Who is Marvin? Inventor of the MarvinMatrix™ Algorithm

Plain English Presentation

Stanley Marvin Burnstein has been advising clients and lecturing to financial professionals for over 25 years. Stanley has given more than 200 “performances” on financial subjects during the past twenty years. He has appeared on radio, television and before industry groups. These programs are not lectures, but high-energy, plain English presentations to business and professional organizations nationwide. The response has been overwhelming and his seminars have been well-received at every location. Much of the programs’ success is due to Stanley’s talent for explaining a very technical subject in an easy-to-understand style. That same style is used in his workshops and in his book about stock market investing.   He does not stand at a lectern or table, but steps out into the audience, makes good eye contact, and involves those around him in his presentation. On a 5.0 scale, Stanley has received a mean rating of 4.8 and a median rating of 5.0 on his seminar presentations by the Missouri Society of Certified Public Accountants.
