Refreshment Break and Exhibits
The right activities lead to the right results. If motivated advisors want to grow their practices, they must engage in those activities that will lead to business growth. In this session, we will incorporate the best business development practices, featured in Dave Mullen books, The Million-Dollar Financial Services Practice and The Million-Dollar Financial Advisor. There are eight practices that the most-successful advisors use for client and asset acquisition, and these practices will be shared during this session. Dave's ultimate goal is for the audience to learn how the most successful professionals attract and retain wealthy clients. He will speak about marketing through accountants, being a non-profit leader and going deeper into relationships to make them stronger and more profitable. He will also speak on practice management ideas such as teaming up, hiring the right people and managing your time. This two hour training session for experienced advisors is designed to provide the specific tactics and processes that focus on the how-to, rather than the theory of affluent client acquisition. A handout package will be provided, which contains all the scripts and tools required to implement the provided acquisition strategies.

Breakout Sessions II
Investors tend to interpret the impact of rising interest rates on portfolio performance to mean that only fixed income and fixed income-like (dividend paying common stocks) investments will be negatively impacted. This would be in incorrect interpretation. All intrinsic value investments are impacted by rates in the same manner as rates rise, values (and, subsequently prices) fall.
Investors can take steps to reduce the negative impact that rising rates have on their equity portfolios. This presentation will outline those steps and how we can use proper historical context and analysis to position our equity investments for best advantage.
