The Opportunity to Share My Passion at TEDx!

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.

I'll See You This Spring, Right?

It's been nearly four months since my last conference and I am starting to get the shakes! Actually, it's been awesome to have an extended period without travel. All things must come to an end though, as Spring is in the air and so is the busy travel season.

    The Last Thing We Need Is Another Credit Union Conference

    Over the past five years, I have had the pleasure of speaking at more than 40 credit union conferences in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Jamaica. It’s been a humbling and rewarding experience to share my stories to receptive audiences at state, national and international events. During this time, I’ve gained a lot of perspective on what makes an event memorable and worthwhile.

    Jamming in Wisconsin

    ​I made my maiden voyage to Wisconsin last week. Known as the Credit Union Mecca, Madison is home to CUNA, CUNA Mutual, WOCCU, CUES and the Filene Research. Matt Davis gave me the grand tour while I was there. It was a pretty cool trip.

    Shaking and Jamming in Colorado

    Five years ago this week, Larissa Walkiw and I presented at the 2008 CUES Execu/Summit in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Fast forward to 2013 and I'm back for another go. This time in Snowmass Village, Colorado which is just down the road from Aspen. 

    I just got back from a great trip. I attended four very different conferences in four days all in my timezone! An IT governance course in Vancouver, Filene i3 in San Francisco, FinovateSpring in San Francisco and the National Cooperative Grocers Association Marketing Matters in Portland.
