    Would most look forward to the Switch: How to Change Things
    When Change is Hard by Dan Heath session

  2. Jana Mearns

    I can’t wait for Dan Pink’s session on motivation. I’m excited to hear how to bring out the best in myself and my co workers. I am also really looking forward to ALL the Discovery Break Sessions.

  3. Ah, what I wouldn’t give to enjoy all those big thought sessions. So many great speakers lined up, with fantastic topics. We could all use a little inspiration these days, I think.

  4. Alyssa Sandore

    I love meeting the exhibitors and learning about new products to help credit unions grow and become more productive. I also look forward to networking and meeting new people in the credit union industry.

  5. Dan Pink’s Motivation session! I could always use new tips for motivating myself. I find that inspiring!

  6. Brandon McAdams

    Doug Hall looks very interesting. CUs need dynamic innovation. Too often we are stuck looking at why something won’t work, rather than what we can gain. Hopefully, he can help spark all of our imaginations.

  7. OMG I would LOVE to see Jeanne Bliss and Dan Heath! I am currently reading both of those books and would love to hear them expound upon the ideas and insights shared in their respective books.

  8. Sara Dyer

    I’m excited to see CUNA partnering with another thought leader this year in their conference, and offering CUNA Discovery sessions as part of ACUC.

  9. Heidi knudson

    I can NOT get enough credit union inspiration…. I think I was born a CUDE… Without the letters!

  10. The 10 reasons for the conference are very compelling. I also tend to think that innovation in regards to the CU industry can also be about keeping the good ole’ grassroots movement going. We should focus on the 7 principles and simplyfing the member experience. Technology and innovation need to translate into timely and convenient for our members.

    Dan pink and Doug hall for sure! Can’t wait for some cu motivation at it’s best!
