Hi, I'm Curt and I love a good story. During my career in banking and as Founder of LoCo Think Tank, I have been blessed to hear thousands of inspiring and insightful business stories. I've observed that story is a powerful medium for learning. Much of the impact of our LoCo chapters is also from members sharing and learning in this way. We created The LoCo Experience to share this bounty of wisdom and experience for anyone to partake. I hope you listen and love it.
