This was by far the best format for business development that I have encountered. Pound for pound spent, my expectation is that this will easily surpass our other go to market activities. As a seasoned enterprise software professional, your event has proven the most straightforward way of quickly establishing creditability with senior decision makers thus accelerating our debate. Correspondingly, our (soon to be) new clients have their problem cycles dramatically reduced. It really is a win-win!

This was a very useful summit, with the advisory board setting the context for joint progression of the industry and what should be the focus, and the networking allowing the right level of collaboration to drive things forward.
Colin Renouf, Global Enterprise Architect, Travelex
The FST Summit provides a very effective way to cut through the noise and spend 1-1 time with clients and industry leaders in meaningful dialogue. This efficiency is needed in today's hectic business world.

In a matter of two days you can get coverage and develop a relationship that would normally take months just to get into the calendar.
Ronald Fons, Global Head of Financial Services Industries, Huawei
I think the FST Summit presents a great opportunity for vendors who are looking to establish great connections with qualified buyers in the technology-focused financial services vertical. I think itís a great opportunity for those connections to then accelerate a sales cycle and develop meaningful relationships from a marketing and a sales perspective that quite frankly is unmatched in the market.
Chris Pick, CMO, Apptio
Itís a very inspiring atmosphere in which you can have discussions with people from your industry. You have more contact with your peers than at other comparable summits.
Holger Messingfeld, Head of International IT Development & Support, Piraeus Bank
I thought the summit was very good. It was useful, interesting and the opportunity to network with peers and vendors has been very worthwhile.
Ken Aitken, Head of IT Architecture, Tesco Bank
Iím delighted by the way the FST Summit has been organised and certainly the subject matter, breakouts, workshops and meetings Iíve found to be quite invigorating and very enjoyable. I think the agenda and content of the meetings and keynotes have been first class.
Mark Diamond, CIO Business Services, RBS
