I’m Dave Birch. I’m an author, advisor and commentator on digital financial services (and a few other things beside). I hope I’m known as a decent public speaker, a reasonable consultant, a good board-level advisor, a respected media commentator, a well-read blogger and inveterate tweeter.

I am one of the founders of Consult Hyperion, a leading consultancy in the field of electronic transactions, and I’ve advised some of the world’s biggest banks, financial services organisations, telecommunications providers, IT companies and others about the future of electronic transactions.
