RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA (November 7, 2018) — CO-OP Financial Services is announcing two new headliners as keynote speakers for the THINK 19 conference, brand guru Omar Johnson and Amy Purdy, Paralympic snowboarding champion and New York Times best-selling author, who embody the idea that opportunity never rests.

“Our theme for THINK 19 is ‘Opportunity Never Rests,’ which encapsulates both a sense of urgency and a belief in the possibilities, two sentiments we believe will drive the credit union industry forward,” said Samantha Paxson, Chief Experience Officer for CO-OP. “THINK 19 will connect our credit union partners with some of the world’s brightest, boldest thinkers, while at the same time giving them practical tips for growth and transformation. Attendees will return home with strategies they can implement immediately.”

Purdy and Johnson Added to THINK 19 Line-up

Building on the theme and the idea that changes at any level can lead to transformation, attendees will hear from a diverse group of speakers, which now include Amy Purdy and marketing executive Omar Johnson.

Purdy, a three-time Paralympic medalist is the most decorated adaptive snowboarder in U.S. history. She credits her creativity, positive outlook and what she refers to as “The Power of Intent” for opening countless doors in her life including, acting and modeling projects, partnering with Oprah Winfrey on a national speaking tour, appearing on CBS’s “The Amazing Race” and ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” and being featured in a Super Bowl commercial. Purdy is co-founder of Adaptive Action Sports, a non-profit organization that helps those with permanent physical disabilities get involved in action sports. She is the author of “On My Own Two Feet,” published in 10 different languages around the world.

Johnson, former CMO at Beats by Dre, and former VP Marketing at Apple, has an extensive marketing and branding career that includes work with brands like Nike, Campbell Soup and Coca-Cola. Johnson was named a “Brand Genius” by Adweek in 2013, and Business Insider named him one of the “Most Innovative CMOs” in 2016. At Beats Electronics – acquired by Apple in 2014 for $3 billion, the largest acquisition in Apple’s history – Johnson was responsible for brand development, advertising, retail experience, entertainment/sports marketing and digital marketing for all global brand marketing and advertising efforts.

The two new keynotes will join the previous announced author/entrepreneur Seth Godin and Chef Jose Andres on the THINK 19 main stage, with more speakers to be announced in the coming months.

Now through November 27, credit unions can take advantage of CO-OP’s fall special, with registration available at $1,299. This figure is 35 percent off the full registration fee of $1,999. THINK 19 will be held May 6-9, 2019, at the Lowes Miami Beach Hotel. Online registration is available at co-opthink.org/events.

Now in its 12th year, THINK is a year-round platform for credit union collaboration, innovation and evolution. Visit co-opthink.org to access the wide variety of learning opportunities, including THINK Review magazine, THINK blog, videos from THINK conferences and a library of leading business and innovation book reviews.
