“Take massive, determined action” – Anthony Robbins

Are you ready to come to the exciting Urban Financial Services Coalition 2015 Annual Summit at the Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank June 4-6, 2015?

You will benefit from powerful networking opportunities and a multitude of rich industry sessions regarding business development, diversity, information technology, mark I youth leadership program, regulatory updates (AML, SARS,SEC, etc), volunteer community empowerment and the youth oratorical scholarship competition. The sectors covered will be Banking, Financial Planning, Insurance and more.

As an example, in the session entitled: “Leading a Financial Services Business unit for profits and effectiveness”:
-Every smart employee in a Financial Services Business unit (customer facing or not) is thinking about profits, sales and marketing.
According to “American Banker” 12% of global customers are thinking of switching companies at any
given time. In addition, customers are constantly being solicited to switch through Direct Marketing, Email
Marketing, Telemarketing, Web and Mobile Apps, Call Centers and Employee communication. A 5% increase in
customer retention can increase an organizations’ profit margin by a handsome 25 – 100 percent. What are some of the key strategies that employees and leaders can keep in mind to be profitable unit members?

*Some of the Summit presenters:
-Billy Dexter, Partner, Heidrick & Struggles, Executive Leadership Consulting.
-Kala Gibson, Senior Vice President & Business Banking National Sales Manager, Fifth Third Bank.
– Chad Tredway, Managing Director and Head of Commercial Lending Term Lending Eastern Region, JP Morgan Chase.
-Dr. Belinda White, Associate Professor and Management Program Director for School of Business Morehouse College.

…In addition, the tours and dining in Atlanta will be fun! Have you ever split an order of “Midnight Train” at “Gladys Knight’s Signature Chicken and Waffles” in Atlanta? “Yum!”
