BRYN MAWR, PA – March 10, 2012 – Living a Life of Significance is a new book by Joseph W. Jordan, senior vice president, Behavioral Finance Strategies, MetLife, which describes the author’s personal journey of discovery as a financial services professional. Jordan will share excerpts of his book and talk about his passion for helping others achieve financial security as part of a presentation entitled Get Inspired at the national LAMP conference sponsored by GAMA International in Orlando, on March 19, 2012.
“Being in the audience during a Joe Jordan presentation is an electrifying experience,” says GAMA International CEO Jeffrey R. Hughes. “Joe’s ability to engage fellow professionals is truly inspiring. He has always been one of LAMP’s most dynamic and popular speakers, packing the room with an enthusiastic crowd.”
After reading Living a Life of Significance, American College President and Chief Executive Officer Larry Barton stated: “This book is a must-read for every financial services professional. Living a Life of Significance provided me with a renewed appreciation for the dedicated men and women of our industry who create financial security and protect families’ dreams.”
All LAMP ’12 attendees will have the opportunity to purchase a copy of Jordan’s book and a DVD featuring his presentations from two previous LAMP conferences. (A Spanish-language version of Living a Life of Significance will also be available.) Proceeds from the DVD and book sales benefit GAMA and The American College, both non-profit organizations.
There will be three opportunities for LAMP ’12 attendees to purchase books and DVDs and to have their copies of Living a Life of Significance signed by Joe Jordan.
