I CAN COME TALK FOR YOU

While I speak regularly in front of larger audiences for organizations like the Financial Planning Association, the State University of New York and the New York Public Library, I am also available for smaller, private audiences on a number of financial planning and foreign national-related topics. Events may be held at and for corporations, colleges and universities, trade/cultural associations, affinity groups, new parent groups, consulates, or at MeetUps and conferences.

Organize a private group of friends, relatives, or clients and arrange a space (and maybe some coffee and donuts!), and I can come and give a presentation.

If your organization, college, or company has a high number of either foreign nationals (who need to be educated about their financial, tax, and legal situations) or a group of younger employees/members (who are hungry to learn how to save and invest effectively in a cost-effective and tax-efficient manner), then let's talk. I’m eager to give informative, educational, "non-salesy" presentations to them.

I have presentations on a number of subjects, including:

  • GET STARTED .. STOCKS, BONDS AND INVESTING BASICS

  • THE INVESTING PROCESS .. 3 STEPS TO GETTING STARTED RIGHT

  • "I'M INVESTED. NOW WHAT?"

  • MUTUAL FUNDS, INDEX FUNDS AND ETFS... WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES AND WHY DO THEY MATTER?

  • WATCH YOUR BEHAVIOR .. WHY MOST INVESTORS FAIL

  • WHY START SAVING AT A YOUNG AGE?

  • 401(K)S, 403(B)S... HOW TO OPTIMIZE YOUR WORKPLACE RETIREMENT PLAN

  • WHAT NON-CITIZENS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MANAGING THEIR FINANCES

  • COLLEGE FUNDING... HOW MUCH DO I NEED AND HOW DO I GET THERE?

  • FIN-TECH... THE FUTURE OF FINANCIAL ADVICE

  • PUBLIC SPEAKING, YOU CAN DO IT!

... with more to come.

Alternatively, just let me know on what you would like me to present and we'll put something together.

Simon.
