Sherpa Technologies announces agenda, speakers for complimentary, virtual 2020 SherpaFUSE Conference
COLUMBUS, OH (October 29, 2020) — Sherpa Technologies, a wholly-owned CUSO of Corporate One FCU, recently announced that SherpaFUSE 2020, its annual conference focused on fintech, user experience, strategy and enablement, will be an interactive, complimentary, half-day event for credit union professionals across the country on November 17.
“The industry’s use of digital solutions has accelerated exponentially – by years in some cases – due to the current pandemic situation,” said Melissa Ashley, CEO/President of Corporate One and Chairwoman of the board of Sherpa Technologies. “Sherpa’s mission is to help credit unions navigate their digital transformation journeys and effectively compete in a digital-driven financial marketplace. Key to this mission is providing education and thought leadership on the current digital financial landscape and how credit unions can successfully take advantage of fintech opportunities for the benefit of their members.”
“SherpaFUSE 2020 promises to be a content-rich event, offering critical insights on current fintech and user experience trends, as well as important considerations for credit unions developing personalized digital experiences,” said Keith Riddle, Sherpa’s CEO/President. “And, given how the pandemic has fast-tracked the need to digitize, we are excited to offer SherpaFUSE as a complimentary opportunity for credit union professionals to learn from industry experts, engage with insightful panels, and connect with fellow credit union peers.”
In addition to interactive panel discussions with fellow credit union colleagues, featured speakers include the following:
- Dave DeFazio, Partner, StrategyCorps. In his session titled “King of the Hill – Mobile App Edition,” Dave will discuss how the secret to improving credit unions’ future deposit growth lies in understanding the changing role of banking products in the financial lives of today’s consumers. Dave will also dive into ongoing research that explains these trends.
- Scott Harkey, Chief Strategy Officer & Head of Payments, Levvel. Scott’s session, titled “The New Normal for Financial Services,” will explore the key themes shaping member behavior and offer best practices on what organizations can do to embrace the “new normal” given the dramatic changes within the last six months.
- Mark Sievewright, Founder & CEO, Sievewright & Associates. In his session titled “Emerging Digital Economy,” Mark will review digital transformation trends conveyed during strategic planning engagements and share his perspective on the emergence of an expansive digital economy that will impact credit unions and their members.
