2018 LPL Focus Conference

We recently had the great privilege to attend the 2018 LPL Focus conference in Boston, Massachusetts (July 29- August 1, 2018). The Focus Conference is LPL Financial's flagship education, growth and networking event for advisors and their staff.  The conference features an expo which provides an opportunity for us to make meaningful connections with partners from approximately 130 sponsor companies and LPL Home Office resources. These are the connections that help us help our clients with the best, most modern resources and insights available. It is always exciting to meet people in person who we previously had only interacted with by phone or email. Each day of the conference featured a variety of informative educational sessions. In addition to excellent educational and networking sessions, highlights of our trip included: a rock concert at Boston's Blue Hills venue on the harbor, a motivational session with highly charismatic multimillion speaker Jesse Itzler (husband of Sara Blakely, billionaire founder of Spanks), and hearing LPL's featured guest speaker, former UK prime minister David Cameron. The 2018 LPL Focus was an unforgettable experience and we can't wait to share what we learned with you!
