2017 FPA Retreat

We live in disruptive and challenging times. While the future has always been uncertain, the speed and complexity of today's change is leaving many behind – disoriented and struggling to cope. What worked in the past appears no longer adequate. Knowledge and information, once stable sources of economic power, are no longer enough. As planners, we are called to take action. And with over 170,000 CFP® professionals worldwide, financial planning is uniquely positioned to become one of the most important professions of the 21st Century. But we are not there yet. The future demands new skills, new sensibilities, and a new way of being. Join Don St. Clair as he explores how our everyday common sense notion of language and communication blinds us to possibility, and constrains our capacity to reinvent financial reality with others. Offering a new interpretation, St. Clair will share his vision of what it means to be a CFP professional in the 21st Century.
