Moolala: Why Smart People Do Dumb Things with Their Money (And What You Can Do About It)

Moolala is an optimistic and fun keynote that focuses on inspiring people to get a handle on their money so they can live the life they want. The presentation answers two simple and equally important questions: Why do smart people do dumb things with their money? And what can we do about it?

Bruce Sellery will help your audience:

  • Get clarity on some of the mistakes they’re making with their money, as well help them set priorities about what they need to know and work on first.
  • Create a simple plan to correct their mistakes quickly, and without requiring them to make personal finance their new hobby.
  • Be inspired to get off their duff and into action immediately. That includes becoming more confident in asking questions about money and removing the taboos that surround it.

Hosting, Moderating and Town Hall Events

Bruce Sellery has 16 years experiencing professionally hosting and moderating on national television.  Bruce will moderate panel discussions by providing something completely customized and unique in a format in which leaders can connect with their audience in a more relaxed way.

Bruce calls his approach “TV without Cameras”.  It uses the principles and practices of television to guide the development and delivery of the event.

This includes conducting background research and pre-interviews, briefing panelists, and developing topics for discussion.  Then, on the day of the event, the approach relies on the steady hand of an experienced TV anchor to guide the conversation and weave in questions from the audience.

Takeaways – Audience members will:

  • Understand the nuances of the topics being discussed.
  • Engage at a new level, feeling that they have had a chance to participate versus just observe and take notes.
  • Have a better sense of who the panelists are as people.
  • Leave the room feeling inspired and having had some fun.
