Chris Clarke, CPA, R.F.P, TEP is author of True Family Wealth: Love, Money and an Inspired Life. Chris’s talk inspires audiences to view their wealth (regardless of how much money they have), family and future in a new way, and transform their relationship with all three … ultimately creating TRUE family wealth.
As CEO of First Affiliated Holdings Inc., a Family Office wealth management firm in Collingwood, Mississauga and Halifax, Chris and her team work with clients to grow and preserve both their family wealth AND unity. For over 30 years, Chris has seen families empowered OR destroyed by attitudes about money. She has developed a vast arsenal of real-life experience and practical strategies through professional practice – and her own family’s journey from the rat race, ill health and as victims of a devastating crime…to living their dream life in the Beaver Valley. Chris shares these strategies in her book, with her clients, and through speaking engagements across Canada.
Chris recognizes that most families are experiencing an uncomfortable paradigm shift from an old economy based on materialistic consumption, to a new economy built on the values of sustainability. Statistics indicate kids won’t have the kind of life their parents had, but most of them don’t want it anyway! Chris’s evolutionary Family Treasury™ process offers families the tools they need to navigate this challenging time, to ensure every family member can thrive – and live the lives they love.
