The second staging of Jamaica Money Market Brokers (JMMB) Group’s start of the year financial empowerment event series, dubbed JMMB Elevate 2.0, will feature Steven Bartlett, 27-year-old chief executive officer of The Social Chain, international speaker, content creator and a digital media guru, as the keynote speaker.

Bartlett will share from his personal experience about wealth creation, entrepreneurship and balancing life to achieve greatness, having built two flagship companies, social chain and media chain, from his bedroom, at just 22 years old, before taking his company public at the age of 27, all after a university dropout.

The award-winning entrepreneur, with accolades such as Great British Entrepreneur of the Year and Most Influential Agency Figure 2018 boasts clientele including Apple, Amazon, Coca-Cola, Superdry and Nokia, through his company, Social Chain.

Also sharing the stage on the occasion will be Rochelle Cameron, attorney-at-law and motivational speaker, who is no stranger to these empowerment platforms. Cameron, who was also a part of the line-up last year, will speak about awakening your vision to step into a purpose-filled life.

The two-day event, slated for January 17 to 18 in Kingston, is designed to help individuals to take their goal planning and achievement to the next level, by giving attendees all the information they need to create actionable plans.

“It is against this background that, in addition to the empowerment speakers who will anchor the event, JMMB financial experts, Peter Thompson and Greig Lindo, will add another element to the set, providing financial insight, sharing practical pointers and wealth creation opportunities that will allow attendees to take their wealth creation a step further, in 2020,” said Kerry-Ann Stimpson, chief marketing officer at JMMB Group.

Also included in this year’s staging are two new components, namely pre-event workshops and an interactive fireside chat, dubbed ‘Learn and Vibe’. The pre-event workshops, slated for the morning of Saturday, January 18, will explore financial management and entrepreneurship, which will complement the financial empowerment main stage. JMMB experts will delve into issues surrounding the growth and management of small and medium-sized businesses, creating a financial plan, crafting a budget, planning for the future and debt management.

Admission to the JMMB Elevate event series is free.
