Monday Morning Speakers 2016

Monday Speakers meetings are open to the public and free of charge. You are cordially invited to attend.

Each meeting features a speaker who covers topics of interest to those who are involved in or contemplating a job search or career change. The meeting begins with a networking session at 9:45 AM. We ask everyone to be seated by 9:55 AM so that the speaker can start promptly at 10:00 AM.

No reservations are needed. Come network with 40Plus members, other guests, and the speaker. The meeting is also an opportunity for anyone who is considering joining 40Plus to see and experience our organization.

Many of us continue our networking conversations over lunch at the nearby Brookings Institution which has a very affordable cafeteria with great choices for entrees as well as an excellent salad bar. Plan to join us.

    Monday Morning Speaker: Erik Fromm


    Conversation with Erik Fromm

    Erik Fromm

    Janney Montgomery Scott

    Especially in the heightened stress of transitional periods of our lives, we must combat forces that lead to poor decisions. Drawing on behavioral psychology research and our team’s collective experience in navigating situations for our clients, we’ll discuss the impact of Narrow Framing, Confirmation Bias, Short Term Emotion, and Overconfidence and discuss a four-step process designed to counteract these biases.

     

    Primary source of the material – “Decisive” By Dan and Chip Heath.


    What steps should professionals in transition take to safeguard their financial future?  Are there specific tax and financial strategies for transition that can minimize risk and reduce stress?  What should you do when you find a new role, to build financial health and future security?

    These are just a few of the vital questions that we'll address during this presentation.  

    Erik Fromm

    Erik is a lead Financial Advisor with CSG Capital Partners of Janney Montgomery Scott. He holds his FINRA series 7,66 and 31 license as well as a general insurance license. In addition to these licenses, Erik is a Certified Financial Planning professional. With his strong financial planning background, Erik works with individual and corporate clients in transition, providing the guidance necessary to master key defining moments, from buying your first home, to career progressions, to preparing for retirement. Understanding that emotional and financial transitions go together, Erik works with CSG clients to understand the full impact of their meaning to the client, family or business, and tailors appropriate investment solutions to meet that need.

    On a personal level, Erik is a graduate of Gettysburg College where he excelled as a scholar-athlete. A passionate student of leadership and behavioral economics, he enjoys the opportunity to apply these disciplines to the team's client experience. He and his wife Ashley were married in Bali, Indonesia and love to travel, having explored world locations such as Belize and Thailand. Their time these days is occupied by the newest addition to their family, and future traveler and golfer, their son Ashton. A perfect weekend day for the Fromms is spent outside at the farmer's market, at the park, and around the grill.

    Monday Morning Speaker: Barbara Mitchell
         

    Making the Most of Informational Interviews with BARBARA MITCHELL

    Conversation with Barbara mitchell 

    One of the best ways to gather data to help you focus your job search is to do informational interviews with people who either already are doing the kind of work you're searching for or who have expertise in your field of interest. While these interviews don't usually lead to job offers, they provide you with valuable information to use as you continue your search.

    The people you'll want to interview with are typically busy professionals so you must carefully structure your "ask" and keep to an agreed to time frame.  This session will focus on:

     

    • Setting up informational interviews
    • Preparing for informational interviews
    • Conducting an informational interview
    • Following up after an informational interview
