Interactive Session – Creative Disruption for Credit Unions: Harnessing the Power of Liquid Expectations to Inspire Your Brand

Speaker: Brian Elkins – Executive Director, Financial Services

If there is one defining feature of today’s consumers, it’s that their expectations are no longer confined to experiences within a particular industry but are shaped by a broader set of interactions and experiences that they have across their life with a diverse cross-section of brands and industries. In this interactive session, Brian Elkins shared how seemingly unrelated brands are disrupting brand experience and marketing, what these shifts mean for financial services, and workshopped with the audience on how to put these examples and the concept of liquid expectations to work to inspire organizations. He encouraged financial brands to get out of the financial service digital sameness by sourcing inspiration from unconventional places to create brand experiences and marketing that unlocks member growth, satisfaction, and loyalty.

Navigating uncertainty in Financial Services

The financial industry is no stranger to crisis. During these challenging times, brand can be a source of light as opposed to amplifying the chaos and discomfort many are experiencing.
