Chris Ferris on Why P.O.W.E.R. is more than a program – it’s a movement

As communities all over the U.S. begin to reopen, it is time to get back to business. Adjusting to new conditions, seizing opportunities and strengthening connections is necessary for your business to survive and thrive. Being a dedicated resource for New Orleans’ entrepreneurial-minded women in times like this is one of the reasons why P.O.W.E.R. is more than a program - it’s a movement.
In this episode of the P.O.W.E.R. Plug podcast, Host Mary Foley, speaks again with an advocate of the P.O.W.E.R program and proponent of women-owned businesses in our community, Chris Ferris. Chris is the President and CEO of Fidelity Bank. In his time with Fidelity, he has proactively redesigned the client experience by delivering a consultative approach by identifying client’s needs with a focus on simple, easy, and fast banking services that provide value.

Listen in as Chris reflects on the impact and inspiration of his grandmother who addressed challenges with grace and dignity when they arose in her own business.
