Representatives of PVKS Credit Union, headquartered in Kyiv, Ukraine, and WFCU discussed the specifics of their front office work and communications with members, and compared the effectiveness of different marketing and sales strategies. They also discussed a credit union digital journey, where Dundalk Credit Union presented the approaches and timelines of various digital tools implementation. Women staff members of PVKS also attended a separate session on women’s leadership conducted by their female colleagues from Dundalk.
