Successful Generations President and Founder Ellie Frey Zagel has been speaking to audiences across the country since her early twenties. She specializes in talks about being part of the next generation of family philanthropy—something she is very well versed in a 3rd generation board member of her family’s foundation. Ellie also speaks about being the next generation of family business.
She has spoken to large and small groups, college classrooms, accountants, lawyers, family business, family foundations, and families of wealth. Her favorite audiences are those who participate in the content through questions and story sharing. Ellie likes to create mini-peer groups wherever she speaks, so audience members can continue the conversation long after she’s left the room.
