My final thoughts on Finovate.

FinovateI just posted my final thoughts on the presenters at Finovate in a post titled My Finovate Wrap-Up. In it, I try to pull out those products and services that resonated with me, as someone who is passionate about social media and credit unions.

And some photos from the event below…

A great time at Finovate.

I had a great time today at Finovate. I gotta hand it to Jim – he ran a good show. The format of giving each presenter only 7 minutes, no powerpoint, no bullets, just a real live demo of their product, was genius.

Maybe it was the curating, knowing that each presenter was invited to participate because they had something to offer made the difference, but every conversation I had was so amazingly useful. I don’t think I have ever been to a conference where I got so many useful business cards.

I’d be curious to know what others thought, but I had a great time.

Now, my vacation begins…

Off to Finovate.

FinovateI’m off to New York to attend Finovate on Tuesday. I’m excited to see first-hand demos of all of these products and services that are evolving the landscape of the financial services industry. Many of them I’ve read about, but seeing them first hand is a real opportunity to understand them on a deeper level.

I’ll be live blogging the whole thing on NetBanker, so check in throughout the day on Tuesday and I’ll be updating as often as I can.

And if you’re gonna be there, please say hi.
