CFE's Finance and Investment Exchange invites you to join us for an inspiring and fun evening with Alpana Singh, Master Sommelier, television personality and entrepreneur. The event will include wine tasting demonstration as Alpana leads a discussion on how life, like wine, should be celebrated with age. The presentation will be focused on women in leadership positions, but also on our professional, social and family relationships; to recognize how we consciously and subconsciously view aging. Like wine, it should be positively.

A young untested lawyer named Paul Cravath, fresh out of Columbia Law School, takes a case that seems impossible to win. Paul’s client, George Westinghouse, has been sued by Thomas Edison over a billion-dollar question: Who invented the light bulb and holds the right to power the country?
