Topics

Moolala: Why smart people do dumb things with their money (and what you can do about it)

Moolala is an optimistic and fun keynote that focuses on inspiring people to get a handle on their money so they can live the life they want. The presentation answers two simple and equally important questions: Why do smart people do dumb things with their money? And what can we do about it?

Learning Outcomes:

Bruce Sellery will help your audience:

  • Get clarity on some of the mistakes they’re making with their money, as well help them set priorities about what to work on first.

  • Create a simple plan to correct their mistakes quickly, and without requiring them to make personal finance their new hobby.

  • Be inspired to get off their duff and into action immediately. That includes becoming more confident in asking questions about money and removing the taboos that surround it.

"First Call": Proving the Value of Your Financial Advice So You Become Your Clients' First Call

More than ever before, Financial Advisors must prove the value of the advice they provide. New FinTech start-ups, regulatory changes, and increased competition have clients questioning whether or not they are getting what they are paying for.

In this keynote, Bruce Sellery offers a new and compelling perspective on how to demonstrate your value and articulate it even more clearly. He helps you prove to clients, beyond any doubt, that you are the one to help them live the life they want, making you the “first call” they make when faced with a big decision.

Audiences will walk away better understanding why smart clients sometimes do dumb things with their money, and what you can do, as their trusted advisor, to help them do even more “smart things”.  Specifically:

  • The Keys to Communication: Move beyond industry jargon to talk about your value on your clients’ terms.  Find out what makes their eyes sparkle and help them open up with you, their spouse and family members so everyone is aligned on the plan, and more comfortable talking about money in general.

  • The Higher-Order Benefit: Financial advice has traditionally been framed in terms of portfolio performance and financial needs.  Uncovering the deeper, emotional higher-order benefit, and then delivering on it in a holistic way, drives trust, loyalty and referrals.

  • The Momentum Builder: Inertia can be a devastating drag on results.  As their advisor, you can help your clients reach new heights by taking accountability for plans across all facets of their life, and using your expert network to follow-through on them. 

Hosting, Moderating & Town Hall Events

Bruce Sellery has 16 years experiencing professionally hosting and moderating on national television.  Bruce will moderate panel discussions by providing something completely customized and unique in a format in which leaders can connect with their audience in a more relaxed way.

Bruce calls his approach “TV without Cameras”.  It uses the principles and practices of television to guide the development and delivery of the event.

This includes conducting background research and pre-interviews, briefing panelists, and developing topics for discussion.  Then, on the day of the event, the approach relies on the steady hand of an experienced TV anchor to guide the conversation and weave in questions from the audience.

Takeaways – Audience members will:

  • Understand the nuances of the topics being discussed.

  • Engage at a new level, feeling that they have had a chance to participate versus just observe and take notes.

  • Have a better sense of who the panelists are as people.

  • Leave the room feeling inspired and having had some fun.

In a market crying out for saviours, Sellery is a bracing splash of cold water.

–Alberta Venture

Bruce is magnetic with an audience. His combined warmth, professionalism, use of real-life examples, and sense of humour make his keynote addresses the highlight of any event.

–Financial Services Multi-National

Bruce Sellery had a mixed group of equipment professionals completely engaged for his entire presentation. His comments were timely, witty and had neither the politicians nor the businessman’s bias. He also took the time to highlight a few equipment stocks that were suppliers to many of the people in the room, which brought the presentation to a personal level. I would highly recommend Bruce for any group trying to understand financial and business environment.

–Wajax Limited
