The seminar, entitled 'The Art of the Steal," is sponsored by United Capital Management, and will be presented from 2-4 p.m. that afternoon at Sams Chapel at Kansas Wesleyan University.

For over 30 years, he has lectured to, and consulted with, hundreds of financial institutions, corporations and government agencies around the world. His life story was the subject of a major motion picture entitled "Catch Me If You Can," directed by Steven Spielberg,starring Leonardo DeCaprio and Tom Hanks.

"Mr. Abagnale has a unique set of personal experiences on these issues, from both sides of the fence. His specialized knowledge of these subjects will be enormously valuable to anyone attending the semiar and banquet, and his story-telling will captivate them."
