MADISON, Wis. (7/22/10)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has announced keynote speakers for its Experience Learning Live! (ELL) Oct. 21-23 in San Diego. The event will focus on ways to maximize the ability to boost credit unions’ staff energy, energize volunteers and increase member satisfaction. “Current economic challenges have impacted almost every level of how credit unions are conducting business, from how to deal with members to how to take advantage of the opportunities that exist in the market,” CUNA said. “Employees are feeling deflated and de-motivated in a time when they need to be more productive than ever.” ELL is for credit union professionals responsible for staff performance, development, retention and recruiting. Speakers include:
* Kirk Weisler, author of “The Dog Poop Initiative,” who will present “Creating an Outrageously Cool Culture Where Engagement is High, Connections are Strong, Change is Awesome and People are Not Just Feeling Good, They’re Feeling the LOVE.” * Paul Wesselmann, creator of The Ripples Project, who will present “Encouraging Inclusion: Leadership & the Art of Nurturing Diversity.” * Lou Russell, CEO of Russell Martin & Associates, who will present “I’m O.K., You’re Insane: The People Side of Project Management.” * Andy Janning, assistant vice president of training and quality service for FORUM CU, Indianapolis, who will present “You did it! How ELL Can Get You Fired...or Fired Up!”
Each participant will receive a six-month trial subscription to Credit Union Magazine
