At HighTower, we believe that financial health is a component of overall wellbeing. Advisors in our community are passionate about making a difference in our clients’ lives—not just their portfolios.

Our upcoming Apex 2017 summit is dedicated to the idea that financial success is not an end-goal, but a catalyst to achieving an extraordinary quality of life. So we invited speakers who know a few things about leading fulfilling and inspiring lives:

Oprah Winfrey described Kyle Maynard as “one of the most inspiring young men you will ever hear about.” Kyle was born with a rare condition known as congenital amputation that left him with arms that end at the elbows and legs that end near his knees. Nevertheless, Kyle has achieved incredible athletic accomplishments. In 2012, he became the first quadruple amputee to climb – actually bearcrawl – the 19,340 feet to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro without the aid of prosthetics.

Jenn Limm’s philosophy is that happier employees = happier customers = successful companies (and meaningful lives)—and she can prove it with science. Jenn and Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh co-founded Delivering Happiness, a company to inspire science-based happiness, passion and purpose at work, home and in everyday life. She created the Zappos Culture Book, an embodiment of how companies can use happiness as a business model to increase productivity and profitability, and has traveled to over 30 countries to speak on this equation and most importantly, share the practical ways of HOW this equation works.
