Credit Union National Association (CUNA) announced today that Sekou Andrews, creator of Poetic Voice speaking, will provide the opening keynote at its 2023 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). Seamlessly blending inspirational speaking with spoken word poetry, Andrews will offer a creative perspective on embracing failure, encouraging unconventional thinking and being the kind of leader who inspires innovation from within.
“Sekou Andrews truly walks the innovation talk,” said Todd Spiczenski, CUNA Chief Products and Services Officer. “We are excited to kickstart our week in Washington with such a moving, memorable storyteller. I have no doubt that Sekou’s message will resonate with attendees long after the CUNA GAC.”
Andrews is the Founder/CEO of SekouWorld, Inc., and innovator of Poetic Voice, a cutting-edge speaking category that seamlessly fuses inspirational speaking with spoken word poetry. His accomplishments include two National Poetry Slam championships, two national poetry tours, two Independent Music Awards, three Helen Hayes Awards, the most “Just Plain Folks” music awards in history, the 2020 ABA Entrepreneur of the Year award, and the first Best Spoken Word Album Grammy nomination for a poet in 30 years.
