2018 AC&E Speaker Previews

How to Achieve the Impossible!

Billy Riggs has been called “The Dr. Phil of Magic” and “a psychologist masquerading as a comedian and magician.” The comedic motivational speaker earned the highest award of Certified Speaking Professional at the National Speakers Association in 2002, and was voted one of America’s Top Five Most Entertaining Speakers in a 2014 nationwide poll of conference attendees.

Riggs’ highly skilled speaking abilities moves audiences to action with his message of hope and inspiration. For more than 20 years, he has been speaking to people, companies and organizations, aiming to change lives, improve attitudes, turbocharge sales and inspire exceptional service.


On Thursday, June 7, during the MCUL/CUSG 2018 Annual Convention & Exposition’s (AC&E) Conference Education Sessions, Riggs will be giving a presentation called “How to Achieve the Impossible!” Riggs believes that extraordinary success is the result of extraordinary leadership. Attendees will understand what core beliefs are held by all remarkably successful leaders and learn how to shatter the illusions that keep us back.

Riggs uses a mix of magic, humor and practicality to help participants leave with a new sense of motivation.

Ready or Not, It's Showtime!

Bill Stainton is a multiple Emmy Award-winning TV producer, writer and performer, as well as an author, business humorist and an internationally recognized Beatles expert. He blends the business smarts he learned from 20 years in corporate management with the showbiz sparks he garnered from working with people like Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres and Bill Nye the Science Guy to create entertaining and enlightening presentations enjoyed by audiences around the world.


As the executive producer of Seattle’s legendary comedy TV show “Almost Live!”, Stainton led a talented and highly creative team to unparalleled success: a No. 1 rating for 10 straight years and more than 100 Emmy Awards (29 of which went to Stainton). At the same time, he also owned his own corporate training company, authoring nine programs in subjects ranging from office politics to customer service and team motivation. He’s been quoted in the Wall Street Journal and Forbes, and is a regular columnist for Seattle Business magazine.

Stainton will be following Riggs during the AC&E’s Conference Education Sessions on June 7, presenting his speech “Ready or Not, It’s Showtime! Leading High-Performance Teams in a High-Pressure World.” Life is not a dress rehearsal; neither is business. How would a credit union be different if everyone stopped making excuses and started producing better results in each area of their lives? Not “later” or “someday,” but now.


When it’s showtime, all that matters is results. And in the credit union business, as well as in life, every day is showtime. Join Stainton’s session to learn how to clarify a vision, manage each day and identify the five people who need to be on everyone’s team.
