Music and Fashion with an Entrepreneurial Passion: Register at www.co-opthink.org
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (March 4, 2013) - The THINK 13 Conference is filling out its roster of featured speakers with an entrepreneurial flourish by adding Daymond John and Daria Musk, two disrupters of business as usual from the worlds of fashion and music.
"The THINK conference this year is about how credit unions can 'Disrupt Business as Usual' - to creatively disrupt an organization from within, before it gets disrupted from without," said Stan Hollen, President/CEO of CO-OP Financial Services. "Daymond John and Daria Musk complete a line-up of seven featured speakers from outside our industry, who significantly impacted their fields, and who will be sharing lessons-learned that we can apply in the credit union movement."
Daymond John is CEO and Founder of FUBU, a global lifestyle brand, and a pioneer in the fashion industry with over $6 billion in product sales. He is an award-winning entrepreneur, including Brandweek Marketer of the Year. John has authored two best-selling books: "Display of Power" and "The Brand Within." He is also in his fourth season as a castmember of the entrepreneurial business show, "Shark Tank," which airs on ABC on Fridays at 9 p.m.
Before the summer of 2011, Daria Musk was just a young singer/songwriter with big dreams and an entrepreneurial streak to match. An invitation to visit Google+ sparked the idea to perform a live concert via Google+'s video chat feature, "Hangouts." Musk went from early-adopter to global music sensation overnight. Now Daria is continuing to push the boundaries of music, tech and social media, and she's doing it the grass-roots way with the support of her self-coined "G+niuses," the global community gathering around her music.
THINK 13 is being held Mon., April 29-Thurs., May 2, 2013 at the Swissotel in Chicago. The $679 registration is open at www.co-opthink.org. Registrants may also select from four charity activities ranging from $100-$150, with proceeds going to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
