Leadership In Turbulent Times
World-renowned presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin reflects on more than 150 years of U.S. history to put into context our most recent unprecedented presidency – a fast-paced, unpredictable and at times impulsive Administration. By sharing her deep understanding of the ambition, resolution and resilience of some of our nation’s most revered presidents, Goodwin explains how past setbacks and triumphs shed light on the cultural, economic and political transformations that define today’s turbulent times. With a goal of educating and entertaining audiences, Goodwin brings to life some of our most successful presidents to provide insight for today’s leaders, and to demonstrate that however fractured our modern political culture has become, our democracy is also resilient and has survived—even thrived—through more troubling times in the past.

*This session is only available during the live broadcast date & time and will not be available for on-demand viewing.

Identifying Pockets of Opportunity In Uncertain Times
2020 has brought disruption and turbulence to business models and industries. Because small businesses generally respond to changes in economic conditions more rapidly than larger businesses, the Equifax Small Business Indices serve as a leading indicator of macroeconomic and industry trends. According to the latest data, the Small Business Lending Index (SBLI) increased 9% from 131.9 in August 2020 to 143.9 in September 2020. The Small Business Delinquency Index (SBDI) decreased 16 bps from 1.93% in August 2020 to 1.77% in September 2020. This is the fourth monthly decrease following three months of increases following the start of the pandemic. As we close out 2020 and look forward to emerging from the current pandemic, Equifax SVP, Financial Services Leader Barry Ripes, Senior Index Developer Elaine Makdah and Senior Statistical Analyst Sarah Briscoe will review the latest economic trends, the small business lending and delinquency activity and offer their insights on the implications for the commercial credit markets during these uncertain times.

The COVID Workplace - How to Engage Employees Through Uncertainty
Looking at stress as a foundation, Trisha Zulick, will help leaders understand how to lead with empathy to drive employee engagement in this COVID environment while effectively running the business.

COVID took structure away, making people insecure. As a leader, it is important to understand how employees cope with uncertainty in order to lead with empathy. If people don’t think their leaders care, they will not bring their best selves to work. Trisha would connect this concept to the bottom line—how do you keep market share and employees because you understand people.

By attending this session you will:
  • Gain an understanding of how stress related to uncertainty may impact productivity
  • Review strategies for engaging remote and in person workers
  • Identify how this theory may apply to/ impact your customers

Managing Risk From End to End Through Intelligence & Efficiency for CRE Lending Process (Demo)
From origination to final disposition, the commercial mortgage life cycle presents various types of risk presented by borrowing structure, underlying property financials and valuation methods, market conditions, approval process, and large amounts and sources of real estate data that must be monitored. Compounding the challenge is a heavy reliance on Excel and Word, or a system not designed for CRE … causing errors, inefficiency, and therefore risk. Only the use of an enterprise platform with a data model built for the complexities of CRE, that allows straight-thru processing from lead to final disposition, talks to all other systems, and allows for embedded intelligence throughout can mitigate these inherent risks. With its capability of handling CRE, C&I, SBA and all commercial credits from origination to portfolio management, North Shore serves as the single system of record for all commercial credits/investments and global cash flows.

While workouts are a first step toward ensuring your collateral is properly secured, lien-related risk management is not about just filing a lien. It is an ongoing series of proactive steps that monitor for changes in the borrower’s circumstances that could affect the lien and taking action to fix any and all gaps in perfection

The presentation will also address:
1) Criteria lenders should use to determine which borrowers should get a workout.
2) Best practices for secure lien portfolio management.

Modernizing Internal Audit
Businesses are changing as they embrace the innovation economy. Well documented advances in new technologies and the drive for innovation and digital transformation are upending industries and increasingly are challenging internal audit functions to remain relevant.

Change is being driven by advances in technology and the use of data, work for home strategies and the broader economy in which knowledge, entrepreneurship, innovation, technology and collaboration are fueling growth.  Internal audit not only must respond to these changes, but also must be prepared to assess if the business is undertaking its innovation and transformation initiatives in the best possible manner. In order to accomplish this, internal audit must innovate itself.

In this session, we’ll discuss strategies and methods that Internal Audit organizations are implementing to adapt, evolve, and transform to provide continued value.

Proactive Credit Risk Management During COVID-19
As the financial industry is working through an unprecedented economic crisis, the value of Credit Risk’s third line of defense has never been higher. Effective and timely action by an institution’s Credit Risk Team can help identify increasing vulnerabilities including non-performing assets,  charge-offs, TDR’s, and potential provision and capital shortfalls. Credit review has typically been a backward-looking exercise, however, the current COVID-19 environment requires banks to perform a  future-looking assessment of the bank’s loan portfolios including its emerging risk profile, with less reliance on historical performance. Learn how Bank United, a $30+ billion bank headquartered in Miami Lakes Florida, leveraged their loan review team for an “all hands-on deck” Pandemic credit risk review of the bank’s portfolio. Learn useful best practices including work at home review support and automation tools to add efficiency and speed to the process.

Join Peter Cherpack, Partner and EVP, and Lou Dunham, Senior Vice President & Senior Director, both of Ardmore Banking Advisors and Walter Shields – Executive Vice President and Director of Credit Review for BankUnited, N.A.– for a case study and review of best practices in loan review during these extraordinary times.

Secure Work Anywhere: Supporting the New Normal from Corporate Policies to Security Practices
The global pandemic and impacts stemming from COVID-19 shook up operations across the globe. Both, security and cultural impacts stemming from the pandemic continue to emerge for businesses. As organizations have navigated their way through return to office scenarios, there are a number of new employee expectations and employer considerations to think through. Rather than only focusing on the point-in-time circumstances of “secure work-from-home” operations, many organizations are considering a proactive “secure-work-anywhere” policy. In this webinar, we’ll highlight what aspects of secure work anywhere have been successfully in place prior to regional waves of quarantine, supporting productivity through employee mental and physical health considerations, privacy considerations for employees' personal environments, empowering your plan with innovative solutions and technology.

KEY TAKEAWAYS: 
  • What disciplines and business structure have already been operating “secure work anywhere”? 
  • How can the extent of your internal governance policies can help or inhibit your employees ability to execute their job effectively? 
  • Considerations to balance security-based monitoring and employee privacy rights within personal environments 
  • Technology and innovative strategies to put your “secure-work-anywhere” plans in motion.

This presentation will help bankers to: (i) understand how to develop relevant and coherent scenarios for different use cases that take into account the various fiscal stimulus programs; (ii) perform scenario-based assessment of the loans in forbearance for selecting the action(s) expected to minimize losses; (iii) assess and benchmark the adequacy of the loss (Incurred Loss and CECL) and capital reserves. By the end of the presentation RMA attendees will have learned to better prepare the return of their banks to the next normal by using integrated scenarios for business planning, provisioning and capital planning.
