Speaking at a TEDx conference has been on my wish list for a long time. When I saw that a local TEDx event—TEDxChilliwack—was being organized, I jumped at the chance to apply. I was fortunate to be selected and also to be able to present about my passion—financial education. Here's the recording.
Talk description: Millennials face financial pressures that will jeopardize and limit their economic opportunities. This, combined with a lack of financial aptitude and overconfidence in financial matters, can be a recipe for a grim financial future for the largest generation since the Baby Boomers. Engaging over-confident, over-stimulated young adults in financial education has become the mission of Chilliwack's Tim McAlpine.
Tim McAlpine is the President and Creative Director of Currency Marketing. He is best known for developing the Young & Free Marketing Program and the It's a Money Thing Financial Education Program that credit unions from around North America are using to connect with new young adult members. He is also the driving force behind CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec competition and a co-founder of the CU Water Cooler.
