You work for a bank in digital, innovation or marketing? I hope you are now on your way to Paris to attend the long awaited return of EFMA’s Online Financial Services conference: Online Banking: the e-volution!
In my opinion, this event is the best event of its kind in EMEA. This is essentially due to the quality of both the speaker line up and the audience which are almost totally made of banking professionals with a good experience of digital and social. Everybody is keen to share and learn from their peers.
I look forward to catching up with so many friends and fellow digital innovation enthusiasts at the event.
As you would imagine, my presentation will focus on social media in financial services. But over the last four years I’ve constantly improved the format and delivery of my speaking engagements.
This is going to be my best presentation yet, so I hope you will be with us on Friday 13 May at 11:15am!
I will cover the following topics: Voice Of the Customer (VOC), Customer-Generated-Content (CGC) vs User-Generated-Content (UGC), multichannel, ROI, customer retention and acquisition, loyalty and brand ambassadors.
As usual, I plan to cover the event (pictures and comments) and record as many inspirational video interviews with the speakers as possible.

Social Media Awards
I’m delighted to be also part of the jury which short listed the four nominees to the social media awards delivered by the EFMA the second day of the event.
The Award will be presented based on one or several of the following criteria, and with a specific angle considering the financial crisis:
* Innovative character of the Product
* Distribution and promotion of the Product
* Ability of the Product to create new opportunities for the financial institution
Please find below more info on the four nominees and their initiatives. I used the description submitted by the banks themselves.
