  • 10:45 - 11:45 a.m. Total Compensation Plan Elements and Strategy

    Total compensation is a “hot topic” for executive leadership because it is a primary consideration for attracting and retaining high-performing employees at all levels within a bank. How executives are rewarded directly affects a bank’s ability to attract, retain and reward talent within leadership positions. It is critical that banks focus on a total compensation strategy to ensure alignment with bank, department and individual performance. This session focuses on how to strategically and effectively manage a total compensation plan and compensation “mix” to achieve bank goals and objectives while remaining responsive to the needs of employees. At the conclusion of this session, attendees will possess a working knowledge of total compensation plan elements, compensation strategies, and the importance of linking pay with performance.

  • 2 - 2:45 p.m. Reputation Risk and the Dynamics of Damage Control: What every banker must know about crisis, controversy and other public relations dilemmas

    A potentially damaging risk to a bank’s valuable good name is a public relations crisis, scandal or controversy. In this era of hyper-transparency and real-time media, even an isolated bad news event or situation can suddenly intensify with astonishing speed into a PR nightmare. This session will highlight effective preparedness and response strategies that can be used to mitigate or avoid reputation threats.
