Linking Value with Service – Positive economic results through Clear Vision
Mark Ripplinger President and CEO, Everlink, Toronto

The change in the landscape of Financial Services – in terms of both services and competition – is rapidly accelerating.  Non-traditional players are now bringing new and innovative products to the market, but the consumer response suggests that incumbent providers are lagging behind. What will this mean to these organizations? Not only will the advent of new services create disruption, but more importantly, who will create the new Financial Services organization that responds, builds and deliver these services to the consumer. Where do you start?  What should you do? How do you avoid “analysis paralysis”?  Mark Ripplinger, President and CEO of Everlink Payment Services Inc., the leading provider of comprehensive, innovative & integrated Payment solutions & services for credit unions, banks and ISO’s in Canada will share his insights and leadership visions for effective executive action.

Vision isn’t enough – focus for action and success
Dr. Peter G. W. Keen,

How do financial services organizations innovate in their financial structures to avoid commoditization and margin erosion, capital investment strains, escalating regulatory compliance costs, and high service costs that do not grow revenues?

Dr. Peter Keen has been a thought leader at the forefront of financial industry strategy for over 40 years. As an author, professor and business advisor to some of the world's largest financial organizations, Peter has set the pace for what has become the modern age of electronic financial service delivery.

This session will be a frank and open discussion, performed in an interview format, where Peter will be asked to trace not only what have been the successful paradigms for developing innovative solutions, but where are service and product design headed in financial services? What do successful financial organizations need to focus on and how do they rally the support necessary to deliver on the promise? How can these ideas be applied within the context of the Caribbean geography?

LEARNING SESSION 3 B6
Building a better Financial Industry through Teamwork

Randy Kahn, Chairman of the Board, AFTRA-SAG Federal Credit Union. Former President, First Data Direct Banking. Former SVP, First Interstate Bank.

Competition and Cooperation (often called co-opetition) is a reality in much of the financial services industry – and one of its inherent strengths, when done properly. However, it has always been a challenge to find effective mechanisms and leadership to build successful relationships and structures to make this happen. The silos that have traditionally existed, even between members of the same industry groups, are now potential risk areas and weaknesses that can be exploited by bank and non-bank competitors as well as criminal elements and terrorist organizations. What are these areas? Why are they there and how do we build better bridges within the industry? How and where do we draw the line between competition and cooperation?

2:15 am – 2:30 am BREAK
