 Join us for a fascinating case study of how Simple, a Portland-based startup, is taking on the trillion dollar banking industry in a very untraditional way – digitally, without ANY physical locations.

Presenting for Simple will be:

Rachel Giuliani, Community Manager (@Simplify)

Scott Edwards, Marketing Manager  (@scottedwards)

Moderator:  Terry St. Marie (@starbucker), President of SMC PDX

Questions We’ll Address:

  1.    Background- What is Simple?
  2.    What does a “digital institution” look and feel like, using the example of a bank?
  3.    How can social media work as a digital disruptor?
  4.   While it’s still all about relationships and expectations, is the customer still always right in this new digital world? 
  5.   How can this case study benefit YOU?

After the presentation, Terry will ask some follow-up questions, and then he’ll engage the audience for a wrap-up Q & A with Rachel & Scott.

Come for this free event and learn how to apply these innovative practices in your own business, agency or consultancy.
