The Members Group (TMG) released an agenda last week for its 2014 TMG Executive Summit, which is scheduled to take place next month in Lake Tahoe, Calif.
The theme of this year’s summit, which will be held July 14-16, is “People. Passion. Purpose.”
On Monday, July 14, Olympic gold medalist John Naber will open the event with a presentation on the methods used by Olympic champions to beat their competition.
“This year, we’re focused on higher-level inspiration for executive leaders,” Georgann Smith, the vice president of marketing for TMG, said. “To win the hearts and minds of consumers, financial institutions must train their leaders to think like champions. It’s in that spirit that we are excited to announce our speakers, who have each excelled in the areas of igniting people, passion and purpose.”
On Tuesday, July 15, a panel on the future of payments will discuss future-focused technologies and developments in mobile banking and payments, as well as emerging methods of authentication, including EMV and tokenization.
Andrea Stritzke, the vice president of regulatory compliance for PolicyWorks, a sister company of TMG that helps credit unions comply with impending regulations, will also present on Tuesday, followed by Adam Carroll of National Financial Educators, who will discuss using human resources to break the barrier of mediocrity.
On Wednesday, July 16, Gary Steele will share his story as the first African-American to play varsity football at West Point, and Susan Mitchell and Brandi Stankovic of Mitchell Stankovic & Associates will share ideas to help small institutions like community banks and credit unions extend their legacies.
Ron Shelvin, an analyst with Aite Group, will also host a talk on creating value in the evolving payments environment. Doug Lipp, the former head of training for Disney University, will conclude the summit with a session focused on the inner workings of Disney, one of the world’s largest media conglomerates.
