Past Speakers and Presidents

Distinguished Guest Speakers

When DSPP began we consulted with a number of New York analysts. We told them how fortunate we thought they were with so many institutes and training opportunities. They said we were the fortunate ones. We were starting fresh and could invite the best teachers from around the world and were free from the constraints of the local talent. We did just that and have been blessed with thoughtful and exciting presentations from which our community continues to draw inspiration and deep learning.
