10:00 am - 11:00 am Built for Legacy: 3 Keys to Sustainable Team Excellence Pete Smith, SmithImpact (Salons A- F)
The impact a leader can have on the members of the team goes well beyond the walls of the bank. To be a banking professional of significance, it requires that you balance both personnel and production. Sustainable team excellence begins before an employee joins the organization. It requires that the banking leader be at the forefront of cultivating organization, team and individual identity. As change agents, banking professionals need to address the seemingly insignificant activities, the ones most easily ignored, yet often create the most damaging consequences. Finally, it requires that the bank leaders become masters of performance improvement, recognizing that what drives engagement and productivity is usually found in pursuing those activities which people are least likely to pursue.

11:00 am - 11:15 am Visit Exhibit Hall (Salons A - F & Foyer)

11:15 am - 12:15 pm Marketplace Lending Marty Mitchell, ProBank Austin (Salons A - F)
The discussion surrounding non-traditional lenders (P2P and MPLs) certainly hit a high during 2016. The OCC announced they will issue charters to Fintech companies and the FDIC has issued regulatory guidance for their institutions. With all this activity over the past three years many question still remain. Are these lenders regulated or under regulated? Should a bank consider partnering with an MPL? What does such a partnership look like and what are the risks? This session will share our hands-on experience assisting our bank (and non-bank) clients as they navigate through the regulatory impacts of such relationships and partnerships.

12:15 pm - 1:15 pm Lunch (Bluegrass Pavilion)

1:30 pm - 2:30 pm Moving at the Speed of Digital: Next Generation Banking Jackson Hataway, Ph. D., Extreme Arts & Sciences (Salons A - F)
Financial institutions can no longer purely rely on brick-and-mortar to connect with and engage consumers – they have to insert themselves into a world that is increasingly dominated by digital screens and constant digital connectivity. The online and offline worlds are blending together in a way that is altering how consumers select products and services, determine service quality, share their experiences and make purchases. For banks, this disruption has resulted in an industry filled with new competitors – some of whom have never before been in the financial landscape. Big Data, social and mobile aren’t just buzzwords – they’re key elements of building digital financial institutions that are prepared to meet the demands of consumers with greater expectations of “free” financial services delivered in seamless, intuitive and secure forms. In this enlightening and energetic presentation, Dr. Hataway will dive deeply into the digital trends driving the financial industry and the strategies that winning financial institutions will need to rely upon to remain relevant in the next decade and beyond. Using state-of-the-art examples from the industry and from work with high-tech clients like Microsoft and Adobe, he will demonstrate how innovation is creating real opportunity for banks to capture consumers and grow service relationships in new and powerful ways.

2:30 pm - 2:45 pm Visit Exhibit Hall (Salons A - F & Foyer)

2:45 pm - 3:45 pm Cybersecurity for the Rest of Us: Surviving and Thriving in Today’s Threat Landscape Wes Spencer, FNB Bank Inc. (Salons A - F)

No longer is Cybersecurity a discussion topic for the IT team alone. In today’s interconnected world, cybersecurity is a critical issue for every employee of the bank, including senior management and the boards that lead them. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to understand today’s threat landscape at a high, non-technical level. In this session, we will explore the cybercriminal underground and discover the cyber-attack vectors common to community banks. We will discuss the top three needs every community bank IT team requires for a strong cybersecurity posture. Finally, we’ll explore how community banks are participating and leading the way in cyber defense with threat intelligence sharing and collaboration.

10:00 am - 11:00 am  One Step Ahead: A Bank’s Conservative Approach to Radical Disruption Bret Anderson, NetGain Technologies (Salons A - F)
Community bank executives want to lead their banks to the cutting edge—not the bleeding edge. To stay one step ahead of the competition when technology evolves so rapidly, though, can be overwhelming. Bret Anderson has a decade of experience working with bank leaders who privately admit most of technology is over their heads. He knows the questions to ask, knows the experts who can make it all work, and has created a three-part plan for bankers to make it happen in their own financial institutions. Banks enacting this plan are seen as industry leaders with a competitive advantage.
