EmpoWEred Planners Conference

Conference Dates are October 22 & October 23

The EmpoWEred Planners Conference was created out of the need for planners to connect and build impactful relationships. Planners are notoriously hush-hush about sharing their trade secrets with each other, but it keeps our industry from growing. Lucretia Williams, created the Empowered Planners Conference to take the secrecy out of “trade secrets” and give planners a platform to have open conversations about the business, while learning from industry pros and building real relationships.

The theme for this year’s conference is

EmpoWEring Excellence & Winning Together!

 

Come Grow and Connect with us. This educational platform will be a huge investment in your business’s growth. You’ll establish long-lasting and impactful relationships. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to network with some of the leading industry pros and creative professionals.  Be prepared to high-five a lot! #strongertogether
