From the CEO

'Twas the run-up to Christmas, and all through IT,
Banks and insurers, wondrous to see,
Worked long and hard in pursuit of their vision,
And hoped that their efforts would find recognition.
There's no time to waste, in holiday haste.
But we hoped some verse would suit your taste.

Your sprint toward year-end is now in high gear.
So it's helpful to have some holiday cheer.
We need time to catch our breath, and reflect,
Before we determine the course we'll select.

As we form our plan for twenty-thirteen,
We're confident that our insight is keen.
And to show that we do mean what we say,
You're invited to Innovation & Insight Day.

Model Bank presentations! Model Insurer too!
And some cross-practice, just for you.
Innovative content, and ideas we'll float
Did we mention we'll have an exciting keynote?
Networking too, a chance to meet,
Peers in the industry you'll get to greet.

And this year a chance to challenge your wit.
We all want to innovate, but how to define it?
Send us your definition. We'll share the best,
And crown one the winner of this contest.

Meanwhile, I ask, one important task,
Take a break, and in holidays do bask.
I suggest mulled cider, your phone put away,
A toast to your health, and some family days.

With apologies to Clement Clarke Moore, author of The Night Before Christmas, and holiday best wishes,

Craig Weber
