9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. “Communicating During a Crisis” Patrick Dix, VP-Strategic Alliances, SHAZAM
You’ve just had a critical incident at your business. Reporters are waiting outside with cameras. Are you ready? There’s a way to make sure you won’t be searching for answers when you find yourself in this position. The 24-hour news cycle means local news organizations are hungrier than ever for fresh content and credible experts. This session will make the case that developing relationships with local media and saying “yes” when they call for your help will pay off for your reputation, your business and your bottom line.
10:45 a.m.-11:45 a.m. “Security Considerations During a Pandemic” Mike Burke, Sr Robbery & Crisis Management Consultant, SHAZAM
Nothing is more important than the safety of your employees and customers. By identifying procedures, response tactics and the recovery process, you can be better prepared should a situation arise.
12: p.m.-1:00 p.m. Lunch - Sponsored by SHAZAM
1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m. “Payments 101” Patrick Dix, VP-Strategic Alliances, SHAZAM
The payments landscape continues to evolve, yet the basic understanding of how payments work is often overlooked. You shouldn’t be paying for your debit card program — it should be paying you. To take advantage of non-interest income community financial institutions must evaluate their payments program to receive the best interchange income. Learning how merchants influence interchange rates, opportunities for single and dual message, and the importance of gross and net interchange are just the first steps in developing your best payments program.
