An invitation and special discount for Finance 2.0

The Finance 2.0 SummitI am pleased to invite you to the upcoming Finance 2.0 Summit: January 26th & 27th in New York City.

When we started planning the Finance 2.0 Summit in New York a few months ago, who could have guessed where our industry would go. I believe that the market turmoil of the last few weeks means that the Summit is perfectly scheduled for January 26-27 at the Harvard Club. The faculty features the financial industry’s superstars in social media and is focused on providing real, actionable tools and strategies that you can use to reach out to your customers in a more effective, meaningful way.

In addition to this personal invitation to hear me speak, I am also able to offer a speaker discount of 15%. Please use priority code FMP168 when registering to ensure your discount. To register, you can visit Finance 2.0 Summit or contact Sarah Dunnam at 704-889-1290 or sdunnam (at) frallc (dot) com

I look forward to seeing you in New York City!

More about me, if you don’t mind.

Communicating Social Responsibility ConferenceSeptember and October were a whirlwind of speaking engagements. I enjoyed them all tremendously, but I’m glad those two months are behind me. I recently received my scores for some of my speaking engagements.

For the International Association of Business Communicators’ Communicating Social Responsibility Conference conference my session received an average rating of 4.5 out of 5. The rating for the overall conference was 4.2 so I’m pleased to have surpassed the average. It was a great conference, and nice to speak to a group of people focusing on CSR in their business.

Net.Finance EASTNet.Finance East took place this past October in New York. It was a great conference, full of great presentations and great participants asking insightful questions. At this conference my average rating on a scale of 1-5 was 4.76 for content and 4.81 for presentation. Those may be my highest marks ever (including high school).

It’s extremely rewarding to be able to speak at these conferences, share my knowledge, learn a whole lot from the other presenters and attendees and get to bring that knowledge back to Vancity. To be this well received is truly icing on the cake.

Net.Finance West2009 will have a lot less speaking engagements for me. Time to focus on my real work at Vancity. I love my job and want to spend more time doing that and not travelling around. I’ll be at a few, including The Finance 2.0 Summit taking place in New York January 26-27, 2009 and I’ll be back for another run at the main Net.Finance West taking place April 20-23, 2009 in Las Vegas.

See you there.
