Join us at OCSC on Tuesday, August 11th at 7pm for a special encore presentation of Matt Weinstein’s “Why Bernie Madoff Couldn’t Steal From Me“. Matt Weinstein is the nation’s foremost authority on the use of fun and humor in team building. Matt is the founder and “Emperor” of Playfair, Inc. an international consulting firm based in Berkeley, California. He was elected to the Professional Speaker’s Hall of Fame by the National Speaker’s Association, and was honored by Successful Meetings Magazine as one of the “21 Top Speakers for the 21st Century.”
Award-winning inspirational speaker Matt Weinstein was on an OCSC trip to Antarctica when he learned via satellite telephone that he had lost his entire life savings in the Bernie Madoff scandal. In this highly personal, interactive and entertaining program, Weinstein recounts the inside story of the highly-secretive Madoff fund.
“But there is something else I discovered that is much more important,” says Weinstein— “how to survive life’s inevitable downturns with a sense of Basic Trust, so that you can land on your feet no matter what. These are difficult economic times for everyone, but the great news is that it is possible to find joy, celebration and a sense of meaning even here, even now.”
As the Epictetus the Stoic philosopher pointed out nearly 2,000 years ago, it isn’t what happens to you that changes your life— it’s how you react to it that counts.
*There will be a documentary film crew filming this presentation, and all audience members will be asked to sign a release form so you can appear in the film. You don’t need to do anything but be yourself…. and laugh at Matt’s jokes! The director and producer will be attending and happy to answer any questions you may have before and after the presentation.
