Recommended Podcast: Discover 'The Best Thing'

Headshot of Antonio Neves

Speaker and author Antonio Neves will emcee the upcoming 2021 CUNA Governmental Affaris Conference, but he's also the host of "The Best Thing" podcast

The idea behind the podcast is that sometimes peoples' most impactful moments don't always appear on a resume or LinkedIn profile. “Sometimes the best things that happen to people to improve their life and to help them make great decisions are those things you would never hear about unless you are willing to deeply ask and get curious,” says Neves. Listen to the podcast to hear how this idea can impact the future of credit unions.
