Since our events don’t have sponsors, we don’t have moderators droning on about how awesome they are and asking softball questions. It makes it a lot more interesting.
We’ve got 27 media outlets attending The Future of Fintech and all the moderators are folks from media. I’m glad to announce a bunch of new additions to our roster including:
Wall Street Journal – Peter Rudegeair
Bloomberg – Drew Armstrong
Thomson Reuters – Anna Irrera
Yahoo Finance – Andy Serwer
Wall Street Journal – AnnaMaria Andriotis
Make sure you or your PR firm is there getting the word out about what you are doing. You won’t find a better collection of financial services journalists in one place than The Future of Fintech.

Kill ’em with line charts
If I’m ever in a meeting and need to look smart, here’s what I do:
Get up suddenly and say nothing
Go to the whiteboard and draw an X and Y axis (quickly and with confidence)
At the 0,0 coordinate, write a term and then somewhere else, write another unrelated term
Then connect the 2 terms with a line or a curve
And then proclaim “This is where our industry is going”
Sit back down and say nothing
