML, and overall compliance, Thibaud seamlessly wove together the threads of experience and expertise, transforming a lecture into an immersive experience. The students weren’t just spectators; they were active participants, firing off thought-provoking questions and gaining valuable insights from an industry expert.
Hats off to the Kaunas University of Technology for curating this enlightening opportunity. The diverse participation from students across programs signals a collective thirst for understanding the intricacies of the FinTech sector and honing expertise in this rapidly evolving domain.
Students emphasized that they were most interested in getting to know what the regulation of fintech companies is like because it was new and unheard of; to get to know fintech terminology through specific situations and examples. They were glad that the lecturer spoke from his own experience and was not afraid to deviate from the slide material, as it made the presentation several times more interesting. The students highlighted that they would have liked to participate in the workshop, but they ran out of time because of no less interesting Q&A. The students also mentioned that the lecturer’s communication is highly rated, as he both encouraged participation in the discussion and managed to answer all questions.
This encapsulates the students’ appetite for nuanced insights and their commendation for authenticity, a touch that elevated the lecture into a memorable experience.
In summary, the synergy between Thibaud’s expertise, student enthusiasm, and KTU’s commitment paints a vivid picture of the evolving landscape of FinTech education. As we traverse the realms of knowledge dissemination, we’re not merely imparting information; we’re igniting a spark that propels the next generation of FinTech leaders into a future brimming with possibilities.
