Helaine was an exceptional consultant and moderator for a series of public programs at the International Center of Photography. Concurrent with Lauren Greenfield’s photography exhibition “Generation Wealth,” these programs focused on debt, money, spending, and how media and photography reflect and portray money in America today. Helaine was communicative, proactive, and, perhaps most importantly, possess extensive knowledge on financial policy, journalism, and talking to the public about money. She not only moderated a panel discussion at our ICP Museum, but she guided us toward exciting and interesting panelists to round out the conversation. As a moderator, she was engaging and directed on the stage, which is truely rare! Book Helaine for your next speaking engagement and you won’t regret it. — Nicole Stengel Restaino, International Center of Photography
