Keynote Speaker: Jordan Belfort
Jordan Belfort is the best-selling author of three iconic books: Wolf of Wall Street, Catching the Wolf of Wall Street, and The Way of the Wolf. He is also the subject of the blockbuster movie, The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Martin Scorsese, that was nominated for five Academy Awards. In the 1990s, Jordan Belfort built one of the most dynamic and successful sales organizations in Wall Street history. During that time, he soared to the highest financial heights, earning over $50 million a year, a feat that coined him the name “The Wolf of Wall Street”. Along the way Belfort, endured a spectacular, and well-publicized, fall from grace. His story is the ultimate tale of how the pursuit of wealth can often trump the importance of ethics in the business world. Learning invaluable lessons from his mistakes and money lost, he re-emerged to become a globally recognized potent force behind extraordinary business successes for himself and others. Since then, he’s been a consultant to more than 50 public companies, and has been featured in virtually every major newspaper and magazine in the world, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The London Times, The Herald Tribune, Le Monde, Corriere della Serra, Forbes, Business Week, Paris Match and Rolling Stone.
