Next week is Focus 2017, our flagship conference that brings together the best and brightest in the industry to discuss the most relevant opportunities for and challenges facing financial professionals today. The conference runs from Sunday, July 30 to Wednesday, August 2. Are you ready?
It is a jam-packed four days of presentations, idea exchange, and fun in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition to hearing from our CEO Dan Arnold and many other members of the LPL team on what we see for the future of the firm and the industry, we have an amazing lineup of guest speakers. Lori Greiner of Shark Tank, the world’s foremost marketing provocateur Seth Godin, and the CEO of The Life is Good Company, Bert Jacobs, are just some of the planned speakers. The musical guest this year is Kelly Clarkson, so get your singing voices warmed up.
If you aren’t able to join the more than 4,000 LPL advisors or 7,000 people in total attending the event, don’t worry—we have you covered. We will be live tweeting many of the highlights as they happen. Be sure to follow LPL Research on Twitter via @LPLResearch, as we’ll have multiple people watching all the presentations and reporting back the most interesting and worthwhile takeaways. Also, we are using the hashtag #LPLFocus, so you can follow all the tweets from everyone there.
What about the LPL Research team? We’ll be presenting as well, with Managing Director, Investor and Investment Solutions and Chief Investment Officer Burt White set to present on the main stage on Wednesday, August 2 in front of more than 7,000 people. Other members of the Research team will be delivering a daily update to help LPL advisors stay connected while at Focus, along with smaller breakout presentations on the Midyear Outlook and more.
