“Circle of Impact” is the new book from leadership consultant and keynote speaker Ed Brenegar. Ed is a fellow Triiibes member; Triiibes is a group of marketing enthusiasts and professionals founded by bestselling author Seth Godin back in 2008. Ed’s work is focused on people “in transition”, helping them to find the strength and confidence to make a difference, in their own lives as much as in the lives of others.
Thesis of the book is that everyone is born with the capacity to lead. Ed’s book teaches that leadership isn’t a position of authority, but a personal responsibility that anyone can learn. His “Circle of Impact” model is a problem solving tool everyone can use to create the change they wish to make.

Here is another event that will be hard to miss: the European Chapter of the International Precious Metals Institute (IPMI) will be hosting its annual seminar in Budapest / Hungary from November 12 – 13 this year. I had the pleasure of attending last year’s seminar in Prague which was sold out. Presentations were very good (not just because I was speaking), and there was plenty of time to get to meet people who don’t typically attend the IPMI’s U.S. based summer conferences.
If you are pondering to attend I suggest you decide quickly because space is, once again, limited. Event title is “7 Precious Metals” and – spoiler alert – I will be talking about something completely different.
Head over to http://www.ec-ipmi.org/index.php/next-events-title/8-events/16-budapest-2018-seminar to learn more, and to register.
Hope to see you all there!
It’s finally happening! Tonight, we’ll kick off the “Precious Metals and Mobility” Symposium in New Brunswick, New Jersey. A few updates:
We know several of you are not having fun traveling today with the storm going on in our area. So please note that the Welcome Reception tonight has been moved to 7pm (was 6pm), and we’ll save you a drink.
Also, please view or download the final version of the event program here. Note the times, rooms, and the one speaker change on Tuesday.
We look forward to seeing everyone at The Heldrich tonight.
It’s finally happening: IPMI’s first symposium on the transformation of the automotive industry will start April 16. We have an exciting slate of speakers covering many different aspects of this topic. Sign up now as space is limited (seriously, the room will hold 90 people max).
Kitco News will provide news coverage, and it looks like we’ll have Tesla Model 3 to check out on Wednesday. Don’t miss out – hope to see you next month in East Brunswick.

With a month to go, time for a reminder of this event. Strategic metals are still a relatively new investment group for private investors. To provide in-depth information on the metals, their applications and price developments, I will be speaking at the “Retire Overseas” conference in Orlando, Florida, on behalf of Tradium GmbH of Germany.
Tradium is a large industrial wholesaler supplying electronics and technology companies around the world with Rare Earth Elements and Strategic Metals. The company added private investments just a few years ago and backed it up by launching Metlock, a bonded high-security storage facility in Frankfurt, Germany.
The conference is hosted by Kathleen Peddicord and Lief Simon, who for many years have offered services and education surrounding retirement and investment planning.
