Community banking can flourish in the face of fintech and global
competition with a fresh approach to marketing and strategy!

John Wausph, Chief Innovation Officer
(Attendees will receive a copy of Mr. Wausph’s book –BANKRUPTION)

This session will separate futurist thinking from today’s realities, and dispels common myths surrounding the U.S. community banking model in order to shed light on the real challenges facing community banking institutions. It follows with clear solutions, proven strategies, and insight from experts across banking and fintech. All arguments are backed by massive amounts of data, and the companion website provides presentation-ready visualizations to help you kickstart change within your team.

In the U.S. and around the globe, fintech companies and non-banks alike are creating streams of banking services that are interesting, elegant, and refreshing—and they’re winning the hearts and minds of early adopters. Not a one-size-fits-all approach, this book offers many different tactics for community banks to compete and flourish in the new world.
