3:00 PM

This session is appropriate for Marketers, Branch Managers and CEOs as well. The credit union needs to work as team in their approach to delivering member service.

Part 1 - How to Have an Authentic Brand
A brand isn’t what you say you are - it’s what you actually do – everyday - in every single member interaction.

This session will focus on identifying your existing brand and determining if it is aligned with your member needs, market expectations and credit union’s personality. When you brand is aligned, you will have happier employees, more satisfied members and overall better retention and share of wallet.

● Learn the 4 pillars of authenticity
● Walk through the steps to review, define or create your brand
● Discuss how to have Disney-style service in your branch

Part 2 – Brand Your Department with ROI: Speaking the CEO’s Language
In your credit union, the marketing department is either the “arts and crafts” division or a valuable, strategic entity. How can you brand your department as the vital business-driver that it is?

This session will help your department speak directly to your internal target audience: the CEO and CFO.

● See new ways to look at ROI
● Ensure that all of the right CU players are onboard
● Learn 5 formulas for ROI and when to use them
● Discuss how to best use your results
● Receive valuable tools to take back to your CU
