Jordan Belfort, the “Wolf of Wall Street,” to Speak in Long Beach
2014-08-04 · By Editor
Jordan Belfort, the real-life “Wolf of Wall Street,” will embark on a major national U.S. speaking tour beginning September 15 in Tampa, Florida arriving in Long Beach October 2 at the Long Beach Convention Center. The tour, titled “The Truth Behind His Success,” brings Belfort to American audiences, following sold-out presentations internationally from Australia to Dubai. He now comes to the U.S. as one of the world’s top speakers on sales, marketing and entrepreneurial achievement, and is in constant demand worldwide.
Belfort, portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in his autobiographical blockbuster film, “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” based on his best-selling book by the same name, will give 100 percent of all his profits from his U.S. speaking tour back to investors who lost money during his tenure at Stratton Oakmont, as restitution payments. He has also given 100 percent of the royalties of his two best-selling books “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Catching The Wolf of Wall Street.” The film has made $375 million globally, and his books have been published in more than 75 countries and translated into 25 different languages.
Belfort’s extraordinary drive, ambition and power to influence is taught through his “Straight Line System,” which has helped to create countless success stories. Says Belfort “I cracked the code on how to teach anyone, regardless of age, education or skill level, to be a master sales person, negotiator or entrepreneur.” Adds Leonardo DiCaprio about Belfort: “He stands as an example of the transformative qualities of ambition and hard work. In that regard, he is a true motivator.”
In the 1990s, Jordan Belfort built one of the most dynamic and successful sales organizations in Wall Street history. During that time, he soared to the highest financial heights, earning more than $50 million per year. As the owner of Stratton Oakmont, Belfort employed more than 1,000 stockbrokers, raised more than $1.5 billion in venture capital and started 30-plus million-dollar companies from scratch.
Along the way, he succumbed to some of the trappings of the high-flying Wall Street lifestyle, going through a well-publicized fall from grace. Taking invaluable lessons from the mistakes he made and the prices he paid, he has re-emerged as a globally recognized potent force behind extraordinary business success – covering disciplines such as leadership, communication, the art of persuasion and capital raising.
Belfort has acted as a consultant to more than 50 public companies, and his comprehensive training sessions are structured to meet one’s specific needs. His engagements have ranged from introductory three-hour talks, to three-day, in-depth training programs. He also offers ongoing consultation on how to actively grow the marketing and sales results of an organization.
“The Truth Behind His Success Tour” offers the unique opportunity to hear about pivotal moments in this life story – the first flush of success; the near destructions; and the lessons he learned from them.
