Credit Bureaus – What They Know About You and What You Can Change

Credit Bureaus

Credit bureaus, also called credit reporting agencies (CRAs), are companies that collect and maintain consumer credit information. They then resell it to other businesses in the form of a consumer’s credit report.

There are three major credit agencies in the United States: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. There are other smaller, specialized agencies as well. When creditors and lenders check your credit, they’ll very likely do so with one of the major CRAs. These three agencies retain information on more than 200 million Americans.

Join us on November 13 to learn:

  • Who governs the credit reporting agencies
  • What do they do and not do
  • The Big 3 and how to see your reports
  • Disputing information on your reports
  • Fraud Alerts and Security Freezes

Placing a fraud alert works in much the same way, but it only stays in effect for 90 days. An alert is always free, but you might have to pay to place a credit freeze in some states. Dave will share briefly how his company can help make this protection available 365 days a year.

Eyeball to Eyeball
Eyeball to Eyeball: How Good Managers Address Issues Constructively

with guest presenter
Christine Silver, SHRM-CP

In her keynote, “Eyeball to Eyeball” Christine reveals the conversations we have in our heads and how to make sense of them. She will help you understand why so many people avoid speaking up in difficult situations. Then she makes the scary people-stuff easier to work with through her straightforward and irreverent approach to the topic.

After hearing Christine you’ll feel prepared to do the things many won’t do – give feedback that helps, solve people problems and misunderstandings, and resolve conflict, without anyone being poked in the eye.

  • You’ll learn easy-to-use templates for speaking up well in charged situations
  • You’ll take away super-simple listening techniques so people know you’re really paying attention, not just waiting to talk
  • You’ll learn how problems solving skills can be applied to people issues so you find a fix not a fight
  • You’ll receive simple tools to resolve conflicts without psychological game playing!

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Before founding her speaking and coaching business in 2005, Christine Silver, SHRM-CP, practiced Human Resources management for twelve years. Over the past decade, she has trained and coached over two thousand leaders in leadership practices, communicating constructively, implementing performance management practices, and solving people issues. Christine has a Bachelors degree from San Jose State University, a certificate of Human Resources Management from University of California, Santa Cruz, and she completed coach training and leadership development with the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) of San Rafael, California. Christine was trained by the Conflict Resolution Center of Santa Cruz and has facilitated positive resolution between individuals in organizations.
