Focus Session Speaker

Focus Sessions provide conference delegates with expert knowledge and insights and address one or more of the AFA Learning pillars. The Learning Pillars address critical issues, challenges and opportunities that contemporary financial advisers often encounter in their professional career:

  • Business Growth: building a successful advice business through high performance, efficiency and best practice
  • Professionalism: raising the standards of excellence to build Australia’s financial adviser profession
  • Advice strategy: Advice know-how and technical strategies to help deliver better outcomes to your clients
  • Innovation: ideas, trends and new technologies to challenge thinking and discover new ways to add business value.

Focus Session formats range from case study presentations, discussion forums or panels or hands-on interactive workshops.

Themes, formats and participants for Focus Sessions are ultimately decided on by the AFA Conference Committee, however we will welcome suggestions via formal submission for consideration in the Focus Session program.
