Adapting your marketing formula to industry shifts is paramount for success in a very competitve market.
Central 1 is the credit union to the credit unions in BC and Ontario, and steward of the Credit Unions of BC brand.

In 2009 a sobering reality hit and they had to shift their focus to start connecting with young adults…their survival depended on this!
Register now and join us on February 27 to find out how their creative team built a bold and successful advertising program based on the same cooperative principles of credit unions and created a new market for their services.
