Highlights of AFA 2015 National Adviser Conference

“This was my first time attending an AFA conference and I was very impressed. I am happy if I walk away from a conference with one or two suggestions for improvement.  I came away with one or two ideas from each session!

The First Timers sessions was a fantastic way to get to meet others. The diversity of speakers and topics was great, the people were friendly and welcoming and I also loved the ease and user friendliness of the Conference App.

This would be the best conference that I have attended.  I will definitely be attending in future and have already been encouraging colleagues to attend next year as well.”

“This year’s AFA conference was very well organised – from the content through to the exhibition hall. It was extremely encouraging to have the AFA supporting adviser engagement with innovation and fin–tech in support of their members and the potential benefits to their business. The inaugural ‘Meet the Innovators’ session was an excellent example of this and an opportunity for the industry to get a close understanding of how technology can compliment Financial Advice in many ways. This should not be taken lightly and credit should go directly to the AFA for introducing this! We look forward to next year’s event.”
