The Art of Reinvention with Simidele Adeagbo

Are you ready to re:invent advice?

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.

Wealth and Well-being with Sarah Newcomb, Ph.D.

Are you ready to re:define the way you support your clients?

Sarah Newcomb, Ph.D. is a behavioral economist who serves as the Director of Financial Psychology at Morningstar and authors a new weekly column, Human Capital: Exploring the Intersection of Psychology and Finance. An interdisciplinary scholar, Sarah has expertise in consumer psychology, economic decision-making, personal money management, and cognitive and social psychology.

Sarah is driven by a desire to help others to tap into an empowering mindset, dream big, and then employ their resources in pursuit of a life they will love. She became a financial psychologist after discovering that her own issues with money had nothing to do with numbers and everything to do with the attitudes and beliefs she held about money itself. Now, her goal is to teach people how to use money well so they can live their best life—even well before they reach their long-term financial goals.

Sound familiar? At XYPN, we’re all about helping advisors, and their clients, live their great lives, and Sarah is excited to share frameworks and strategies to help you do that in the uncertainties of our current environment.
