About Jordan Belfort

As the owner of Stratton Oakmont, Belfort employed over 1,000 stockbrokers and raised over $1.5 billion and started more than 30 million-dollar-companies from scratch.

He’s acted as a consultant to more than fifty public companies, and has been written about in virtually every major newspaper and magazine in the world, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The London Times, The Herald Tribune, Le Monde, Corriere della Serra, Forbes, Business Week, Paris Match and Rolling Stone.

Along the way, he succumbed to some of the traps of the high-flying Wall Street lifestyle, going through a spectacular, and well-publicized, fall from grace. Learning invaluable lessons from his mistakes and money lost, he re-emerged to become a globally recognized potent force behind extraordinary business successes for himself and others.

His life story has even been turned into a major motion picture, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Martin Scorsese.

Jordan’s comprehensive training sessions are designed and customized to meet specific needs. His engagements have ranged from introductory 3-hour talks, to 3-day, in-depth adult learning programs. He has been engaged as a consultant, on an on-going basis, to implement robust programs that actively and massively grow an organization’s marketing and sales results.
