As the financial services industry experiences a massive digital revolution, Blend is making it our top priority to keep up with (and even outpace) the momentum — and that goal translated into our most recent event. On May 18-20, we held our annual Forward summit, a virtual space where industry leaders and innovators gathered to hear from expert keynote speakers, discover Blend success stories, and participate in thought-provoking discussions about the continued digital transformation of lending and consumer banking.
The three days of the summit were focused on three different topics: mortgage banking, consumer banking, and Blend platform training. We covered a lot of ground in our sessions, from exploring a deep dive report with Aite on consumer demand for a new standard of homeownership to examining effective cross-selling strategies with Javelin Strategy & Research.
The Blend team showed up in force as well. We heard from Head of Blend Nima Ghamsari on personalized banking experiences and Head of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Ulysses Smith on expanding access to homeownership, among many other speakers and topics.
But the best news is that, even if you missed the summit, anyone can now access the Forward sessions for free. You can view all Forward sessions on-demand in our Forward video library.
Forward is for anyone looking to build their organization’s digital momentum
Among the many sessions and discussions we had at Forward, one theme and perspective was common: continuing and accelerating the digital transformation our industry experienced over the last year. How can we take advantage of that initial momentum and further optimize and innovate in alignment with consumer expectations?
If you only have enough time to check out a session or two in our on-demand library, we recommend watching Head of Blend Nima Ghamsari’s two keynote sessions.
For those interested in mortgage, check out his session on the end-to-end digital mortgage transformation imperative, where he details Blend’s vision for rising to meet the demands of increasingly rapid industry evolution.
Or if you’re on the consumer banking side of the house, you’ll enjoy hearing him share how we are building towards the personalization north star as part of Blend’s vision for a unified platform and personalized banking experiences.
Blend’s commitment to our partners doesn’t stop at Forward
Part of our commitment to the success of our partners and customers also means not confining the knowledge shared at Forward to three selective days, but making it available to anyone at any time. That’s why we’re excited to offer you this on-demand video library as a means to continue the conversation about digital momentum and the role Blend can play in accelerating progress.
As we look ahead to the future, we’ll keep building lending products and platforms that work hard for you — not just today, but for years to come.
