Matt Davis and I were on CUbroadcast this week to talk to Mike Lawson about the upcoming Disruption '17 by CU Water Cooler conference happening in Madison, Wisconsin on June 6-7.
Trevor (not his real name) is a 31-year-old med school graduate with over $500,000 in student loans. He just moved home with his Mom in San Diego while he tries to find a residency to further his medical training. But, just like half of the med school grads in the United States this year, he's been unable to find a hospital to take him on.
This was the big question posed by CO-OP Financial Services' Chief Marketing Officer Samantha Paxson during her CO-OP THINK 16 kick-off talk.

The 6th annual CU Water Cooler Symposium held in Kansas City on October 1 and 2 has come to a close. Each year, we proclaim it to be the best yet and this year was no exception.

That's a wrap. The 5th annual CU Water Cooler Symposium has come to a close and, by all accounts, it was the best yet (once again).
Matt Davis and I had a great conversation about this year's CU Water Cooler Symposium with Mike Lawson from CUbroadcast.
It's been a little over a week since I returned from the 2014 COOP THINK Conference in New Orleans. One statement keeps ringing in my ears and will stick with me going into the future...
