ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.–PSCU has announced the full line-up for its Member Forum, set for April 2-4 at the JW Marriott Austin.
This year’s speakers will include two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback and five-time NFL MVP Peyton Manning, four-time undefeated world boxing champion Laila Ali and Academy Award-winning actress and activist Marlee Matlin, among others. Registration for Member Forum 2019 is now open here.
The theme for this year’s Member Forum is “Beyond Limits,” and there is no doubt this powerful message applies to Manning’s life. In addition to Manning and Ali, the latter of whom will address an Inclusion and Diversity Breakfast hosted by Susan Adams Women’s Network, Sankofa and PSCUnity,
other presenters will include:
- "A Conversation with Marlee Matlin: From Oscar to the West Wing and Beyond” will take listeners through the ups and downs she has faced throughout her life. “Though Matlin lost her hearing when she was only 18 months old, she never let her challenges deter her dreams,” PSCU said. “At 21, she became the youngest recipient of the Best Actress Oscar and only one of four actresses to receive the honor for her film debut. Along with a successful Hollywood career, Matlin has dedicated herself to raising awareness for many humanitarian causes, including diversity and LGBT rights. She is a staunch advocate for children and a champion for those struggling against domestic abuse and addiction. Matlin has also helped raise awareness for better hearing health for millions of deaf and hard of hearing children and adults in developing countries, in support of the Starkey Hearing Foundation.”
- John Foley, Former Lead Solo Pilot of the Blue Angels, will deliver a keynote titled, "The High Performance Climb.” “During his career in the Navy, Foley consistently performed in an extreme, high-stakes environment, flying at speeds of more than 500 miles per hour and in formations as close as 18 inches apart,” PSCU said. “Today, he inspires greatness while propelling others on their own journey toward higher performance as one of the most in-demand speakers in the country.”
- Mike Walsh has been a pioneer in the digital space since the 1990s, running successful start-up ventures as well as holding senior leadership positions in established media organizations. “A leading authority on consumer innovation and the digital future, Walsh will speak to conference attendees about machine intelligence and digital transformation in the current era of disruptive technological change,” PSCU said. “His best-selling books include ‘Futuretainment’ and ‘The Dictionary of Dangerous Ideas.’ He is currently the CEO of Tomorrow, a global consultancy on designing companies for the 21st century.”
- Finally, Bob Trunzo is president and CEO of CUNA Mutual Group. “CUNA Mutual Group is the leading provider of insurance and financial services to credit unions and their members, as well as a leader in the small business retirement plan services market. The company has $3.5 billion in annual revenue and more than 3,200 employees,” PSCU said.
“In addition to dynamic keynote speakers, senior leadership sessions and strategic insights on digital payments and other industry-leading topics, Member Forum will provide attendees with all the tools necessary to exceed member expectations and meet evolving consumer demands,” PSCU said.
Topics for breakout sessions will include member engagement, fraud and cyber security, Artificial Intelligence (AI), data and analytics, marketing, loyalty and more.
“We look forward to delivering a first-class, industry-leading event to celebrate all the possibilities PSCU makes possible for our owner credit unions across the country each and every day. We hope to see everyone in Austin!” said Dean Young, EVP, chief experience officer of PSCU.
