​Welcome back to another episode of Nadia’s Humans of FinTech Podcast. Today, Nadia is joined by the brilliant Liam Chennells, CEO of Detected.

Liam is all about people investment and this episode is brimming with his inspiring stories and ideas, that showcase some of the best talent in the industry. He shares the story behind the origins of Detected and how challenges from the pandemic triggered an innovative and thriving business.

He states, “there were so many people just trying to make a quick bit of money during that period and that wasn’t my motivation, which I think is so important, and it’s a part of why things have gone so well because it wasn’t that; it was actually just trying to sort out a problem.”

The conversation then turns to accessibility within the industry. Liam shares his ideas on building a culture that is in favour of an underserved generation and why universities– and the education system as a whole– aren't tailored for everyone.
