Keynotes Set for RIMS '14 2/10/2014



“The Wolf of Wall Street” Jordan Belfort to Deliver Opening Address

NEW YORK (February 10, 2014) – RIMS, the risk management society™, has announced the lineup of keynote speakers for RIMS 2014 Annual Conference & Exhibition scheduled for April 27 – 30 in Denver.   

General Session – Monday, April 28th at 8:30 a.m.
Jordan Belfort, New York Times Bestselling Author & Motivational Speaker
This is a story of redemption. Hear the personal story from the inspiration for the Martin Scorsese film, about Jordan Belfort’s rise and fall as a Wall Street icon. Jordan will share the invaluable lessons from the mistakes he made and how he re-emerged as a globally recognized potent force behind extraordinary business success. Belfort will help you break the barriers holding you back from achieving success, and attain goals you never dreamed possible. The proceeds he garners from this speaking engagement is allocated to repaying his victims.

Award Luncheon – Monday, April 28th at 12:15 p.m.
Bonnie St. John, Author, Olympic Medalist, Leadership Consultant
Elite international Paralympic athletes achieve excellence when the circumstances are less than ideal—a perfect metaphor for today’s dynamic economic times. Disabled athletes—including wheelchair basketball players, blind runners and others—never expect things to be “normal.” Bonnie St. John’s story is proof that you can strive for excellence no matter what obstacles are thrown in your way. Hailed as “one of the five most inspiring women in America” by NBC Nightly News, St. John uses her unique experience as a one-legged ski champion, Rhodes Scholar and White House official to encourage audiences to aim higher and achieve extraordinary results.

Conference Finale – Wednesday, April 30th at 3:15 p.m.
Ben Stein, Actor & Author
Drawing on his life experiences as a presidential speechwriter, a best-selling author, an economist, game show host and movie star, keynote speaker Ben Stein delivers presentations that are always entertaining, always informative, and always ripe with expertise on everything from the law to laughs.
