Wicked Good Talks™  May 7, 2018

Investment advisers face an evolving landscape of challenges in pursuit of the limitless opportunities in growing their business. Rising to those challenges, the FPA of MA brings you a “one-of-a-kind” symposium, Wicked Good Talks™.

Wicked Good Talks™ is designed by a team that laughs at the usual lecture-based conferences. Instead, our goal is to create an incomparable forum for advisers to engage and interact among industry leaders, while at the same time developing a sound strategy to grow their practice(s).

Wicked Good Talks™ is one of the few “elite conferences” in the industry, it features general sessions and interactive workshops that run morning ‘til night. The agenda is stacked with well-orchestrated extracurricular events that provide for unmatched opportunities to ‘continue the conversation’ among advisers, speakers and the industry’s top service providers.
