Episode Description

Today’s buzz: Payment challenges. Banks and corporations are facing an increasingly complex landscape in the payments arena and the associated integration. New types of payments and currency, new technology tools, new security threats and security techniques, and new challengers to traditional providers all contribute to the immense change. The world of payments is now driven by risk, cost, and the ability to reconcile. Players have just two choices: innovate or face greater opportunities to lose big. The experts speak. Tom Durkin, Bank of America Merrill Lynch: “Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning” (Bill Gates). Laurie McCulley, Treasury Strategies: “Older people sit down and ask, 'What is it?', but the boy asks, 'What can I do with it?’” (Steve Jobs). Leonard Schwartz, SAP: “Nothing like a little disaster for sorting things out” (Thomas in Blow-Up, 1966 film). Join us for Managing Financial Performance: New Payment Challenges and Innovation Options.
