The Hearsay Summit is designed for FinServ and FinTech executives looking to share ideas and gain an edge with next-level insights and strategies. At this special curated gathering of business leaders, attendees will discuss breaking down organizational silos and empowering the high-tech, right-touch agents and advisors.

Additionally, the company will offer Marketing and Compliance Administration Certification designed for program leads and social administrators of Hearsay’s flagship Hearsay Social product. The new certification program enables users to get hands-on experience with some of the latest Hearsay functionality. Additionally, Day 1 will consist of role-based roundtable sessions tailored for marketing, sales/distribution, compliance, and IT professionals to discuss trends, best practices, and key success factors.
