  • The breakout session: "All Things Mobile: Alerts, Payments, Remote Deposit & Security." More than half of all U.S. mobile consumers now have smartphones, and 100 million U.S. consumers are expected to use mobile technology by 2014. But not all mobile devices are created equal when it comes to banking. Forty-eight percent (48%) of tablet owners conduct mobile banking compared with only 28% of all mobile consumers, and the number of tablet-using adults will increase 20% annually over the next five years. Which devices are most popular, and which will have the biggest impact on mobile banking? How does adoption vary by institution size? What do Google's acquisition of Motorola and Visa's announcement of a fraud liability shift mean for mobile payments? Which set of mobile banking alerts can preempt the most frequent and costly service inquiries? Which can generate fee revenue? Your credit union has unprecedented opportunities to extend service at a low cost, generate non-interest income and revolutionize how you interact with members in real-time to deepen your relationships and earning potential. Wetherington shows you how.


  • A general session, "Innovating from the Future, Backwards: The Art & Science of Strategic Foresight in Financial Services." Why are 11% of banked consumers planning to switch financial institutions in the next 12 months and who are these people? What happens to PC-based online banking in a mobile-centric world of smartphones and tablets? What will be the impact of mobile payments and mobile commerce? Do community banks have unique advantages and opportunities in the world of post-Durbin payments? Wetherington provides a forecast and summary of the industry’s best research on upcoming developments in online, mobile, payments and branches, and shares the strategic and tactical positioning that will best serve financial institutions over the next 18 months.


Wetherington is among the most acclaimed technology speakers in the U.S., having given more than 300 presentations for state and national trade groups that focus on opportunities and challenges related to e-banking, payments and more. His comedic style has earned rave reviews.


He serves as a technology faculty chair for several regional schools of banking and finance, is accredited through the national Automated Clearinghouse Association, and is renowned for the cutting-edge guidance that has driven bottom line results for the nation's largest and most well-recognized financial players.
