This A-political, non-partisan, entertaining yet serious presentation will feature President Trump as the lead negotiator against Core & IT legacy suppliers such as Fiserv, FIS and Jack Henry. 

Hear from @RealDonaldTrump along with some of his political rivals and friends as they join together in helping bankers avoid #FakeDeals, #FakeIncentives and #BadTerms so they may obtain a fair, balanced and reciprocal trade agreement against any Core, IT or Fintech Supplier now or in the future.

During this presentation, you will learn:

  • Why Core IT Suppliers' contracts are so one-sided and over-priced
  • How these vendors unfairly benefit as #SilentShareholders in every merger
  • What a real Service Level Agreement looks like and how to avoid #FakeSLAs
  • Where to access market intelligence and pricing data before you next renewal

*Please take our pre-event survey to help us customize this presentation to best fit your situation.
