The Wolf of Wall Street to Advise Georgians How to Do it Better

“No matter what happened to you in your past, you are not your past, you are the resources and the capabilities you glean from it. And that is the basis for all change.” – Jordan Belfort.

Jordan Belfort has already proved the verity of his words by his life work and will prove them again to Georgians here, in their homeland, on November 28th. For the first time Georgia will host the worlds’ one of the most successful motivational speakers, entrepreneur, author Jordan Belfort aka The Wolf of Wall Street. In the 1990s, Belfort built one of the most dynamic sales organizations in Wall Street history. Accordingly, he soared financially and reached the highest points. He would earn over $50 million a year, a feat that coined him the name “The Wolf of Wall Street.” As the owner of Stratton Oakmont, Belfort employed over 1,000 stockbrokers, earnt over $1.5 billion and started more than 30 million-dollar companies from scratch. He’s served as a consultant in more than fifty public companies. Every major newspaper and magazine in the world, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The London Times, The Herald Tribune, Le Monde, Corriere della Serra, Forbes, Business Week, Paris Match and Rolling Stone have written about him. During that time, he succumbed to some of the traps of the high-flying Wall Street lifestyle, going through a spectacular—and well-publicized—fall from grace. Taking invaluable lessons from the mistakes he made and the prices he paid, he has re-emerged as a globally recognized powerful force behind extraordinary business success. Today, his proprietary Straight Line System enables him to take virtually any company or individual, regardless of age, race, sex, educational background or social status, and empower them to create massive wealth, abundance, and entrepreneurial success, without sacrificing integrity or ethics. Jordan’s two international bestselling memoirs, The Wolf of Wall Street and Catching the Wolf of Wall Street, have been published in over forty countries and translated into eighteen languages. His life story was made into a motion picture by Academy Award winning director Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Georgia Today met Salome Kukava, Project Manager of the master class and Corporate Communications Manager of Alliance Group Holding, the company which is organizing the Jordan Belfort master class in Tbilisi and talked to her about the event.

Q: How did the idea to bring Jordan Belfort to Georgia come about?

A: We are devoted to raising the literacy of people involved in business, as well as ordinary citizens. Any citizen should realise that saving capital is crucial. It should be diversified. The most common way to save is through banking deposits. There are also other alternative sources though, like bonds, company’s stocks, etc. In this regard we regularly organize various trainings and master classes in Georgia. As we are witnessing some progressive steps towards the development of the capital market, we decided to invite the “Wolf” of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort, to Tbilisi. He will be sharing his extensive experience with the audience. Incidentally, due to the high level of interest in Belfort, we have decided to hold his master class in Tbilisi’s Philharmonic Hall.

The project is being implemented in line with the CSR activities of AGH. Taking care of future generations and contributing to economic and social development forms the groundwork of all our activities. Bringing up a new generation in line with ethical business standards is one of our main goals. In this regard we have been actively cooperating with leading universities for years. The price of admission to the Wolf of Wall Street’s master-class was determined with these circumstances in mind. Therefore, the cost is unprecedentedly low. A total of 677 students will be attending the seminar for the competitive price of just USD 29. We are glad to see such hugh interest from students. By the time the deadline for registration had passed, more than 850 students had already signed up for it. The cost of tickets for business representatives range from USD 109 to USD 279. Jordan Belfort is one of the most exclusive trainers in the world. If we look at the prices of tickets from Belfort’s previous world tours we see that the cost stated in Tbilisi is really very reasonable. Therefore, we call upon everyone to take advantage of this unique chance and not to miss the highest rated master-class of the year being held in Tbilisi.

The topic of the master class itself is of utmost importance – the Straight-line persuasion and sales techniques is essential nowadays for everyone raging from students to businesses. This 5-hour training will give our Georgian fellows the best possible assets. The business sector is very keen on attending and we hope that Belfort’s master class will help Georgian business to move forward.

Q: How difficult was it to persuade Belfort to come to Georgia?

A: It was very, very difficult. He knew almost nothing about our country. It took several months to get him to agree to come, but we did not give up and made him say a final YES! Jordan Belfort is one of the highest rated speakers in the world. He holds 5-6 master classes annually in different cities around the globe. Sales managers, marketing leaders, branding experts, business development managers, and management specialists are welcomed to such master classes. Using his signature direct, humorous and passionate style, Jordan will train up to 2300 attendees in Tbilisi Concert Hall on how to use the most powerful business system ever devised. The results speak for themselves.

On November 28th, Belfort will be delivering his master class on:

1) The FOUR core elements of the inner game of sales. (These four elements are absolutely essential to your success. If you lack even one of them, you will end up sabotaging your own success!)

2) How to achieve instant rapport with your prospects and how to use that rapport to gain massive intelligence. (Your prospects will be predisposed to trusting you, so they’ll tell you what their highest values are and where their pain lies.)

3) The art and science of Straight Line prospecting. (You’ll learn how to develop a multimillion-dollar sales pipeline free of tire-kickers, so never waste time again.)

4) The four key elements to creating ethical presentations that actually close the deal. (To be blunt, most sales presentations are totally misguided and actually stop you from closing the deal.)

5) How to instantly squash objections and limiting buying beliefs, turning skeptics into buyers. (This proprietary belief-busting technique is the secret sauce of the Straight Line System, and will empower your clients to make positive buying decisions).

6) The secret to closing calmly and consistently every single time without even the slightest bit of high pressure. (It’s elegant, it’s classy, and it’s ridiculously effective.)

7) The ten-step formula for building a never-ending stream of customer referrals and creating customers for life. (You’ll make your life a thousand times easier with this proven, paint-by-numbers formula)

8) How to raise money through Venture Capital and Angel Investors, so you can start using Other People’s Money to fund your ideas and grow your business.

9) The step-by-step process of Straight Line Negotiating, including the seven magic words that allow you to get the lowest price every time)

10) And, again, this is just the beginning. Once you’ve been through Jordan’s Straight Line Persuasion training, you will be literally unstoppable!
