    Keys to Success for Community Banking

    Keys to Success for Community Banking

    At a time when the competitiveness in the banking industry is more intense than ever, and the need for digital transformation has never been greater, is the viability of smaller community organizations at risk? Is there a way for community banks and credit unions to stand out in a world of digital giants?
    To dive deeper into the viability of community banking organizations, we have Gabe Krajicek, CEO of Kasasa, on the show. He discusses the benefits of local banking as well as the the opportunities for community banks to serve consumers and communities.

    Turning Market Disruption Into Innovation Opportunity

    Turning Market Disruption Into Innovation Opportunity

    McKinsey found that 90% of executives “believe that the COVID-19 crisis will fundamentally change the way they do business over the next five years.” Unfortunately, only 21% “feel confident that they are prepared to capture new growth opportunities.”

    At a time when technology solutions are abundant, an innovation culture is required more than ever in banking. This is because status quo is not an option in a marketplace that is changing faster than ever before, with competitors of all sizes creating new solutions at scale.

    We are very fortunate to have Amy Radin, founder and principal of Pragmatic Innovation Partners and author of the award-winning book, ‘The Change Maker’s Playbook: How to Seek, Seed and Scale Innovation In Any Company’.

    How Banking Can Thrive in a Post-Pandemic Reality

    How Banking Can Thrive in a Post-Pandemic Reality

    The pandemic disrupted the entire planet, changing consumer behavior, altering business and government assumptions, and dramatically impacting business plans. The future is still unclear, but the opportunities (and risks) are immense.

    What lies ahead will define winners and losers. From adoption of new technologies to a redefined future of work, and new innovation culture, digital banking transformation will require a paradigm shift in leadership thinking and a new level of agility.

    Our guest is Paolo Sironi, Global Research Leader for Banking and Finance at the IBM Institute for Business Value. We discuss how financial institutions will need to explore a new normal, which may require continual reinvention of business models and solutions.

    Driving Digital Sales in Financial Services

    Driving Digital Sales in Financial Services

    The way people and businesses shop for and buy financial services has been altered dramatically since the pandemic. No longer needing to go to a physical location, consumers can do their research, purchasing and ongoing engagement on their phone.

    But just because banks and credit unions have enabled consumers to open and use accounts digitally doesn’t mean they will. Growth is not a given ... and satisfaction is far from guaranteed.

    We are very fortunate to have James Robert Lay, CEO of the Digital Growth Institute and author of the book, “Banking on Digital Growth” on the show. He discusses digital sales models and how organizations can multiply results by following a well-defined formula.

    The Importance of a Modern Banking Platform

    Modern technology is providing institutions with opportunities that expand well beyond traditional financial services. As part of digital banking transformation, financial institutions can process data and engage with consumers in ways never before possible. Tools such as open banking, cloud computing, AI and Platformification have become table stakes for remaining competitive.

    The question is, how do we prioritize the investment in available technologies? More importantly, how do we deploy these technologies to increase market share and improve customer experiences?

    Our guest is Andrew Beatty, Head of Global Next Generation Banking at FIS Global. He shares his insights and projections as to where the banking industry must focus efforts to succeed in the future.

    The Evolution of the Branch Strategy at Citi

    The Evolution of the Branch Strategy at Citi

    The pandemic has caused many banks to rethink their branch network strategy. For banks to be positioned for a future that includes greater reliance on digital delivery, organizations must explore ways that technology can enable stronger human interactions as well.

    It is clear that the role of the branch has changed dramatically over the past decade, but the importance of human connection still remains. But what is the right balance of physical and digital delivery for the future? And what is needed to transition to new models?

    We are very fortunate to have Mindy Mercaldo, Head of US Branch Network at Citi, to discuss the future of bank branch delivery and how to support growth with new delivery models.
