Telecom's Huge Role
Service providers play a huge role in serving the 'unbanked,' both in the United States and around the world. In fact, some countries rely extensively on phone companies for payments - whether it's between individuals or between an individual and a business. Mobile payments are a huge opportunity for many service providers and deliver an invaluable service to those who cannot or won't use traditional banks for reasons ranging from lack of local banking institutions to poor credit.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial and often most challenging is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company Tribold from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
