Our Comment

"Todd is a highly charismatic speaker who loves to fire up a room. An expert in his field, his editorials in the Wall Street Journal and commentaries on PBS correctly forecast the 2001 slowdown in the US, the 2008 pop in commodity prices, and the downgrade of the US debt rating. Todd entertains his audiences and shows them how to thrive in a challenging economy, while gearing up for future prosperity. He also was a co-producer of the Broadway smash Jersey Boys!"
