Showtime. The Power of Story.

If you have a great story to tell, then you need to know how to tell it. Whether you rely on a pitchbook, presentation or conversation to win new business, your story needs to be concise, compelling and consistent, and it needs to be told with conviction and skill. "Showtime" is specifically designed to help high-net-worth (HNW) and ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) advisors refine their stories for prospective affluent investors, institutions and multi-generational families. The key teaching points are based on over 2000 presentations with over 250 HNW and UHNW institutional teams and on the largest study every done on the language of financial services.
