Featured Speaker: Justin Jones, Prudential – “Money Matters Game Show”

justin.jonesThe North Shore Business Forum meets on Friday, July 17, 2015 at Acapulcos, 900 Cummings Center, Beverly, MA. Justin Jones, a financial advisor with Prudential in Wakefield, MA, will emcee the “Money Matters Game Show,” as small business owners get timely pointers on financial planning topics like retirement, estate planning, long-term care and life insurance. Registration begins at 7:15 AM, the meeting runs from 7:30 to 8:30. Admission is $10 at the door, and includes a buffet breakfast.

About the Speaker: As a financial advisor with Prudential in Wakefield, MA, Justin Jones offers comprehensive financial planning based around key life events like starting a family, changing jobs, retiring and protecting wealth for generations. He looks to break the mold of the traditional, boring financial advisor by bringing fun and enthusiasm into his work (as well as an ever-changing wardrobe of vividly colored shirts and an equally vibrant personality).

Prior to launching his financial practice in 2009, Justin spent 11 years in software development, much of that time as a test engineer for Microsoft in Redmond, WA. Born and raised on the North Shore, Justin has an eight-year-old son, Timmy, whose baseball team he coaches. He supports his alma mater, Boston University, by holding season tickets for the BU Terriers hockey team. An avid networker, Justin has been a member of the North Shore Business Forum for the past four years.

The North Shore Business Forum

The North Shore Business Forum, Inc (NSBF) is a group of small business owners from Boston’s North Shore who meet for informal lectures given by business leaders on a wide variety of topics. Members are also invited to give their 30-second “elevator pitch.” All business owners are welcome: future, past, profitable, experienced or beginning. The NSBF meets the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. (registration starts at 7:15) at Acapulco’s, 900 Cummings Center, Beverly, MA. The $10 meeting fee includes networking, a featured presentation, and breakfast buffet.

No pre-registration required, but your RSVP on our Meetup page is appreciated.

The “Meeting After the Meeting” Returns!

The North Shore Business Forum is re-instituting the concept of having members share their expertise with other members on an informal basis, in brief, no-cost sessions after its Friday morning networking meetings.

If you are an NSBF member with an interest in offering your own “Meeting After the Meeting” session in the future, please see NSBF President Brett Kirkpatrick at one of our meetings, or email him at events@nsbforum.org .

If the Beverly, MA public school system announces a “no school” snow day on one of our scheduled Fridays, then the NSBF meeting for that day will be cancelled. Check the NSBF Facebook page for updates as well. (See our “About NSBF” page for more information.)
