Registration Open for Strategic Summit

by Catalyst | Jun 24, 2024

Catalyst is expanding its longstanding Economic & Payments Forum to include a broader range of topics and insights. The Strategic Summit, to be held October 7-9, is also moving to a new destination – the beautiful La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, TX.

“Credit unions have been loyal patrons of the Economic & Payments Forum for decades,” said Catalyst’s President/CEO Bruce Fox. “In crafting the Strategic Summit,summit logo with icon we kept the best of what Forum had to offer, while delivering even more value to busy credit union professionals.”

Headlining the inaugural Strategic Summit is Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran, who will share insights from her extraordinary career. Despite inauspicious beginnings, Corcoran’s path culminated in her status as a real estate mogul – and television star. 

In addition to Corcoran, the Strategic Summit will feature lively keynotes from:

  • Jeff Havens, Business Growth Expert and comedian, will infuse his delivery of business insights with plenty of humor. Havens has built a multi-million-dollar training company that reaches more than 500,000 learners annually.
  • Ford Saeks has worked with start-ups, Fortune 500 companies, and everything in between to generate massive growth. An entrepreneur, published author and patent-holder, Saeks will speak about the power of artificial intelligence.

And that’s only the beginning. The Strategic Summit welcomes TruStage Chief Economist Steven Rick, Fortune’s Senior Editor-at-Large Geoff Colvin, Catalyst’s own leading experts, and much more.
