It’s hard to believe that 2019 is almost behind us and another Purposeful Banker podcast season is in the books. We started the Purposeful Banker podcast back in 2015 to fill a need in the podcasting world – create a podcast specifically dedicated to commercial bankers.
Four seasons later, the Purposeful Banker has welcomed guests such as: Jill Castilla, President & CEO at Citizens Bank of Edmond, Al Dominick, CEO at Bank Director, JP Nicols, Managing Director of the FinTech Forge, and Jim Marous, Co-Publisher of The Financial Brand. Of course, there have been many, many more guests throughout the years, all offering loads of helpful information to make your job a bit easier.
Below is a list of our top five podcasts of 2019. We hope you take some time to listen to them and the many others we recorded this year.
You can check out all our podcasts on our resource page, as well as iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher. A new podcast episode goes live every other week. We absolutely love receiving comments and feedback. Please leave a rating on these platforms and let us know how we’re doing!
Okay, now … as I always say, on to the show! Enjoy!
