Hear from our panel of thinkers, authors and consultants to the financial services industry about why innovation is critical during a time when many in the financial industry are struggling. Our panelists serve as judges of the 2009 Barlow Research Monarch Innovation Awards, where they rated products, features and customer service enhancements based on the following criteria: uniqueness, stickiness, defendability, value and ease of use.

Specifically, we will:

- Discuss the importance of innovation during a time of change
- Talk about what is innovative in today's marketplace
- Announce the recipients of the 2009 Monarch Innovation Awards
- Examine the characteristics of the winning submissions
- Discuss how these products/features/customer service enhancements can be improved upon
