As the saying goes, when it rains, it pours
Next Monday I will host our firm's monthly webinar, when I'll discuss at length the subject of GIPS(R) (Global Investment Performance Standards) Performance Examinations.
Later that week (Thursday, July 28 @ 2:00 PM EST, to be exact), I will conduct a webinar for the Advent Users' Group titled "Rethinking Performance Measurement."
I will deliver a luncheon speech before the NYSSA (New York Society of Security Analysts) titled "Performance measurement and alternative investments: where things stay the same and where they diverge" on Tuesday, September 27.
The NAMIC (National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies) invited me to deliver a talk at their Investment Workshop in November, but I had to ask John Simpson to take this instead, as I will be a few thousand miles away delivering the keynote speech at a Risk Management Symposium in Kuala Lumpur. That same week I will deliver a talk before a Directors' Convention (also in Kuala Lumpur).
I very much enjoy public speaking and try to fit events in as best I can. Earlier this year I delivered talks in Beijing and Singapore, and of course at PMAR and PMAR Europe, but had little time to take on much more because our GIPS and non-GIPS verification practice has grown quite a bit, as have our consulting engagements, which often leaves little time for these programs. Fortunately, there has been some flexibility in my schedule to allow me to do these upcoming sessions.
Because John Simpson and Jed Schneider are also accomplished public speakers, we are usually able to accommodate groups who host events. Anyone interested in having us speak should contact Christopher Spaulding or Patrick Fowler.
