A simple truth: being a bank leader today demands more time, more attention and more knowledge than ever before. I’m lucky to engage with many exceptional bankers from around the country and am continually impressed with the appetite these executives and board members have for information and insight about our increasingly complex industry.
While I’m proud of the online, in-person and on-site work of the Bank Director team, I thought to highlight a series of easy-to-access 25-minute videos we produced for banks that have a relationship with us. As you will see in this short overview, we cover important topics such as the role of the board, risk management, key audit, compensation and governance issues and advice on growing the bank.
These videos naturally align with a one and a half day event we will host at the Hermitage Hotel (pictured above) in our company’s hometown of Nashville, TN next month. Our Bank Board Training Forum provides directors with cutting-edge preparation for the issues and challenges facing them in today’s ever competitive, highly regulated and rapidly evolving banking and financial services industry. While just one of seven events we host throughout the year, I’m excited to move my attention from our biggest conference — Acquire or Be Acquired — to our newest.
