Never before have businesses felt such excruciating pressure to compete. The go-go days of the 1990s turned into the go-sideways days of the 2000s. What’s next? While enjoying super low interest rates and riding a roller coaster stock market, firms have struggled to raise prices, even when their costs go up. China poses a threat but also an opportunity for new sales. Loyal customers seem ready to jump to a competitor. How can your company or industry survive and thrive? Can the Fed keep the economy recovering in the Janet Yellen era? Will Congress try yet another “stimulus”? Todd Buchholz, who led the White House Energy Strategy, will help you figure out whether OPEC and Russia can tighten energy supplies again or whether a revolution in natural gas will reinvigorate U.S. factories. Learn how the “scissors economy” opens up new business and investment opportunities. Today might be the very best—or the very worst—time to finance a loan. By “connecting the dots” of the world economy, Todd teaches how to anticipate the new trends that open up fresh opportunities for manufacturing, service and technology companies.

Andrew Card (Exclusively WSB)

In the global marketplace, new business or investment opportunities arise every day. But determining whether or not to do business or invest in developing nations, or nations emerging from recent instances of strife, can be difficult without the insight or experience to properly formulate the decision. Drawing on his experience in the White House, Andy Card was responsible for understanding the infrastructure and political culture of nations around the globe. He provides a broad overview of the current geopolitical strengths and risks of doing business or investing around the world including Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Latin America.

As a mother of two teens, Jean Chatzky knows what parents want—kids who grow up to earn their own money and live independently (i.e., not on the family couch)! After conducting a dozen focus groups with middle-schoolers around the country for her upcoming Not Your Parents’ Money book (September 2010), she also knows what skills kids need in order to get there. In this fun and lively presentation, Chatzky shows how teaching responsibility, setting limits and living by financial example can all combine to put your kids on the path to personal financial success.

Can you really start from nothing and become truly secure financially? In this fascinating and interactive keynote, Jean Chatzky asks the questions: What’s the difference between you and Warren Buffett? Between you and your boss? Or between you and your successful neighbor? What do the financially comfortable have that you don’t? And how do you get it? Based on her most recent book that includes groundbreaking research on the self-made wealthy, Jean reveals the traits and habits of those who have moved from the lowest economic strata to the highest. Then she helps audiences take a look at where they are now and offers simple strategies for helping them get to where they want to go. In this optimistic and empowering presentation, she helps people see that they themselves have the power to determine their own financial future and find freedom in even the most difficult of economic times.

After 20 years covering the world of real people and their real money, Jean Chatzky knows there are some universal (and nagging) questions audiences have about their money. Do I pay for college or retirement? What do I do about my older parents? How do I rebuild a sagging portfolio? Is it possible to raise kids who will be financially independent? And what in heaven’s name can I do about that credit score? In this presentation that can be tailored specifically for the needs of your group—and the questions of the day—Jean will answer the questions she knows you have then conduct a Q&A that can include a money makeover or two for a member of your audience.

Lou Dobbs (Exclusively WSB)

One of America's most experienced and respected financial and political thinkers who has received almost every journalistic award, Lou Dobbs shares his insight on politics and the economy with a keen political perspective. From Main Street to Wall Street to world markets, Dobbs provides probing analysis of our political economy and offers a unique perspective on how our nation's leaders and government and business policies will likely shape America's future.

For the first time in eight years, a new administration takes over the White House – an administration with vastly different policy goals than the one that preceded it.  President Trump’s initiatives promise to have far ranging effects on taxes, health care, sector regulation, government spending, and the country’s fiscal situation. 

Andy Friedman, an expert in political and legislative affairs, will lay out the wide ranging initiatives President Trump will seek to enact during his first year in office, including those involving infrastructure, jobs, tax reform, and industry-specific proposals for energy, health care, financial services, and other sectors.  He will consider the extent to which Trump can expect support from the Republican-led Congress and the impediments that nonetheless may stand in the way of enactment.  Throughout the year, he will continue to follow the proposals as they are formulated and refined. 

He also will consider the extent to which the new administration is likely to overturn or soften regulatory policies the Obama administration put in place, including the controversial Department of Labor regulation imposing new fiduciary obligations on financial advisors.

Finally, Andy will discuss how the new administration’s initiatives are likely to affect the economy, industry sectors, tax planning, investments, and the markets.  He will provide strategies that investors and financial advisors can consider to take advantage of (or protect against) market volatility and upcoming legislation, including specific strategies for investment, wealth transfer, and retirement planning.

Think about what you learned in school: The Pythagorean theorem. The Gettysburg Address. Music. Art. These are important things to learn about; however, sometimes we’re taught them in lieu of a subject central to everything we do – money. In their most frequently requested speech, David and Tom Gardner take the audience through a list of simple financial lessons to fix the bad habits (credit-card debt; managed mutual funds) and begin the good (investing for our future). Along the way, they put the financial world in its proper context, explain the at times confusing terminology of the financial world and give audiences the confidence and clarity to make good, sound investment choices.
