Future of Business Trends Lecture Series



ROCKLIN, Calif., - William Jessup University will begin a three-part lecture series focusing on the future of business trends. Held on February 18 at 7 p.m. in the University’s Lecture Hall, the first discussion in this free series open to the public will examine the “Future of the Financial Markets” and features Scott Hanson, of Hanson McLain Financial. 

Hanson will discuss the systemic issues in our financial system that contributed to the economic crisis. He will also address the current market and government response to that crisis and summarize some of the potential implications that might have for the future. 

“One of the goals of this speaker series is to engage with the local and regional business community,” said Rhonda Capron, Jessup’s Assistant Professor of Business Administration. 

"This will not only benefit our students but will provide a forum to benefit business professionals in our region.  In a time of great economic uncertainty, more information and tools to help businesses and individuals succeed can only help improve our community at large." 

Hanson is a senior partner and founding principal of Hanson McClain Advisors Inc. He is a nationally known financial expert identified by Investment Advisor magazine as one of the 25 most influential people in the financial services industry nationwide. 

Hanson has been a guest on Fox News and appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Kiplinger’s and numerous industry publications. Hanson is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, a Certified Fund Specialist (CFS) and a Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC). In addition to serving his clients, he has taught financial planning courses for hundreds of other financial planners and Fortune 500 companies. 

Hanson is the author of Money Matters: Essential Tips & Tools for Building Financial Peace of Mind. He and his business partner also host a weekly call-in talk radio show, Saturday’s from 2 to 4 p.m. on NewsTalk 1530 KFBK covering investment and financial topics. 

Scott currently serves on the board of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, the Pride Industries Foundation and the advisory board of New Morning Youth and Family Services. 

The evening format will include a 45 minute discussion followed by a question and answer period.
