Inspirational & Thought Provoking

An engaging talk on how inheritances are transforming lives, culture and Canada itself.




Keynote Speaker, Dr. Tom Deans
Intergenerational Wealth Expert

Over the next 20 years, Canadians will have $1 trillion passed on to them as inheritance. Award-winning speaker and Globe and Mail bestselling author Dr. Tom Deans explains how this unprecedented wealth transfer will transform lives, culture, and Canada itself. Thought provoking and contrarian, Dr. Deans inspires his audiences to cast an eye forward to their own future as both beneficiaries and benefactors.

Dr. Deans is the President of Détente Financial Press, specializing in offering advanced executive training for financial institutions, charities as well legal and accounting firms. Previously, he worked in banking, was a CEO of a multinational for almost a decade, was the president of a railway, and chaired a federal government committee on tax credits.

He is the author of the international bestseller, Every Family’s Business, which has sold more than 1 million copies in 100 countries to date. His latest book, Willing Wisdom, represents a return to his doctoral research conducted in the US, Canada, and the UK.

Dr. Deans has been featured in numerous magazines and journals including Profit, Money Sense, Investment Executive and The New York Times. He is also a frequent guest on CBC, MoneyLine and BNN on succession planning, intergenerational wealth transfers and philanthropic giving.

Dr. Deans’ keynotes are about bringing into focus the importance of preparing the next generation to risk capital to become authentic owners. By putting skin-in-the-game, Next Gens earn the right to drive change and innovation on their terms and to take their business to the next level.

Dr. Deans doesn’t just theorize on this subject, he shares a 100- year story about how four generations of his family have started, grown and ultimately sold their businesses for more than $100 million.
