Channeling their inner Eminem, CUNA Councils Executive Committee members Steve Stryker and Belinda Caillouet set the stage for Monday’s first “Speed Rounds” product pitch session with a live and videotaped adaptation of the song “One Shot.”
As the song goes, “You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow… this opportunity comes once in a lifetime.”
Five vendors appeared on stage in rapid succession, with each granted seven minutes to sell the more than 500 attendees of the joint CUNA Technology/Operations, Sales, and Service Council Conference on the merits of their product and company.
Stryker, chief operating officer for Scott CU in Edwardsville, Ill., is the second vice chair of the CUNA Operations, Sales & Service Council. Caillouet, chief operating officer/chief information officer for Spokane (Wash.) Teachers CU, is the CUNA Technology Council chair.
