Get ready for New Horizons at 2019 Congress

07 October 2019

The 2019 Congress is about exploring the latest trends, transforming your thinking to improve the way you do business, and finding solutions to help you better serve and advise clients.

‘New Horizons’ – the theme of the 2019 FPA Professionals Congress– is about facing the future and adapting to change collectively as a profession.

With just over one month to go, the 2019 Congress is nearly here (29-29 November). With careful planning over 11 months and with a high number of registrations to date, we have organised three sensational keynotes including technological disrupters, a high calibre global planner panel and an inspirational story from the first and only Australian athlete to win both Summer and Winter Paralympic medals who will explore shifting the mindset.

We also have business leaders who will discuss how they have overcome obstacles and repositioned their businesses to excel, while a range of motivational speakers will talk about finding flow, and how to be your best self.

Delegates have a choice of 24 workshops to attend, covering four different streams. Hear from subject matter experts on business models, pricing, compliance efficiency, regulation, and delivering best practice advice through peer-to-peer learning.

Making the most of your visit to Melbourne, you are invited to start the conference on Wednesday 27 November by joining either a master class for business owners (FPA Professional Practices) or paraplanners, before attending the opening keynote presentation.

Whilst the program balances learning and inspiration, there is also so much to gain by attending networking events, where you can engage in deeper conversations with like-minded people around what they are doing in their practices to tackle common challenges. Be sure to attend the Welcome Function, Women in Wealth Breakfast and the Future2 Celebrations at the St Kilda Sea Baths, where we will be announcing the FPA Award Winners.

Congress is all about gathering our professional community together to continue to have conversations that address the main challenges facing practitioners and financial services businesses. Congress is about exploring the latest trends, transforming your thinking to improve the way you do business, and finding solutions to help you better serve and advise clients.

Congress 2019 will be packed with value and relevance. It will be transformative. It will help you stay focused. And it will foster excitement by looking over the horizon to see what the future of advice holds.

2018 Congress delegates said:

FPA Congress is our choice. So many great choices for sessions, including personal and professional development. Great to be around other professionals and learn from speakers we would not normally be able to access.

Exposed to a range of skills that can be used every day to help us all on our own journeys.

The keynote speakers were a highlight for me. I have left and started using some of the phrases they presented. They were very relevant to current industry issues.

With the changes going on in our practice and industry, it was very relevant and timely to our needs.

… felt like more of a sharing experience and recognising that, as an industry, what we do is hard but giving hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
