New at THINK 18: Power Sprints speed up your strategic process

We’re all in a race to excellence as we navigate the rapids of digital transformation and a fast-changing competitive landscape. At THINK 18, credit union leaders will find inspiration, get their bearings and develop a roadmap for the future in four immersive days, May 7 to 10, in Chandler, Arizona. New at THINK 18: Power Sprints This year’s conference will feature our signature lineup of thought-provoking keynotes – including presentations by Beth Comstock, former vice chair of GE; fintech commentator and bestselling author Chris Skinner; Wired editor-in-chief Nicholas Thompson and record-shattering athlete Michael Phelps. But THINK 18 will also feature a new conference experience: Power Sprints. In daily breakout sessions that offer a fast mix of lab sessions, chat rooms, foundational presentations, Q&A and panel discussions, attendees will dive into subjects that connect big transformative ideas with real-life strategies that go right to work. Our Power Sprints are organized under three important topics: Credit Union (R)evolution: Do the historic changes facing financial services today call for evolutionary change – or full-on revolution? A stellar lineup of industry and CO-OP thought leaders make their best cases. Example breakout sessions:
  • 7 Strategies for Digital Transformation
  • The Future of Banking Operations
  • Open Banking: A New Model for Innovation
Advancing Credit Unions Through AI: Artificial intelligence is transforming the way we gather and analyze data, fight fraud and build member relationships. Find out why the time to write your AI strategy is now. Example breakout sessions:
  • Artificial Intelligence Gets Real: AI, Machine Learning and Credit Unions
  • Driven by Data: Making Your Analytics Strategy Fly
  • 5 Ways to Make Data Your Best Transformation Asset
The Accelerating Payment Challenge: It’s not just that payments themselves are faster. The rapid pace of innovation – leading to embedded and invisible payments – demands that credit unions stay ahead of the game. Example breakout sessions:
  • Will Blockchain Revolutionize Your Credit Union
  • The Future of Payments
  • Nothing to Fear: Security as a Driver of Growth
Recharge Yourself in a Beautiful Setting The energizing lineup of speakers and action-packed Power Sprints are reason enough to join us at THINK 18.
