Top financial professionals in the Southern California area are invited to attend this unique educational event.
Saxon, who has produced such films as the Silence of the Lambs and Adaptation, is speaking as part of a national tour on the "The Power of Story," an event series designed to educate financial professionals on the importance of narrative in client relationships.The event is presented by eMoney Advisorand supports their ongoing commitment to provide innovative resources for financial advisors to improve their practice.
"The race is on," said Edmond Walters, CEO and founder of eMoney Advisor. "Competition for a greater share of wallet is growing among advisors as well as DIY websites that offer financial services and advice."
Walters continued to say that the advisors who will win the race are those who learn how to quiet the competition by differentiating themselves. So, like many of the most innovative brands across America, financial professionals are taking a page from the world's best storytellers, Hollywood filmmakers, and learning how to connect with their clients through story.
"Clients, like all rest of us, want to see their stories come to life. It's why we love great movieswe relate to them,"said Saxon at The Power of Story presentation in Philadelphia earlier this year.
After listening to Saxon's presentation, advisors will better understand the role that storytelling plays in fostering client relationships and learn how to cast themselves and their clients as the protagonists in each unique "plot," or real life financial events.
"The world is flooded with messagesor stories, if you willall competing for top billing," Saxon continued. "The most successful advisors will be those who embrace the opportunity to storify their relationship with their clients and, in the process, create the most compelling of all narratives."
