Last week, along with around 180,000 fellow tech nerds, enthusiasts and exhibitors, I found myself in Las Vegas for the annual Consumer Electronics Show. As a CES newbie, the 4,500 different exhibiting companies and speakers was nothing short of overwhelming. Sure, I expected to see a couple of robots. Maybe, a crazy TV or two, but the sheer volume of connected items and creativity of tech impressed me.

The halcyon days of pre-financial crisis banking have left a hangover. Emerging talent has internalized outdated stereotypes of bankers, and the rest of the industry has been tarnished by association. This raises the question—will the Financial Services sector continue to follow a path of least resistance, or will it actively defy the self-selection bias and identify and target a subsegment of youth better oriented to the future of the industry?

Gen Z study explores how financial services can leverage brand to attract diverse talent

With everything from toothbrushes, clothing, scooters, cars, meal delivery and furniture assembly all available from service brands, we live in a fully consumption-based service economy. I believe that brands need to understand that this isn't a fad; it's a foundational shift in our society. Try to think like services and solutions companies. Digital and physical retail is only one node in a broader ecosystem that surrounds the consumer. Look for ways to surround your customers at every turn.
