WYCUP program participants heard from Paul Smith, bestselling author of Lead with a Story: A Guide to Crafting Business Narratives That Captivate, Convince, and Inspire, a book about storytelling as a leadership tool that has been published in six languages around the world. As a leadership trainer for international companies such as Hewlett Packard, Ford Motor Company and Procter & Gamble, Smith taught us how to use storytelling as a tool to communicate and persuade in the workplace.

Young professionals also heard from Grzegorz Bierecki, World Council Chairman and former Solidarity activist, who was jailed for his political activity under Communist rule in Poland. Bierecki has played a key role in the rebirth of Poland's credit unions which in the course of 15 years became the largest non-bank financial network in the country. Bierecki has led Poland's credit union system as president of NACSCU since 1992.
