The Financial Experts Network utilizes a "network" of subject matter experts to educate financial professionals so they can better serve their clients. Since its launch in 2008, Financial Experts' live webinars have drawn over 80,000 financial professionals to over 500 educational webinars.
Tom Dickson founded the Financial Experts webinar series in 2008. He has had the good fortune of working in many aspects of the financial services industry during his 40-year career. Over half that career has been spent educating financial advisors.
There are at least 3 things that make Financial Experts unique. One is its use of true subject matter experts to educate our professional listeners. A second unique aspect is our emphasis on live webinars, not replays. This allows for meaningful interaction that allows listeners to get their question answered by the expert. The third would be the quality of the strategies and insights delivered by the experts, as evidenced by the fact that 90% of our listeners, when surveyed, say they've learned something from a Financial Experts webinar that helps them better serve their clients.
