“ET,” Dr. Eric Thomas to Keynote 2021 FinServ Expo

Dallas, TX (May 20, 2021) — The Council for Inclusion in Financial Services (CIFS) announces Educator, Best-Selling Author, Motivational Guru and International Business Phenom, Dr. Eric Thomas, as the keynote speaker at the 2021 FinServ Expo, held virtually June 22 – June 23.

ET, as he is better known, has taken the world by storm with his creative style and high-energy messages. His unique brand of pragmatism has made him the “go-to” problem-solver for many of the world’s largest corporations and millions of social media followers. Drawing from his personal experiences of seemingly insurmountable challenges, ET connects with others fighting for greatness while offering insights that help them exchange cycles of failure for patterns of success.

“ET is ideal to move our audience to greater resilience and teamwork, which are essential as we start to recover from the effects of a global pandemic, said Tiffany Fletcher, CIFS Chief Operating Officer. “We are excited to welcome Dr. Eric Thomas to the 2021 FinServ Expo and believe he will fire up our attendees and our industry in this new season.”

A unique gathering, the 2021 FinServ Expo brings together all the players in the financial services industry — from housing and insurance to banking and wealth management with the goal of equipping them to immediately implement measurable shifts in their lives and businesses in an industry that demands agility.

ET is scheduled to speak on June 22nd at 2pCT as the day-one closing session keynote.
