Keynote: The Best Advisor in Your Client's Worst Times
Amy Florian
McArthur 4, 5, 6, 7

Amy Florian is the CEO of Corgenius, a company that specializes in training professionals to support clients during the toughest times of life. In our death-denying society, professionals who know what to say and do (and what NOT to say and do) immediately set themselves apart. They offer compassionate and effective support to clients in ways others can't, and it generates lifetime loyalty.

"My enduring passion for this work comes from my own profound experience of grief," Amy says. "On an icy road, my husband died at the age of 25. Our 7-month-old son would never know his father. I was thrust into the role of widow. So few people knew what to say or do to support me."

Her qualifications go far beyond just personal experience. With a Master’s degree and a Fellow in Thanatology (the highest level of certification in death & grief studies), she teaches on both undergraduate and graduate levels. she served as executive director of a non-profit dedicated to finding meaning, hope and peace in the midst of suffering. She facilitates a widowed support group and has worked with over 2000 grieving people. She brings this extensive education and experience to every session she teaches, along with a reputation as a dynamic and engaging presenter.
