Symposium Speaker Spotlight
Leading up to our 2018 Symposium this fall, we highlight speakers each month.
Diana Henriques
Join us at this year's Symposium to hear from Diana Henriques , a financial journalist, author, and contributing writer for The New York Times.

When Bernard Madoff was arrested in 2008 for running the largest Ponzi scheme in history, his case showed us that much of what we thought we knew about this form of fraud was wrong. Stereotypes from the 1920s, when Charles Ponzi was arrested in Boston, are woefully out of date the Ponzi scheme of the Madoff era has mutated into a creature Mr. Ponzi would scarcely recognize. But one thing has not changed: the way that "trusted criminals" use their sterling reputations to take advantage of vulnerable individuals and organizations.

With examples from crime cases studied over her 30-year career, Henriques will identify what we should have learned from the Madoff scandal, but haven’t – and she will help to rectify that!
Doug Lennick
At the Symposium this October, Think2Perform CEO and Founder Doug Lennick will explore ways that you can positively impact clients' financial, physical, and emotional well-being.

When people think about financial planning, they recognize that achieving financial security will contribute to the quality of their lives. However, rarely do consumers or financial professionals fully understand the critical connections between financial, physical, and emotional well-being. Financial, physical, and emotional well-being is a virtuous circle: positively impact one aspect, and you’ll likely improve the others.

In this session, attendees will learn unique concepts that will help them broaden their roles to coach clients in developing goals and plans aimed not only at financial health, but that also address other important life areas.
