Recently a number of Crest Financial Services’ staff members attended AMP’s Advice Summit for 2018 at the Sydney International Convention Centre, to listen to a variety of speakers and their inspiration for personal development, leadership enhancements and practical skills.

Over the course of three days, advisers Paul Howden, Rhys Higgins, Patrick Hancock, and Andrew Thomas; advice consultant Kerry Howden; and paraplanners Jessica Deamer, Tegan Delmoro, Jake Muras, Mitchell Brown, and Richard Ryan all attended growth and focus sessions and a number of plenaries aimed at providing stimulus for business growth.

Some of the world-class plenary speakers at the event included CEO and Managing Director of the Qantas group, Alan Joyce; ex-AFL player, Adam Goodes; and CEO and founding partner of United Capital, Joe Duran. Other speakers at the event included founder and Creative Director at Glasshouse Candles, Nicole Eckels; and founder of Boost Juice Bars, Janine Allis.

TFC Financial in Toowoomba was also named Charter Financial Planning’s National Practice of the Year award winner at the event.  While Crest Financial Services missed out on the award, we are pleased to see Chris Manthey and his team recognized for their work. Crest Financial Services was a finalist for the national award after receiving the NSW/ACT Practice of the Year award for 2017.

Conferences such as the Advice Summit are great for our team at Crest Financial Services as it provides inspiration for even more ways we can provide excellent financial planning advice to our clients.
