Held in San Diego, August 18 to 21, Focus13 was one of the industry’s premier sales and education events for financial professionals. More than 5,700 total attendees from around the country assembled to learn new strategies and skills, expand knowledge in numerous product areas, and network with peers and industry experts. They also heard from influential speakers who addressed current events and financial industry trends. The speakers included Zanny Minton-Beddoes, economic editor of The Economist; Eric Whitacre, Grammy-winning composer, and conductor and creator of the Virtual Choir; and General Colin Powell, one of the most revered Americans of the last quarter century.
“Attending Focus13 provided an exceptional opportunity for me to attend a number of business sessions, technology training sessions and continuing education classes to stay well-informed of financial trends and industry best practices,” says Ms. Staib. “Most importantly, I also discovered strategies to continually improve my communication and engagement with my clients. I represent Main Street not Wall Street" said Ms. Staib. "I have the ability to use any tools available that will help my clients build and protect their financial position."
