We could not agree more.

Over 50 Consortium Members—LPL Financial and IFG Advisory, LLC financial advisors and staff—converged upon the Grand Hyatt Atlanta Hotel in Buckhead for our educational retreat held January 16-17th. Integrated Financial Group’s 2014 Consortium Retreat is considered to be the highlight for the year among our advisor members. It represents the essence of the Consortium—The Brain Trust.

Advisor presentations and panels throughout the two-day event focused on enhancing advisor communication skills through “storytelling.” The challenge advisors often face is sharing complex ideas in an easy-to-understand mode.
