Description

In the 1976 Academy Award-winning best picture, "Network", Peter Finch played a news anchor who was so upset with world events that he delivers a TV speech with the famous line “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

More than four decades later, when we learn of foolish business decisions leading to a crisis, we probably feel the same way.

Today we see case after case of short-term profits emphasized over long-term sustainability.  This session explains how financial professionals can help protect and defend our organizations and clients from self-inflicted disasters.
