Clarify Your Message So Customers Will Listen: How the Power of Story Can Grow Your Business

Most leaders, marketers, salespeople and managers struggle to explain what they do. It's not because they aren't smart, hard-working or likable, it's because they aren't communicating clearly. StoryBrand helps companies understand what customers are looking for so they can tell their story in such a way people listen. The human brain is drawn to CLARITY and away from confusion. If customers are confused about what you offer, they'll look past you for somebody who can say it clearly. Once you clarify your message, your company will begin to grow.

Tax Planning For A Biden Administration: The Proposed Biden Tax Plan

The beginning of 2021 ushered in a new U.S President and a change of control in the U.S Senate. In this session, we will explore what President Joe Biden has detailed as his proposed tax plan, the focus primarily on individual income tax, estate tax and investment taxation. This program will take a holistic look at the proposed platform, and attendees will learn about the major changes outlined by President Biden, exploring both the new challenges, and planning opportunities, it creates.

Investing After the Restart

The powerful economic restart after the Covid-19 shock continues to play out. We remain pro-risk as the restart broadens.

But the more consequential question: What lies beyond? The post-global financial crisis playbook won’t work, in our view, as the historic monetary-fiscal collaboration to bridge the pandemic should lead to a higher inflation regime. This means we don’t expect another decade-long bull market in stocks and bonds.
