Jane Bryant Quinn's Speech Topics

Yes, You Can You Still Retire Well

We all want to end our careers with enough money to live well. But how do you reach that goal, especially in turbulent times when all the rules have been turned on their heads? Jane Bryant Quinn steers you through the best ways of balancing safety and risk, in your 401(k)s and other investments. She covers how much you really need to save; sound investment allocations; new areas of investment growth; and the role of home equity, health insurance and mutual funds. Her advice is live, informative and fresh. Audiences will walk away with fresh ideas about navigating through the current economy to achieve their retirement dreams.

Why Women Are (and Can Be!) Great Investors

The notion that women are timid investors just isn’t true. Women with the same amount of investing experience as men invest just as assertively. So, for everyone, gaining that knowledge and experience is the key to investment success. Jane Bryant Quinn provides women with straightforward advice on how to learn, how to practice and how to make good investment choices, while avoiding common traps. Quinn also discusses the important—but rarely discussed—lessons on how couples should invest, including meshing dual 401(k)s, planning for the risk of divorce, and organizing savings and investments for the woman’s longer life span. Quinn’s presentation will empower and enlighten all women investors—from the new stock-owner to the experienced portfolio holder.

The Economy and Your Money

Times are tough. A financial crisis is changing the rules. What’s the best way of making the most of the money you’ve got left? How do you regain the ground you’ve lost? Financial columnist and best-selling author Jane Bryant Quinn offers hard-hitting and audience-pleasing advice on surviving the worst financial downturn since the Great Depression. She covers the current business and investment outlook, and explains what it means in terms of managing your personal money. Each speech is tailored to the specific needs and interests of the audience. She’s smart, fun and a terrific speaker. Audiences, like her readers, love her.

Making the Most of Your Money Today

In an inspiring talk for people of all ages, Jane Bryant Quinn gives advice and ideas on managing money. She starts with the current economic environment to help her audience understand the critical issues of the day. From there, she moves into financial planning, including practical tips on how to save more, borrow more efficiently, buy the right health and life insurance, set up the best college fund, choose good investments for your 401(k) and IRA, and avoid investment loss. Quinn’s watchword is “simplicity.” Simple, low-cost strategies are always the best, she says, not just because they’re easy to understand but because they work—especially in difficult times. In fact, they’re the strategies she uses herself.

Facing the Challenge: How to Make Your Money Last for Life

Hoping for early retirement? Retired already? These are the years when smart planning takes top billing—especially when stocks turn upside down. You need to be able to pay your bills yet keep enough money in your accounts to last for life. Jane Bryant Quinn gives audiences timely, practical and encouraging advice for drawing on savings without giving up their personal security. Her topics include such things as understanding how much you can afford to withdraw, what to put in stocks and what in bonds, handling IRAs and 401(k)s, whether to use annuities and mobilizing home equity. Quinn also reviews how to avoid common big investment traps, sending audiences away with hands-on financial strategies to use now—and in the future.

A Custom-Tailored Speech

No two of Jane Bryant Quinn’s speeches are the same. To make each speech a value-added experience, she conducts a pre-event call with each client. Then she tailors her talk to developments in your industry and to the needs and interests of the audience. Her talks also change as the economy and stock market do—namely, fast. She delivers insight, with clarity and wit, to people trying to navigate through unprecedented times.
