Topic: Top Seven Secrets in the U.S. Financial Landscape

Maura Cunningham, founder and Executive Director of Rock The Street, Wall Street, joins us for an informative webinar that outlines the top seven secrets that afflict the financial lives of U.S. citizens. Highlights include the fact that we lose girls in math at age nine in the US, the number one reason why girls don’t choose STEMP professions (Finance is the M in STEM), and why women need to learn “fake it til you make it”, just like the guys. She'll also discuss the abhorrent state of financial literacy in the U.S., the “fake” state legislation to remedy this, how the financial services industry doesn’t know how to recruit women and why diversity and inclusion budgets are offensive.

Topic: The Value of Professional Designations

When pursuing a professional designation, it is important to know what you are looking for and why you are looking for it. Most financial advisors pursue a credential to advance their career, distinguish themselves within the industry, expand their business, or their clients are looking for it.

With so many financial credentials out there, how do you know which one is best for you? Is it from an accredited institution and will it truly add value to your business? It is paramount that your time, effort, and money are well spent to further your career. The College for Financial Planning works hard to ensure our students find the right designation for their personal and professional goals all while providing an exceptional learning experience. The College offers programs for all levels from those new to the industry to someone who is growing their business or wanting to advance their education to graduate studies. Join me to learn more about which designation may be right for you.

Date: Wednesday, August 28, 2019
Time: 2:00pm EST
Speaker: Yolanda Lewis, MBA
Topic: Mastering Emotional Intelligence for Leaders

Like Google, managers are expected to have all of the answers. So why, in a culture known for immediate information accessibility, is it so difficult to drive high-performance results? This program focuses on just that. From understanding emotional intelligence, creating an automated leadership model to developing communication across generational lines in a way that incorporates the fast-paced culture of momentous results, this program is designed to improve performance and engagement by showing leaders how to master emotional intelligence.
