PFP 4175-001: Marketing and Business Development

Evan Beech is a CFP with Campbell Wealth Management in the Washington, DC area. He started his career in sales classes for four days a week as training, then moved on to Campbell in a business development role. Evan and his company's CEO have developed seminars, etc. that lead to over $60 million in new assets per year. Although Evan is a millennial, he sees the need for the traditional rainmaking role to drive business growth. This would be an excellent course for those of you in need of sales and marketing knowledge – ESPECIALLY if you think you are scared of the idea of selling your services as a financial planner!
