Thursday, September 10

4:00 p.m. - 4:05 p.m.

FISD Introduction

Welcome and introductions.

David Anderson, FIA, Program Director, FISD/Atradia

4:05 p.m. - 4:25 p.m.

Informal Conversation

With the intent of 'kicking off'  and 'priming the pump' of this topic our invited speakers will start the conversation:

Discussing the ‘new normal’ – a personal and SOCIABLE conversation about such things as working from home and more generally how all of us in the market data industry (as individuals) are working through this unusual time.

Michael Hodgson, Head of Information Services - Global Market Data and Indices , Euronext

John Mason, Global Head Enterprise Middle and Back Office, Refinitiv

Sallianne Taylor, Global Manager, Market Structure and Strategic Alliances, Bloomberg L.P.

4:25 p.m. - 4:40 p.m.

First Break Out Discussion

The larger group will be broken down into much smaller groups of no more than 8.

The idea is that you can have an informal and SOCIABLE conversation with others in the industry. We know it is not the same as clinking glasses and socialising during an FISD Networking event but it’s a move in the right direction - its 'virtual' socialising'!

FISD will informally suggest a 'leader' for each group.

4:40 p.m. - 4:55 p.m.

Second Break Out Discussion

So you dont get stuck with the same people - and so they dont get stuck with you :) - FISD will mix the groups each time.

4:55 p.m. - 5:10 p.m.

Third Break Out Discussion

As per the previous two sessions.

5:10 p.m. - 5:20 p.m.

Return to Plenary Group

Wrap up discussion - where we get a quick update from anyone who wishes to comment on what came out of the breakout sessions.

5:20 p.m. - 5:25 p.m.

FISD Conclusion

Thank yous and goodbyes
