Celent Banking Innovation and Insight Day Recap

Celent Banking Innovation and Insight Day Recap
Last Thursday, we hosted our annual Banking Innovation and Insight Day at the Westin Times Square in NYC. Celent Senior Analyst Bob Meara opened up to a packed house with his presentation on top tech trends. This set the stage for the day as we moved into more specific subjects including, social media, risk management, core banking, mobile payments, and more. We had a good number of journalists in attendance to cover the event. Bank Systems & Technology was first out of the gate with a story, and wrote up a detailed piece on the social media panel that I moderated (Citi, USAA Execs Share Social Media Best Practices). I also had the honor of presenting awards to the 18 banks that were selected for our 2010 Model Bank initiative (group photo below).
