Are you tired of kissing frogs?

Your ability to successfully innovate involves a lot more than closing your eyes and hoping for the best. Successful innovations are generally the result of carefully orchestrated leadership and, while every organization is different, certain elements can be seen as common in the implementation process. But where do financial services innovators meet to discuss what has worked for them and what has not?  Building on the success of our Innovation Roundtables held in San Francisco, Singapore,and New York City, we are announcing our fourth Roundtable in Chicago.

This exclusive, invitation-only event will involve senior leaders from banking and insurance firms. This four-hour interactive session is a peer-to-peer discussion between innovation leaders, facilitated by Celent analysts and supplemented by Celent research. Additionally, Mick Simonelli, previously the Chief Innovation Officer at USAA, will discuss his experiences implementing multiple innovative initiatives in a Fortune 50 insurance and banking operation. Participants will have the opportunity to shape the agenda before they attend, ensuring that the topics will be central to current challenges. They will be able to exchange views with senior level peers on how to increase innovation capability within financial services organizations. The topics will focus on practical implementation and direct experience. Areas that will be covered in the discussion include:

  • Spotting emerging business and social trends and determining how financial services should change in response
  • Building and sustaining momentum for innovation within organizations
  • Developing successful techniques to prototype, test, and fail/succeed fast
  • Engaging younger employees in identifying and implementing innovative business models

The Roundtable will be followed by a networking cocktail hour to allow participants to continue their discussions and to connect on a more informal level with industry peers.


Admission is free, and exclusively for executives from financial institutions that have a focus on innovation. Pre-registration is required.
