NEXT Financial Group, Inc. (NEXT) is hosting our National Educational Conference in the renowned city of Las Vegas this year. This highly-anticipated event is where our valued Representatives come together to network with one another, hear from influencers in the financial services realm and receive the latest insights on trending industry topics.
No matter how many conferences you attend this year, big or small, there are several things you can remember to help you get the most out of your experience.
The NEC is an outlet for attendees to not only brush up on their current skill sets through informative breakout sessions, but also learn a few new practices to bring back to their firm. By providing over 60 presentations on all things financial services, NEXT wants to be sure that each Representative can explore any avenue they wish to.
At any conference you attend, make sure to look over the session offerings thoroughly and try choosing presentations to attend that introduce a new concept you may have never explored. Make sure to take notes to remember what you’ve learned.
Every year, a majority of NEXT Representatives travel from far and wide to attend the NEC. This presents a wonderful opportunity for networking that may have seemed out of reach to take place.
Whether you are looking to enter a new market or are curious about a certain technology, chances are you will meet someone at the conference who has experience in your topic of interest or someone who is in the same boat as you. Also, feel free to pass your business card along to speakers or panelists to gain an industry specialists’ insight as well!
What makes NEXT unique is the Rep-focused values that have been cultivated since 1998. This event is truly where the company culture comes alive and where the NEXT family comes together.
However, the enthusiasm of the conference does not have to end when you get home. Make sure to continue following up with connections made at the conference and maintain relationships that can help you stay on track throughout the year.
