Every advisor could use a little inspiration. Every advisor could use some support. Every advisor could definitely use a break from the office. Every year since 2001, hundreds of advisors have met at Excell to share their triumphs, challenges and goals, and walk away with new connections, valuable takeaways and more inspiration than they can handle. It’s the go-to conference for forward-thinking advisors that are ready to take their firms to the next level. But it’s important to note – this isn’t your typical industry conference. Excell is created with the advisor in mind to help you reset the way you work and continue to build the firm you want. Because I know how much advisors and their teams will benefit from attending Excell 2019, I put together a list of 100 reasons you won’t want to miss out on Excell this year:

  • Learn how to provide an outstanding client experience that will turn your prospects into clients, and your clients into raving fans
  • Be inspired by Michael Dubin, ­­­­Founder and CEO of Dollar Shave Club, who grew and sold his business for $1 billion in just 5 years
  • It’s only $649 and if you click here to register now, you could get a photo opportunity with Michael Dubin himself (you know, the guy from reason #2)
