Every attendee can submit questions for the guest, who will design their talk around you – your interests, your needs for vision, hope and good information. There will be ample time for discussion. You can stick around for the Bonus 15 minute Conversation Cafe when you can share what's bubbling with a small group of other attendees. After the class you will want to follow each speakers work as you work out your own relationship with money and your understanding of the global economy and what we can do to change it.
