Hello dear readers!
As we reflect on the year during the onset of this holiday season, it’s clear that Akcelerant has undergone some significant, yet very positive, changes since the beginning of 2015! With our acquisition by Temenos, we’ve supplemented our knowledge of the American marketplace with industry experts from around the globe, consolidating a world of resources around a central strategy: supplying our customers with a wide range of expertise and services.
This has been on ongoing theme for 2015 – in my post earlier this year, “#TransformationTuesday: Akcelerant Talks Then and Now!”, I introduced some additional “Voices of Akcelerant Talks”. You may have recognized Leah Hamilton, Blair Rugh and Katherine Timon from their background in compliance, a topic constantly on the minds of consumers and providers alike. They now offer their knowledge of the financial services industry alongside Kelsey, Abby, myself and other subject matter experts.
Additionally, Akcelerant and Temenos just launched registration for their first ever combined conference in the United States – the 2016 Temenos Client Educational Conference! Historically, Akcelerant has hosted an annual conference that brings together first-class industry and product education with vendor and peer networking. With the acquisition of Akcelerant by Temenos, the event has expanded on the conference you know and love to include additional expertise and relationships.
But we aren’t done yet! In our efforts to continually align our global and U.S. strategies and provide the highest quality of expertise, we will continue to make exciting changes, including another #TransformationTuesday moment: Akcelerant Talks will get a makeover as Temenos Talks! It’s a new name, but still the same great thought leadership platform. To kick off Temenos Talks, we will host a webinar on the new flood rules with Leah Hamilton on December 1 – be on the lookout for more exciting news in 2016!
