World Council of Credit Unions is excited to launch a new monthly podcast that will provide the international credit union community with an in-depth look at some of the interesting and important stories it has to tell, particularly in the areas of international advocacy, international projects, education and networking, and digital transformation.
The Global Credit Union Podcast will also be telling stories about the work credit unions across the world are doing on behalf of their members.
“There is only so much information, only so much storytelling you can provide in a press release or social media post. The Global Credit Union Podcast provides us a with a format to give the full scope, detail and impact of the services we provide to our members and the international credit union movement as a whole,” said Greg Neumann, World Council Director of Communications and host of the new podcast.
The first episode features a compelling conversation with outgoing World Council President and CEO Brian Branch, who details the memories and moments that shaped his 30-plus years with the organization. Branch discusses a range of topics, including helping credit unions overcome civil conflicts in Central America and the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, establishing World Council’s Model Credit Union Building (MCUB) methodology and International Advocacy programs, and helping credit unions get through the current COVID-19 pandemic.
