For over 40 years he has worked with, advised, and consulted with hundreds of financial institutions, corporations and government agencies around the world.

The information that he will provide will be educational with his approach and knowledge base like no other. We will also offer the VIP Meet & Greet immediately before the main event for all sponsors – again, another valuable opportunity."
