This is the best opportunity to get a pulse of exactly what’s happening the IT Banker’s world.

This conference is on my MUST ATTEND list!

The more we are exposed to this information and understand it, the better we will be able to help educate our users and customers.

It was good to hear feedback from other bankers about Safe Systems as well as to make connections and contacts.
