Elevate Your Personal Financial Coaching

About the Webinar

Helping credit union members and the community at large to develop better financial habits starts with education. But a linear approach doesn’t always advance your members to the point where they feel confident to utilize the wide range of the financial products your credit union offers. In addition, a linear approach often limits the audience you can reach, particularly among youth and young adults. 

In order for your education platform to be effective, you need to develop a multi-level strategy that educates, engages, and inspires action. This webinar teaches you how to combine professional online education with targeted financial coaching so you can reach more members in a more meaningful way. 

During this session you will learn:

  • How to blend professional education courses across a range of mediums, with one-on-one targeted financial coaching
  • How to use education to market through community outreach
  • Best practices to use when creating a financial education platform
