Speaking Topics
  • Economic Opportunity for All.

    Opportunity is one of our country’s most cherished ideals and one of our most valuable national assets. However, the promise of opportunity seems like more of a broken promise to many Americans. They feel overwhelmed by barriers that are limiting them from reaching their full economic potential. In this inspiring speech, Dara Duguay talks about the many financial decisions (payday lending, rent-to-own, no retirement plan, etc.) that often trap people in a vicious cycle of debt and poverty. Thankfully, this fate is not predetermined. Duguay lays out the smart financial choices that Americans can make, regardless of their income level, in order to set them on the path to achieve Economic Opportunity for All.

  • Building Resilience through the Challenges of Unemployment.

    Our job market continues to suffer. There are still too many job seekers and not enough jobs. The competition for these scarce jobs can take a toll on the job seeker’s self-confidence, which in turn hampers their interview performance. In this presentation, Dara Duguay draws from her own life experience after being laid-off from a senior management position at Citigroup during the height of the financial crisis. Her journey and those of her laid-off colleagues and friends taught her what it takes to succeed in today’s difficult job market. Learn the secrets of staying resilient and maintaining a positive attitude after receiving multiple rejections. Understand the changes in the hiring process that have resulted in multiple interviews, long recruitment time periods, examinations, requests for business/ marketing/ strategic plans. And the lack of closure, as non-communication becomes the new norm. These realities make it more important than ever to learn how to be “resilient” and stay in the game and not become a discouraged worker statistic.

  • Young Adults: Leaving the Nest… Only to Return.

    Young adults are hit by a double whammy in today’s economy. College graduates are leaving school with overwhelming levels of student loan debt and are confronting a soft job market with too few good paying jobs. This phenomenon has led countless young adults to move back home, primarily for economic reasons. In this presentation Dara Duguay covers all the necessary financial strategies to help young adults through these challenging times. It gives parents and caregivers solid tips to avoid a culture of dependency but still provide the support that allows young adults to build up the discipline and skills to eventually live independently.
