I've been saving this episode for a Friday/weekend posting because it's always fun to end the week on a high note -- and this interview delivers in that very department. Yes, it's the annual GonzoBanker Awards that came out late last year, which is loaded with hilarious, yet spot on, tongue-in-cheek takes of 2015's financial services practices.
We invited Cornerstone Advisors' Terence Roche and Sam Kilmer on the program to discuss a few choice winners. Here are the ones we addressed:
New Challenge for Criminals Award: Idea Bank's roaming fleet of mobile ATMs
"Thank You Sir, May I Have Another?" Award: FFIEC's Cyber Security Self-Assessment Tool
Conversion of the Year (for CUs) Award: Desert Schools to Corelation's KeyStone core
Monty Python "I'm Not Dead Yet" Award: MCX
Game Changer of the Year Award: GonzoBanker introduces GonzoPay!
Y2K Redux Award: EMV hysteria
Topic Nobody is Writing About Award: Millennials
Enjoy this entertaining chat with Terence and Sam and check out the rest of the awards here ... 2015 GonzoBanker Awards. We look forward to what's in store for 2016, already.
