Keynote Speaker

My first choice for a keynote speaker, at least as of now, would be someone who could give a broad and engaging overview of the many forms of securities fraud. Perhaps Linda Chatman Thomsen, current SEC Director of the Division of Enforcement, might agree to speak (though I have no idea how engaging she might be). Or, perhaps, Arthur Leavitt, former head of the SEC (who lives in my hometown). Or even James Cramer (although he’d probably charge an arm and a leg).



The ballroom can be divided into four sections meaning that four sessions can be held at one time. With two available timeslots, it means I can offer eight different topics of interest.

Here are some proposed sessions and possible speakers:
1. How do market makers make markets? (Someone from NITE)
2. What happens when you file a complaint with the SEC? (Someone from the SEC)
3. How do hedge funds operate? (David Rocker)
4. How does the financial media choose its stories? (Panel of noted journalists)
5. The secret life of cyber vigilantes (Janice Shell, Stock Patrol, StockLemon)
6. Shorts and how to deal with them (Manuel Asensio)
7. Secrets of the Pink Sheets (Cromwell Coulson)


Main Event
Part 1 (short presentation) - How a share of stock gets transferred from one person to another
Part 2 (Town Hall) - Naked Shorting Q&A

A broker
A market maker
A spokesman from the DTC
A spokesman from the NASD
A spokesman from the SEC
A spokesman from NASAA
Someone from NCANs (e.g. “Bob O’Brien”, Dr. Jim DeCosta, David Patch, etc.)
An aggrieved CEO (Patrick Byrne, Rod Young, etc.)
Someone from the media (Gary Weiss)
