Event Details

Sports terminology is often used when describing sales, so let's have some fun and focus this year's Gradient Securities Annual Meeting on football and the parallels between you and those who step out on the gridiron. We know you'll walk away with a winning game plan from this training camp.

Over the past year, Gradient Securities has experienced consistent and significant growth. Each 'season', we continue enhancing our proven plans for success for our independent representatives. This is your chance to get your hands on a winning playbook and view everything we have to offer to increase the success of your practice. Based on your feedback, we added multiple 'drills' to ensure a customized Annual Training Camp experience.

At this year’s event, we will focus on helping you build and implement a powerful, customized marketing plan. Gain valuable insight to several of our 'MVP' sales and marketing strategies that have helped many of our representatives grow their practice.

Get your business out of the neutral zone. This training camp will change the way you run your offense. Learn how our most successful registered representatives score millions of dollars in sales and generate significant recurring revenue. Learn how our technology platform will revolutionize your practice and enable you to generate more prospects, more appointments and more sales.

Over the past year, we have continued to add to our All-Pro line-up of product sponsors. Tackle this opportunity to learn about the most competitive products in the industry today.

Also, by attending the 'pre-season' compliance meeting, you will satisfy over half of your 2014 firm element requirements.

Don't fumble and give up the chance for a clean sweep to the play-offs!
