Jordan Belfort, the American stock broker whose story inspired Martin Scorsese`s movie The Wolf of Wall Street, will come for the first time to Romania in November to share his sales methods in a conference organized by Extreme Training.
Belfort will present his sales system, Straight Line Persuasion, which helped him set up a brokerage firm with 1,000 employees and make USD 1 million a week for himself in the 90s.
Belfort came into public attention as a “bad guy” after he was prosecuted for securities fraud and money laundering in one of the largest stock market scandals on Wall Street in the 90s. He served 22 months in prison for a pump and dump stock selling scheme which cost his clients approximately USD 200 million in losses.
His rise to success and his extravagant lifestyle were portrayed in The Wolf of Wall Street movie (trailer below), in which Leonardo diCaprio plays Jordan Belfort . However, Belfort is now a changed man and uses his skills as a public speaker and trainer, teaching others how to sell more, how to get more from their life, and how to do this in an ethical way.
Tickets for the Bucharest conference are EUR 375 to EUR 790.
