A once-in-a-lifetime experience for the top leaders of the Leadership Network was on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

Our private reception, hosted by World Financial Group (WFG) and Transamerica, happened on the evening after the exchange had closed which created an amazing environment for just under 50 of us.

During the day the NYSE is such a loud, rambunctious and crowded place full of action and deals being made but we had the surreal experience of having the place quiet, empty and all to ourselves.

I still feel the energy from the day but to be there in the evening with all of the equipment, trading machines and all of the largest financial firms in the world having had a run of the place, was almost like being a kid at Disneyland with all of the rides available to just us.
