Robert B. Tucker shows you and your team how to profit from today’s rapid changes.

With revolutionary changes impacting banks, credit unions, and insurance companies, missing important trends and technologies can be fatal. Futurist and innovation expert Robert B. Tucker inspires financial services leaders to master the art of thinking ahead of the curve. In the interactive and stimulating sessions he leads, Robert shows you and your team how to identify emerging trends, and how to use these changes as stepping stones rather than stumbling blocks to achieve asset growth, profitability, and market share. In recent presentations before banking groups, Robert has shared case examples from his study of how leading regional and community banks in the United States are leading the future by disrupting the disruptors. He demonstrates the power of adding value and uniqueness where it matters most — where the customer experiences it. Robert gets the creative juices flowing for differentiating your offerings in whole new ways. He demonstrates the thinking that leads to  “de-commoditizing” every step of the value chain, while discovering new revenue streams. So if you’re ready to stop worrying about innovation and start leading your organization to a brighter, better future, you’re ready for Robert Tucker to have a powerful impact on your organization.
