The Remarkable Credit Union – How to Make Financial Education Relevant and Useful

“The real opportunity I think that credit unions have is to one, connect with families and two, start early.”

– John Lanza

What role should youth financial education play in the strategy of the 21st century credit union? Chief Mammal John Lanza joins PixelSpoke CEO Cameron Madill on The Remarkable Credit Union podcast to talk about why financial education should start early; how to make it fun, concrete and experiential; and in what sense money might actually be able to buy happiness. 

Lanza and Madill’s conversation centers on the following topics:

  • Making financial education simple, concrete and experiential from a young age
  • Deriving the greatest happiness from experiences instead of things and the implications doing so has for credit unions
  • Focusing on schools as a channel to open up relationships with parents
