This fall, New York Times best-selling author Dan Solin will speak at the College of Charleston’s School of Business Think Differently Forum. This biannual event, meant to inspire new ways of thinking and encourage debates among the Charleston community, is open to the public and will be held on October 24 at 7 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Auditorium of the Beatty Center.
Solin will discuss the lessons he’s learned from a long career in the finance industry, challenging attendees to put a high valuation on first impressions, emphasizing the importance of empathy and debunking popular investment myths. Solin is the author of the “Smartest” book series, including The Smartest Investment Book You’ll Ever Read and The Smartest Portfolio You’ll Ever Own. After his presentation, Solin will open the floor up to questions from the audience.
The event will be moderated by this year’s Think Differently Scholars — Julia Lines, Annie Simpson, Owais Jadoon and Neith Stone. When asked what drew these business students to become involved with the forum, they cited their shared desire to create an environment that fosters critical thinking and benefits the campus community.
