Our Guest of Honor:

Valerie Von

Financial Planner


"ADAPTING: Building An International Experience From Culture To Culture."

This will be an interactive evening. Valerie's experiences are relevant to all types of careers

Building an international experience from culture to culture: Adapting. Being willing and able to adapt is key to building a successful and joyful experience abroad. Valerie will speak about her own unique experience and how she became a financial planner in Paris.

Valerie was born and raised in Tahiti, French Polynesia, a tiny island of 200,000 inhabitants in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. She attended University in southern California and then traded derivatives and options on the American Stock Exchange in New York. She then signed exclusive sales and signed contracts for wireless credit card technology to banking institutions in Beijing, China, developed and established 11 high-end innovative sports clubs and spas in Tokyo, Japan, and is now helping individual taxpayers take advantage of the 400 legal tax loopholes in France as a Financial Planner.

From Valerie:

"By the way, I am 30 years old and looking forward to hearing about your own unique experiences as well.!"
