“NexGen Gathering was an unbelievable experience not only did I take away a lot of ideas to implement in my practice but I also got to meet a lot of AMAZING NexGen advisors. As a group we discussed everything from how to move up in your firm, office dynamics and continuing education to utilizing technology, how to market your practice and improving the client experience. The biggest take away for me was the moral support and encouragement to move forward with my ideas and create my dream practice. Since the conference I used many of the ideas we discussed and made vast improvements on my blog and client experience. Overall the gathering was exactly what I needed to recharge my passion and refocus my energy to move forward. The people and the leaders were absolutely amazing and I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity!"
