Global Conference in Washington, D.C.

105 Delegates, 57 Guests, 51 Firms, 21 Countries!

Thank you to Doug White & Glass Jacobson Financial Group for a fantastic 25th Anniversary Global Conference Event.  The numbers are in and the comments have been great!  This high energy event was packed with engaging speakers and memorable social activities.  Once again, we realize how important our face to face connections really are. Our members gathered from around the world to learn and to participate - a vital part of a truly Global Organization. We received very positive feedback about our keynote speaker Dan McGinn, who motivated everyone about Passions - and encouraged us by saying...
“Businesses should understand that passion is the new productivity, and how they will need to foster the passions of their employees and customers to compete in this ever more stressful world.”
Another interesting session included a panel of Ambassadors from three countries:  Albania, Botswana and New Zealand.  We learned about global commerce, local initiatives encouraging trade and some unique inside information about the role of Embassies.  Several of our members took the opportunity to visit their own country's Embassy while in Washington DC - and it was an enriching experience for them.

We also spent a good deal of time on Cyber Security and Marketing - topics of urgent interest to managing partners of our growing firms.  Please see our members only area for downloads of all the presentations, slides and videos.
