Cirque du Soleil creation director Heward to headline ACUC
MADISON, Wis. (1/31/13)-- Lyn Heward, director of creation for Cirque du Soleil, will be a headline speaker at the  Credit Union National Association's  America's Credit Union Conference this summer in New York City.

"Lyn skillfully relates the wonder of Cirque performances to 'wow' results for credit unions," said Jill Tomalin, CUNA senior vice president association services.

CUNA's ACUC runs from June 30 to July 3 at the Hilton New York in New York City.

Heward will speak July 2. Her presentation and book, "The Spark: Igniting the Creative Fire that Lives Within Us All," draw on her experiences as former president and chief operating officer of Cirque's creative content division, where she helped bring to life Cirque masterworks. Heward's presentation takes audiences behind the stage to explore the nature and origins of creativity.

Heward joins The New York Times best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell and retired White House Military Officer Lt. Col. Robert Darling as featured speakers at ACUC. The conference also includes a slate of thought-leader breakout sessions ranging from leading in a multi-generational environment to assessing one's credit union in the new economy. 

Among the operational topics on the slate are: Generating non-interest income, the future of payments and effectively managing lending risk.
