"Bank Innovation vs. Fintech"

Charlotte
25
Jun
11:30
am
View More Close

Event Summary:

FCS Charlotte continues its compelling luncheon series with a panel discussion on "Bank Innovation vs. Fintech... and what it means to marketers."

The event will open with a presentation by John Tuders, Director of Innovation at Grant Thornton and Adjunct Professor of Innovation at University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC). He will then moderate a panel of clientside executives, including Ally's Stefan McVeigh and Bank of America's Laurin Titus (additional panelists to be announced).

Some of the questions about Innovation to be tackled at this event include:

  • Understanding when you need a partner?
  • Understanding who to partner with?
  • Understanding how to be an effective partner?
  • How do you market “Powered By," or “In Partnership With.” 

These are the right questions for Banks to consider when working with Fintechs. Speed to market and expertise are key to delivering Innovative Products and Solutions.  There's no need to go it alone.

Join us for another great discussion -- and the camaraderie of fellow Charlotte marketers supporting the FCS.

The program will begin promptly at 11:45am.

At this event, we will again stage our very successful "dessert mixer"; after the luncheon panel (12:45pm), we'll break for this networking feature, allowing all our guests to mingle with the speakers and each other over sweets and coffee.
