Featuring interviews with some of the top minds in business, this podcast explores how financial institutions can prepare for the future of banking.
Leadership During Times of Uncertainty
More than ever, creating an organization that responds to customer’s needs, cares for and inspires employees, embraces purpose, emphasizes diversity, equity, and inclusion, and helps a firm become future-ready — all boil down to one thing: leadership.
While conversations about the importance of a disruptive mindset started well before the pandemic, the crisis accelerated the need for strong leadership significantly. The question becomes how ready is existing leadership to lead an organization to success during uncertain times?
My guest on the Banking Transformed podcast is Charlene Li – Chief Research Officer, PA Consulting. Charlene shares how leadership can better embrace change, accept risks, and help organizations become future-ready.
How All Banks Can Now Offer Industry-Leading Digital Mortgages
Most mortgage experiences are overwhelming and full of friction, with outdated processes that includes a stack of paper forms and multiple in-person meetings. And, while many financial institutions would like to provide a better experience, resources are scarce.
New mortgage-as-a-service (MaaS) solutions allow smaller financial institutions to utilize best-in-class technology, while still retaining personalized engagement. This enables local banks to compete with larger financial institutions for the most important household relationship.
My guests on the Banking Transformed podcast are Jonathan Price, EVP of Q2 and Sam Schey, EVP of Rocket Mortgage. They are going to explain how a bank can combine an industry-best digital mortgage process with a bank’s existing mobile and online banking platform.

Embedded Finance and BaaS: The Future of Banking
Embedded finance integrates financial services, such as payments, lending, insurance, etc. within a non-financial business’ infrastructure. This provides a seamless bridge between a brand, the consumer, and a financial solutions provider.
