Pre-work is distributed two weeks in advance to prepare advisers to engage in real life discussions related to their practices during the workshop.


The benefits to advisers are that the actions in the workshop are immediately implementable by advisers, the pre-work and workbooks are included and advisers have access to some the Institutes additional tools and resources for a limited period of time.

This program may suit advisers who have recently started to work with affluent families and individuals or those who are looking for an introduction in this space prior to attending a future flagship program.

This program is an extension of the earlier Family Wealth Conversation Adviser Workshop (above), with the additional inclusion of interactive cast studies.  The extension allows the advisers to work through current examples of client or prospective client opportunities, in a confidential manner to ensure they can add immediate value to those relationships.
