About this event

MarketsWiki Education’s World of Opportunity 2021 Virtual Event Announced For July 21

John Lothian News is pleased to announce a 2021 virtual event for the MarketsWiki Education World of Opportunity series. The one-day, 60-minute event will be held on Wednesday, July 21 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. CDT.

The online only event is FREE to registered participants.

The event includes two live presentations. The first is a fireside chat between JLN Publisher John Lothian and Small Exchange CEO Donnie Roberts. The second presentation will be by Ed Haravon of Get Real about how to use virtual reality in displaying and using data. Haravon will take us deep into the cutting-edge world of virtual reality data and its possibilities.

Additionally, other videos will be shared with the attendees for viewing at their convenience. The first additional video will be a presentation by OCC Executive Director of Talent Acquisition Andre Buckles. Buckles will discuss working for a company from a work-at- home or remote location.

The second video will be an interview with Robin Wood, a full-time compliance examiner at the National Futures Association who is a former summer intern from the Greenwood Project. She will discuss the Greenwood Project and how it prepared her for the opportunity to join the NFA full time.

The World of Opportunity series is aimed at interns, college students, new employees or anyone who is interested in a career in the financial markets. Our goal is to educate and inspire the next generation of industry professionals through insightful presentations by industry leaders.

We know this is not a typical year for college students and interns. Most firms that have interns are employing them remotely. Thus, the event is being held online, rather than in person at a financial district venue.

We encourage readers of JLN to spread the word and invite college-age family, friends, colleagues or anyone else to attend this year’s virtual event.

Also, JLN will be offering additional new presentations from industry speakers for the World of Opportunity series that will be recorded before and after the event and then shared publicly.

More information about the World of Opportunity series is available on or, including videos of previous years' presentations. The World of Opportunity series was launched in 2013 and has been presented in Chicago, New York, London and Stockholm.

Got a summer intern or young professional who would benefit from learning more about our industry? Send them our way.
