NEXT Financial Group Inc. (NEXT) hosted two regional luncheons in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Austin, Texas during the month of August. Attendees had the opportunity to learn about best practices for business growth as well as unique marketing strategies to implement into their own practices.
The events kicked off with a presentation from NEXT’s CMO, Peter Delehanty, over the role marketing plays in helping advisors reach success. Delehanty has 35 years of experience in the field, and he also led an open discussion on how e-marketing has changed the industry’s landscape.
“I always enjoy the opportunity to discuss different ways that marketing can be used to help grow a representative’s business,” said Delehanty. “NEXT’s Marketing Department works diligently to make tools available to enhance the experience for our representatives’ clients.”
