developed permanent nerve damage
that caused a tremor in his right hand.
After a physician suggested he embrace
his limitations, Hansen decided he would
not allow a negative belief to control his
life and would find new ways to create
art by rethinking his tools, techniques
Education, Connection, Inspiration
Hansen’s presentation included stories
of other individuals who embraced their
limitations to live fuller lives and images
of artwork he created using handwritten
overcomer stories, broken vinyl records,
Starbucks’ coffee cups, matches and burger
wrappers. To get a glimpse of Hansen’s
inspiration, see his popular TedTalk video.
Following Hansen’s keynote, Kirk Hulett,
executive vice president of Strategy and
Practice Management, moderated a panel
of Securities America staff from various
departments who responded to audience
questions and shared their own best
practices, tips and powerful ideas.
Educational sessions across three different tracks filled the rest of the day
leading up to roundtable discussions. With 16 topics to choose from, attendees
participated in three 25-minute discussions led by Securities America experts. To
share helpful information with attendees who weren’t able to join their roundtable,
facilitators contributed a few of their best tips related to their subject, which were
compiled into a 14-page booklet that was distributed to all attendees.
