Apex 2017: Inspiring Discussions at the Crossroads of Health and Wealth


Apex 2017: Inspiring Discussions at the Crossroads of Health and Wealth

At HighTower, we are firm believers that financial success is not an end-goal in and of itself, but rather a catalyst to achieving an extraordinary quality of life. We also know that the connection between financial health and overall wellness is profound.

That’s why this week, the HighTower community will gather in San Francisco for our third Apex summit. As you might expect, we will hear from visionaries and innovators in our industry, financial services. But we also invited a number of speakers with compelling stories and insights to share on leading a fulfilling life. Here’s a peek at our roster:

  • Opening keynote from former NASA astronaut Captain Scott Kelly on his epic year in space
  • Jacquelline Fuller, Vice President, Google and President of, on philanthropy and the Art of Giving
  • Kyle Maynard, mountaineer, ESPY Award-winning athlete, motivational speaker and the only congenital amputee to ascend both Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Aconcagua unassisted, who will share his inspiring story and “no excuses” philosophy and principles
  • Jim Kwik, one of the world’s leading experts in speed-reading, memory improvement, and optimal mental fitness on “A Mind Unobstructed: Memory = Money”
  • Futurist Amy Webb, who identifies emerging trends and maps how they’ll transform the future of business, international relations, culture and the world, on “The Future of Finance”
  • Jenn Lim, CEO and CHO (Chief Happiness Officer) of Delivering Happiness, on the science of happiness and how to inspire passion and purpose at work, home and in everyday life
  • Two-time Olympic marathoner Alan Culpepper, who will participate in a discussion and also lead a 5K fun run for Apex attendees to benefit three incredible charities: Defy Ventures, The Honor Foundation, and Veterans of America

For the first time this year, we’re collaborating with LinkedIn to amplify Apex conversations using LinkedIn’s Storyline feature. Those of you coming to Apex can share posts to the Storyline before, during and after the event. You can post photos, favorite quotes from our speakers and even articles of your own (write them here) from the sharebox at the top of the Storyline, or from your own LinkedIn feed using the #HTApex hashtag.

If you won’t be with us in San Francisco, we invite you to follow along on LinkedIn. You can also join the Apex conversation on social media using the hashtags #HTApex, #UnobstructedLife, and #BeyondFiduciary, and by following HighTower on TwitterFacebook and LinkedIn. will be there covering the event with our video team.
