Your Sustainable Wealth: Identify, Leverage and Thrive

For Watermark community, we define wealth as our intellectual and financial resources - our network, our growth in leadership and our investable wealth, as well as our inclination to collaborate through our ideas and our resiliency. In the month of September, Watermark invites you to join us for an evening of powerful insights and thought-leadership. 

The evening starts with a keynote from Lynne Twist, and her book, The Soul of Money. This compelling and fundamentally liberating conversation shows us that examining our attitudes toward money — how we earn it, spend it, invest it, and give it away — can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values and the essence of prosperity.


Afterwards, you are invited to attend an exclusive panel for a dynamic discussion comprised of leading experts and high-profile speakers, including Dr. Hemalee Patel and Boryana Zamanoff, who offer an in depth look at using your wealth for good and the positive impact on your health. Whether you are a senior executive looking for some insights or an emerging executive on your way up, be inspired and take away practical approaches to better understand where you are in life and where you want to go.
