TOPIC #1: Pathways to Growth
SPEAKER: Leah Ryan

About the presentation: In our Pathways to Growth: 2023 Advisor Benchmark Study, we surveyed more than 1,500 advisors to identify the behaviors and skills that helped drive double the growth at select practices.

Together we’ll learn more about the survey findings and identify potential areas of optimization for your practice.
