What is it?
Building on A Meeting of Minds, Owen James is excited to announce the launch of oneMIND. A digital platform for financial services to table their biggest challenges, and by tapping into the ‘crowd’ identify the best actionable ideas and solutions - as well as fostering best practice.
Why are we doing this?
Over a decade ago we launched A Meeting of Minds to provide a platform for the financial services industry to be inspired and to work through the biggest challenges facing their businesses. The end goal was always to identify areas where collectively we could try to drive change forward. However, it is becoming increasingly difficult to innovate effectively in such a fast paced world of rising cost income ratios; regulatory overload; evolving digital and customer requirements; and volatile markets.
Therefore, by digitising our proposition and working with a number of strategic partners we have created a platform to help businesses become more innovative and ensure you are identifying the best solutions or ideas in the market. We want to start a revolution!
"Change is the law of life, and those who only look in the past or present are certain to miss the future", John F Kennedy.

Frequently asked questions
Can anyone submit a challenge?
How public is this platform?
How will Owen James look to monetise this?
How will Owen James select and present the best ideas and solutions?
We want to remain completely neutral, so will be putting together an Advisory Board of figure heads from leading distributors (not providers) and therefore with no axe to grind. Nobody likes a sales-pitch, so we will also ask our Advisory Board to present their rationale behind their decision.
How time consuming is it to submit an idea?
Time is money. Think of this as a two stage process. Initially we simply want the basic concept of your idea or solution, and why you think it ticks the right boxes. If it stands out from the crowd and makes it through to the final round, we will ask for more detail.
"An absolutely news idea is one of the rarest things known to man," Sir Thomas More.
