Emerging Leaders Academy

We are pleased to offer the Texas Tech School of Banking Emerging Leaders Academy as a complementary program to the School of Banking. The academy is a series of 18 interactive videos covering topics that successful emerging leaders in banking depend on. Our goal is to help emerging leaders be aware of and develop critical skills that are required in today's rapidly changing and demanding banking environment.

We have partnered with Tim Tivis, principal of Pinnacle Training Group with over 30 years of bank leadership training experience and expertise, to develop the curriculum and videos. We are convinced that the nature of this material and training lends itself very well to an online approach, with you being able to watch the videos at your own pace over a two month period, including a brief role-play interaction via zoom with Tim Tivis. At $395 per person, we're confident that decision makers will view this as a very affordable and exceptional professional development opportunity.
