GENERAL SESSION SPEAKERS 
In the 1990s, Jordan Belfort built one of the most dynamic and successful sales organizations in Wall Street history, earning over $50 million a year -- a feat that coined him the name "The Wolf of Wall Street." After going through a spectacular-and well-publicized-fall from grace, Belfort has re-emerged as a globally recognized potent force behind extraordinary business success. This November, his life story will be played out in a major motion picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Martin Scorsese. Sponsored by Dow AgroSciences
 
Freakonomics author Stephen Dubner addresses the fact that the old rules of business just don't apply. It's a new world, and that demands a new way of thinking. During this presentation, he will address the sort of topics that are on every business person's mind these days: the ways to create behavior change, the incentives that work and don't work, and the value of asking unpopular questions. This is a not-to-be-missed session for every business person at PestWorld! Sponsored by FMC
