Kristi and Kelli showing off their virtual conference setups.
The months of August and September have been busy ones at CSi, as we’ve been preparing for and attending five industry conferences. In normal times, our team would be all over the country attending conferences that have now gone virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the experience may not look the same as it has in years past; the knowledge, meaningful connections and innovative ideas we gather from each conference remain just as strong.
Although they keep us busy, we participate in these events because education is one of our main pillars here at CSi. Why? Because for both our clients and our staff, when it comes to something as personal and significant as finances, you can never be too knowledgeable.
The topics our advisors learn and discuss with industry colleagues at conferences is an invaluable resource on their journey of continuing education. It strengthens their ability to make informed decisions, stay ahead of trends and changes in the industry, and helps ensure they are providing innovative strategies and intelligent guidance to their clients.
This year, our President and Managing Partner Kristi Baker, and Vice President of Retirement Plan Consulting, Kelli Davis, had the opportunity to speak at three of the five conferences. Watching Kristi and Kelli deliver their presentations reminded our team how appreciative we are to be led by such insightful and in-demand individuals. Additionally, we are proud of their efforts to further solidify CSi’s position as a thought leader in our industry.
