Video: Keynote Speaker, Chris Mathers

“I spent my entire life in the company of criminals,” said Chris Mathers, the Tuesday morning General Session speaker. “Two things I learned: People do not steal your money to save it. And … people typically do not resort to criminality late in life. It’s not like taking up golf. It’s something you do from the very beginning. Mathers is the founder of CHRIS MATHERS INC.
