We designed this program to be highly engaging while removing any intimidation factor so that all investors feel welcome at the table.”

Gessel will be joined by Justin Nielsen, Market Research Director at IBD; Irusha Peiris, Product Manager of MarketSmith; David Saito-Chung, Deputy Markets Director at IBD; Ed Carson, IBD News Editor; Ken Shreve, IBD Senior Markets Writer; and Mike Webster, Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager with O’Neil Capital Management, Inc.
