Fiserv, a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, announced speaker and agenda details for its annual credit union client conference to be held Sep. 10-13 in Las Vegas. Speakers include the noted journalist, author and global thinker, Fareed Zakaria; Pranav Mistry, a visionary inventor who pushes the boundaries of technology and design; and a special guest speaker on Sep. 11 to recognize the significance of that day in U.S. history. Previously called Innovate, Fiserv Forum – Fall 2012 is the largest annual technology-focused event for credit unions, and is expected to attract more than 2,000 credit union and financial technology professionals.
Fiserv Forum is the “must attend” event for Fiserv credit union clients, who use the educational and strategy sessions to focus their business and technology goals. Strategic decision-making, growing credit union membership, expanding digital channels, managing risk and payment portfolio opportunities are among key areas that will be addressed. The conference will feature a 35,000 square-foot Technology Showcase, where clients can interact directly with the latest financial services solutions. Attendees will have many opportunities to network with their peers and exchange best practices for serving members. A preliminary agenda is available at http://bit.ly/forum_agenda.
“Fiserv Forum offers our clients the latest insights into business and technology strategies, in a collaborative environment where they can exchange ideas,” said Jeffery Yabuki, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fiserv, and the event’s opening speaker. “The content is designed to stimulate discussion toward a greater understanding of our respective roles in our industry and our communities.”
Fareed Zakaria, described by Esquire magazine as “the most influential foreign policy adviser of his generation,” will share insights on “The New Global Landscape” on Wednesday, Sep. 12. Dr. Zakaria is editor-at-large of TIME magazine, a weekly host for CNN and a regular columnist for The Washington Post.
Pranav Mistry, research assistant and Ph.D. candidate at the MIT Media Lab, will also speak, highlighting the tremendous pace of technology innovation that is changing our society.
