As a member of the Oliver Wyman Forum’s City Readiness Initiative, Nick Copeland is applying his expertise in preparing corporate clients for technological disruptions to analyze and devise ways to improve cities in an age of relentless technological change. During his career, Nick has focused on advising financial services companies and governments on digital transformations that harness the power of new technologies while avoiding being caught off guard by technology that fails to deliver. One of his most exciting assignments was building a digital bank from scratch.
What intrigues Nick most about the Forum’s city readiness initiative is its emphasis on bringing together leaders with different backgrounds to explore new ways for cities to prosper. He has lived most of his life in London, though he has worked across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Nick holds a B.A. from the University of Warwick and is an avid swimmer and skier.
