The summit was well worth the day spent outside of my office.
It was really an excellent day. For the price, I felt like I got a tremendously valuable day.
loved this event. The people were so open. The team was always so engaged and generous. Speakers, fantastic!
It was nice to attend an event with so many women. The whole event felt organized, thought out, and was well executed.
Everything was great! It was a wonderful opportunity to network with other women in the financial advice business and I left with several takeaways that I can use to improve our own business right away.
It was a great networking experience and I appreciated the entire event. Thank you!
I gained the confidence that my business can look like whatever I desire. I do not HAVE to work with just women or just men, but it can be any or all together, depending on who I work with best and am excited to have as clients!
I'm really glad I participated. I came away feeling energized.
I really enjoyed learning about how to encourage women in the industry.
It was great to walk into a summit that was not all men and a handful of women. Better yet, the women were all different ages.
For nearly four years, the Women Adviser Summit has hosted over 700 women across the country with the goal of investing in their business, their brand and themselves, all while collaborating and networking with like-minded peers. Join in on the experience!
