Every day your money is at risk along with your identity and more. With the rash of data breaches we've seen over the past few months we thought it might be a good time to catch you and your business up with some cyber-security tips with Jodi Selby of Banker's Trust. Here are several solid ideas for you to implement...now.
Back for a visit is our friend Adrienne Baughman from FORBS Export Services. We chat about the economy in China, why you should know more about it and how the strong dollar and lower commodity prices are impacting exports. We also chat about the yet to be funded Export Import Bank and why that's important even for small business.
The Small Business Administration has changed since the 1990's both in technology and in focus. We asked Jayne Armstrong, State Director for Iowa to visit with us about the tasks and opportunities provided by the "New and Improved" SBA. Here is that conversation:
You can say what you want about how "big is better" but, in reality, being connected wins the day. Betty Ridout is from the Windsor Heights location of Bankers Trust. We talked about being truly "local", what it means to be invested in a community and how that investment is truly the capital of a community. Enjoy!
There has been so much misinformation about the Export/Import Bank we decided to reach out to our friends at Forbs Export Services to see if we couldn't find a thread that helps Iowa businesses. We did and here is that conversation with Adrienne Baughman & Stacy Timperley from Forbs.
Who you are and where you come from has an impact on your business. That is clearly true when it comes to the diverse and multi-cultural efforts of Bankers Trust, a near century old bank, that is anything but...closed. Suku Radia is the President/CEO of Bankers Trust. We talked about inclusion, building community and how that helps build a solid brand.
Not long ago we reached out to Banker's Trust, the "home-town bank" of Des Moines and Tim Kintner the Executive Vice President for Consumer, Private and Regional Banking Markets. Tim recently accepted that position moving from Cedar Rapids and we wanted to know more about the banking business...from a person who has spent a career in the business. From lending to banking in Phoenix lot's of ground to cover.
The most recent "report card" on the banks in Iowa says things here are pretty healthy and they are ready to loan money again. We asked the President/CEO of the Iowa Bankers Association, John Sorensen to drop by the studio and talk a bit about banking. We think you'll find this interesting and valuable.
