We all have hectic schedules, project planning, and meetings to attend—and in the midst of it all we have to take the time to continue listening and learning. 

We would like to encourage you to take some time to recharge your batteries at REACH 2015, the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues’ Annual Meeting and Convention from Nov. 4–6 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in gorgeous Palm Desert, CA.

This year we will step outside of the box with disruptive speakers and sessions that will challenge the status quo and make you rethink what’s possible.

Here is a snapshot of our speaker lineup:

Innovation and Disruption
Pablos Holman
Inventor, hacker, and resident futurist at Intellectual Ventures Lab
Did you know in less than a minute you can hack into an EMV chip? Pablos provides a unique view into breaking and building new technologies, such as the Hackerbot, a WiFi seeking robot that can view a password in seconds. With Pablos the possibilities are endless. Imagine a world without malaria, hurricanes, or global warming—Pablos and his team are working on the solutions now.

Tribal Leadership
Dave Logan
Author, co-founder and senior partner of CultureSync
It’s time to build a culture of excellence! Every organization and company is a tribe, groups of 20-150 people that form naturally in which everyone knows everyone else. Logan provides insight on how to upgrade organizations by using proven principles from a 10-year study of 24,000 people that maps the five stages of corporate culture and the unique leverage points to nudge a group forward. The result is industry-leading productivity, innovation, collaboration, and job satisfaction.

Brock Pierce
Venture capitalist and serial entrepreneur
In just one month the blockchain processes 900,000 transactions representing $2 billion monthly—a 275 percent growth in just one year. Pierce explains this new kind of ledger that is able to scale with economic complexity providing increasing security, automation, and accuracy at lower risk and cost.

Business Disruption
Ken Rutkowski
Host, co-founder and president at Business Rockstars
Imagine if you could network with the top Fortune 500 CEOs and innovators like Oprah and Mark Cuban. A founder of a 1,600 elite member networking group, Rutkowski gives a glimpse into what’s on the business horizon, what’s hidden from the masses, and how your credit union can benefit.

Peer-to-Peer Lending
Ron Suber
President, Prosper Marketplace
Discover why a former credit union CEO is now the president of the second largest Peer-to-Peer (P2P) lending organization in the U.S. In the wake of low consumer confidence in banks P2P lenders saw an opportunity. Today P2P lending has grown another 128 percent generating $6.6 billion in loans with Prosper closing in on the #1 spot. Suber provides insights on why a third of the consumer credit marketplace is flocking to them and investors are reaping the benefits.

The Corporate Athlete
Stacey Sullivan
Johnson & Johnson, Human Performance Institute
Human energy is the most critical resource a business has. Sullivan will show you a multi-disciplinary energy management technology and demonstrate what happens when leaders adopt this training model.


The New Sharing Economy: People as Business
April Rinne
Advisor, Sharing Economy, World Economic Forum & Young Global Leader
There are separate regulations for individuals and businesses. But what happens when this distinction is blurred? Rinne will explore what businesses, policymakers, and entrepreneurs need to be thinking about, and how best to prepare for what’s ahead.

After your mind has thoroughly been blown with innovative insights, disrupt your busy schedule with any of the resort amenities or local dining and shopping!

REACH 2015 will leave you with ready-to-implement tactics and ideas for your credit union for long-term sustainable change. Don’t miss out.
