October 2016

In the month of Thanksgiving it is natural to think about all the things that are good in our lives.  I am thankful for my health, a good career, great coworkers and a loving and supportive family.

Our Spotlight  today talks about something we all know a lot about, the challenges of working in volunteer organizations. In News from the Profession  we look at the terrifying possibility of another credit crisis.

Our Institute and Chapter exist to grow and promote Credit education in Manitoba and we are thankful for the opportunity to do just that!

When the Strategy is to Talk Strategy

I love listening to very smart people talking. TED talks, great speeches , brilliant co-workers. There is something about how really smart people talk - they are clear, funny, and poignant. In so many ways, smart people embody the right way to do things: have a dream, come up with a plan, and "do" the plan.
