She has persistently generated growth and increased the bottom line of brands across all categories in most every market, literally making billions of dollars for her clients. Based on her history of winning loyal customers, Passante has shaped Halo into a top-tier New York agency. Working alongside a formidable executive team with global brand experience and a deep understanding of the interconnection of communications, she has established a strong reputation as an agency leader on the forefront of communications. In 2004, she completed the Harvard School of Business Executive Leadership Program and recently the NYU Executive Finance and Accounting Program. She has been recognized by Wall Street Journal's Women of Note, SmartCEO, and Stevie Best International Entrepreneurs.

What Markets' Reaction to Brexit Reveals About Investor Psychology Jonathan Citrin Financial Advisor Ameriprise Financial Britain's decision to leave the EU unleashed a wave of volatility in the global economic world, and financial markets have been on a wild, fear-fueled roller coaster ride since the Brexit vote. What can we learn from Brexit about market behavior and investor psychology? What can investors do to insulate their portfolios against the impact of volatility caused by momentous geopolitical events such as Brexit? Using his expertise in behavioral finance and market fundamentals, Citrin can explain the reasons behind the post-Brexit turbulence in markets, and can speak authoritatively about the benefits of seeing the investing landscape from a mindful and global perspective and incorporating diversification and correlation into the construction of your investment portfolio: "As markets react over a British vote to exit the European Union, the word 'control' comes to mind. Certainly the Brexit backlash was not driven by economics, but by emotions. When humans are confronted by uncertainty, we react by grasping for anything that makes us feel in control. It is essential for us to understand the reasons behind this reaction in our markets and minds, as truly knowing why things happen is much more powerful than knowing what things happen." An international speaker and author, Citrin is a recognized authority on financial markets, global economics, and behavioral finance. Before the Brexit vote, for example, he spoke with U.S. News & World Report about the potential economic impact of Brexit (http://tinyurl.com/h9pk23n). After the referendum, he wrote a piece for Investopedia on "Brexit and the Inevitability of Volatility" (http://tinyurl.com/hgqxrja), and had another piece on "Isolationism is Bad for Business" (http://tinyurl.com/gvyw9m4) published by DBusiness. He is based in Michigan. ProfNet Profile: http://www.profnetconnect.com/jonathancitrin Website: http://www.jonathancitrin.com Contact: William Citrin, [email protected]

Trends in Vacation Rentals and Vacation Real Estate Brian Egan CEO Evolve Vacation Rental Network, Denver "Traditionally, vacation homes have been reserved for retirees and elites who have the time and money to manage and use the property, and can afford the high costs associated with ownership. But times are changing, and as a result of the growing 'sharing economy,' more homeowners are turning their second homes into lucrative investments earlier in life." Egan is co-founder and CEO of Evolve Vacation Rental Network. Previously, he was a seed-stage employee at Exclusive Resorts, LLC, where he held leadership roles focused on business development and international expansion. He began his career as a corporate attorney at Gunderson Dettmer. Website: https://evolvevacationrental.com Contact: Jake Kubie, [email protected]
