Rhinebeck Businesswoman Selected to Speak at National Barron’s Conference


Rhinebeck, New York
……Vicki L. Haak, CFP®, village of Rhinebeck resident and business owner, received the honor of being selected to speak at the Barron’s Independent Women Summit from May 15-17, 2019. The professional development conference, which was held at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida, attracted over 150 female professionals from throughout the United States. The topic of Haak’s panel discussion was “Exceptional Experience: Creating Unique and Defined Value for Your Clients.”

Said Haak, “It was an extraordinary honor to be surrounded by powerhouse women who have set an example for anyone wanting to carve out their own paths or pursue high-level leadership roles. Each one of us has our own story, and when we are willing to share that story, the hope is that we can unlock the potential of someone – or many – in the audience.”
