big.bright.minds. 2018

Be a big.bright.mind!

Filene's signature event – big.bright.minds. – is the culmination of all the best Filene has to offer and brings together a community of credit union leaders passionate about taking their credit unions forward.

Free for Filene members to attend, join peers and innovators from outside the credit union space to stay ahead of cutting-edge insights impacting cooperative finance. Get hands-on experience with big ideas fresh from real-world testing and walk away with actionable plans to help grow your business and challenge the way you think about consumer financial wellness.  

Our speaker line-up and agenda has now been posted – with plenty of research insights, experiential learning and Filene’s famous “merrymaking” activities, this is your big bright chance to nerd out and explore academic truth from trusted sources driving end-to-end innovation for credit unions. No one else does this like Filene does!

You’re invited to attend with your entire executive team, as content will focus on business strategy and development, marketing, talent attraction, consumer thinking, and technology – but space is limited so register today and join us in San Diego, December 6-7.
