Momentum Media has announced the theme and line-up of speakers for its ground-breaking ifa Business Strategy Day roadshow in March 2017.
The celebrated event, which was launched in 2015, will this year focus on the twin themes of profitability and scale, helping advisers and practice principals to grow their bottom line, set business goals and exceed them.
Some of Australia’s leading business minds and financial advice industry figures will take to the stage, including business coaches Sue Viskovic, Stewart Bell and Danielle Cornelissen, alongside compliance expert Brett Walker and top sales trainer Stuart Ayling. Panels of practising advisers and thought leaders will also be held, tackling the industry’s thorniest issues.
ifa managing editor and Business Strategy Day MC Aleks Vickovich said the event will provide advisers with important content they cannot find elsewhere.
“So many advice conferences have become mired in lectures on policy detail and ‘professionalism’, with no regard or respect for the fact that despite all the regulatory and educational requirements, advice practices are still businesses and should be focused on profit and growth,” Mr Vickovich said.
“The ifa Business Strategy Day 2017 will reject the orthodoxy of the modern advice conference, replacing motivational speeches and politicians’ spin with real, actionable intelligence to build growth-focused, successful advice businesses in the digital age.”
Specific topics include building a scalable service proposition and pricing structure, minimising your compliance burden, setting profit goals and beating them, adapting to technological and political change, outsourcing and driving efficiencies to spend more time with clients and how to sell your value proposition effectively as a professional.
