About the Presenters:

Maggie Baker, Ph.D. (Keynote Speaker)

Maggie Baker is an expert in understanding the dynamics of how people relate to money and the impact their attitudes, emotions and beliefs have on their money behavior, be they saving, spending and/or investing. These effects are often out of our awareness, which can make them doubly dangerous. Maggie’s recently published book, Crazy About Money: How Emotions Confuse Our Money Choices and What To Do About It, articulates common money conflicts, money avoidance and high-risk money behavior. Crazy About Money describes how adult maladaptive money behavior results from childhood half-truths and misinformation about money. A major clinical goal for Maggie is to help clinicians break the money taboo in clinical practice. She also works with money professionals to help them talk honestly and effectively to their clients about how emotions can negatively impact their money decisions.
