One of the hallmarks of our THINK conference is out of the box, outside the industry thinking. But at THINK 14, we’re also turning up the volume on the credit union voice – your voice – with a group of forward-thinking credit union leaders we’re calling THINK Starters.
This year’s THINK Starters are already playing an advisory role at CO-OP as members of the CO-OP Technology Committee and our Operations Advisory Committee. They come from diverse backgrounds and credit unions. And during the conference they’ll be asking questions, raising concerns, floating ideas and sharing their experiences in THINK It Out discussions and throughout the conference.
THINK has always been about the confluence of fresh ideas and insights with the real-world challenges facing the credit union movement. In past conferences we’ve swapped stories with Zappos founder Tony Hsieh and skateboarding icon Tony Hawk, breakthrough thinkers Sir Ken Robinson and Margaret Heffernan, political rising star Cory Booker and musical legend Jeff Baxter. At THINK 14, the discussion will range from Cirque de Soleil to Facebook, from branding to consumer experience to business model to talent and leadership – all as applied to your credit union and to you.
CO-OP will also be following the THINK Starters throughout the year, to see how the inspiration they find at THINK 14 plays out when they return to work. Stay tuned!
