“Innovation is about relevance, sustainability, growth, profitability and scalability,” said BAI Innovation Circle Judge and Head PBB SA Innovation Capability at Standard Bank Group, Paul Steenkamp from South Africa. “These organizations clearly aren’t happy just performing above the norm in their local markets- they want to benchmark their innovation efforts against the best in the world, and this gives a nudge to all other banks to lift their game. It’s been a huge honor being part of the jury. I’ve learned a tremendous amount.”
