Carl Richards is a Certified Financial Planner™ and creator of the (highly-acclaimed) "Sketch Guy" column that appeared weekly in The New York Times from 2010 to 2020. Along the way, he founded the Behavior Gap newsletter and podcast and is the author of two books.
Through his simple sketches, Carl makes complex financial concepts easy to understand. He believes in delivering financial advice differently to be more accessible, informed, and impactful for all. So does XYPN, and that’s why Carl is thrilled to be speaking at #XYPNLIVE 2022.
In his keynote, Carl wants to start a conversation about what it means to be a real financial advisor. You'll embark on a deeply introspective journey regarding your job as an advisor and what it means to serve as a trusted guide in your clients' lives. Together, you'll re:imagine the meaning of your role as a financial advisor.
In 2018, Simidele Adeagbo became the first Nigerian Winter Olympian and the first African and Black woman to compete in skeleton at the Olympics. All while navigating a predominantly Eurocentric, male-dominated sport on the world's biggest stage, where a woman of color had never been represented. Another barrier she didn't let get in her way? She had no prior experience in skeleton.
Re:invention is a concept Simidele knows well, and she also knows it is essential for personal growth and evolution. It's not always easy to achieve, though, so to help you navigate the re:invention process, Simidele will share the transformational blueprint from her 100-day journey to Olympian status during her keynote at #XYPNLIVE 2022.
In her interactive keynote designed to invite courage and resilience, you'll learn how to take control of your future while remaining true to yourself. Learn how to move toward new or improved goals, navigate change and explore what your next re:invention might look like for you. Learn about showing up and being bold. You'll explore how to stay focused, overcome challenges, and build agility and resilience. Simidele will encourage each member of the audience to imagine your limitless possibilities and find your power in a way that emphasizes your own unique strengths.
A company without purpose is a company without a plan. SoulPancake has had purpose in its DNA since the beginning. In this keynote, SoulPancake co-founder Shabnam Mogharabi will discuss her company’s mission and origin story and show why being powered by purpose not only creates impact but drives revenue. Attendees will learn how to analyze what they stand for, what their business stands for, and how that impacts their behavior towards customers, employees, and colleagues.
