This is a Breakout Session

Technology has made communication across time and space easier than ever before, yet loneliness is at an all-time high. There is also growing concern about artificial intelligence taking away jobs. Fortunately, success is within our control.

Drawing on his popular relationship-building parable, “The Connector’s Way,” and experience working with credit union professionals, Patrick Galvin offers thought-provoking examples and practical strategies to nurture the transformative power of genuine connections. These are the connections that lead to personal growth and the success of your credit union.

Audience Takeaways:

  • Learn effective strategies to cultivate a robust support system, enhancing both personal fulfillment and professional success.
  • Gain insights into fostering collaborative partnerships that contribute to your growth and achievements.
  • Acquire actionable ideas that can be implemented to build strong relationships, ultimately leading to a higher level of fulfillment in both your personal and professional life.
