#281: Getting the inside scoop on today's EMV, payments, and tokenization topics from CSCU's Bob Hackney...
I had the opportunity to visit the CSCU Conference in Tampa, FL, a couple weeks ago and got to learn all that I wanted to learn about EMV, payments, and tokenization -- all hot topics in the FI world right now. I also had the pleasure of seeing former Blue Angels pilot John Foley and former NFL Head Coach Tony Dungy speak, as well. Quite a treat.
Following the conference, I had a chance to speak with CSCU President Bob Hackney about the conference and more importantly the EMV, payments, and tokenization issues that grab our industry headlines each week. Some great insight from Bob on these subjects -- along with many other items of card interest to credit unions. Check it out!

We're back for part 2 of our ride along with Best Innovation Group's Founder John Best, as we dive deeper into our mobile payments discussion -- even visiting a company that has learned to do it right Starbucks.

We also discuss a new, industry technology conference that John plans to host in the spring of 2015 that will put a few new wrinkles in the event arena. Listen in to this episode for all the details -- and much more!
