Vancouver, BC

Learn how to build trust and deepen your client relationships with “the philanthropic conversation” and set yourself apart as an advisor.

“While most advisors are confident that they are having the “philanthropic conversation” with their clients, recent studies show that most clients disagree.”

Experts Paul Nazareth and Pam Prior have honed their skills at diplomatically holding the philanthropic conversation to drive relationship building within the financial and philanthropic sectors.

Join us us for their workshop on how to leverage philanthropic conversations to deepen your client relationships; driving new business and stronger client retention.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to uncover what makes charitable giving personally meaningful to your clients.
  • How to strategically use asset-based giving and estate planning to build a plan that maximizes your clients’ philanthropic impact and personal fulfillment.
  • How that plan will help you retain clients for life and build relationships with the next generation.

Our session will be most valuable to professionals who are consulted for advice on financial and legal manners such as Estate lawyers, accountants, financial advisors etc. The event is free, and all are welcome to attend.
