My publisher started shipping the first hard copies of my book ‘customer experience withouth borders: a practical guide to social media in financial services‘ back in June. Last week, I proudly announced the availability of the kindle version!
After a successful soft launch and a few hundreds copies of the book already sold all over the world in countries such as the UK, France, Spain, Switzerland, the US, Brazil, Japan, Singapore and Australia, my publisher organized our first official book launch party (London, 12 September 2011).
I had the opportunity to talk the crowd (30+ journalists, students and financial services professionals) through the story behind Visible-Banking.com and my book, and answer questions from an engaged audience.
I very much look forward to contributing to ‘Next Bank Asia‘ in April next year.
The event was very relaxed and informal. As I knew most people in the room personnally, and most of the participants were familiar with my work on Visible Banking and aware of my book, I kept my speech short.
I have to say I’ve been spoiled by Aman’s Breeze Team at Standard Chartered: Kathrine gave me a bag full of goodies. 😀
As promised, I will shoot a picture of me wearing the T-shirts as soon as I am back in London!
So if you couldn’t join us in London, Singapore and Sydney, this is what you missed. But I’m travelling quite a bit, and I am regularly invited to speak at conferences all over the world, so chances are I will come near you in the next few months. Please check Visible Banking on regular basis, I’m keen to connect with you in person and discuss the exciting topics of social media and digital engagement in financial services.
My publisher and I have already put together half-a-dozen sizable deals with financial institutions in the UK, France, Singapore and Australia. We would be delighted to put together a similar deal to distribute the book within your organization.
I invite you to check the pictures we shot during the event. As usual feel free to like and comment them, and add yours.
We at Visible Banking would be delighted to help you and your team better UNDERSTAND and LEVERAGE social media in a strategic yet pragmatic way. So please don’t hesitate to call me, send me an email or DM me (@Visible_Banking) to book a meeting and talk about twitter, facebook,crowdsourcing, customer reviews, social media & social commerce in banking, financial services and insurance.
