Planning with a Purpose - Speaker Michelle Hong, Northern Trust, will discuss important conversations to have with clients throughout the estate planning process, including how to help families articulate their goals and intent with respect to the transfer of wealth to future generations, how and when to share information with children, and key considerations and tools in designing the wealth plan. 


Thinking about Tangibles - Speaker Dunham Townend, Sotheby’s, will review current trends in collecting and how collection habits might differ among generations.  She will also discuss various options for passing one’s collections and treasures to the next steward, including passing items to family members, sales to other collectors, and donations to charitable organizations. 

Speaker Darla Pompilio, Your Tasks Our Time, will discuss some of the practicalities of helping clients get started, get organized, and thinking through what to do with all the stuff. 


Ethics Hour - Speaker Glenn Henkel, Kulzer & DiPadova, P.A., will present the Ethics Matrix, which itemizes how each of the various estate planning disciplines addresses the Seven “Cs” – confidentiality, conflicts, competence, compliance, compensation, collaboration and communication. 

Speaker Chris Fiore, Fiore & Barber, LLC, will analyze common ethical issues that advisors may confront when working with multiple family members, particularly in the real estate context.
