Carstens Attends Exclusive Elite Advisors Summit with Fellow Top Producers
ARNOLDS PARK, IOWA (March 23, 2015) -- Kirt Carstens attended the Ninth-Annual Elite Advisor Summit held March 1-4 in Austin, Tex., at the Four Seasons Hotel. This exclusive gathering focused on the exchange of ideas with top producers from around the country and featured motivational speakers.
The most valuable lesson Carstens learned at the Summit? Gaining new strategies to overcome self-inflicted roadblocks. Attendance was imperative for networking with peers and vendors because of the benefits it brings him and his business, including the ability to learn new strategies, acquire knowledge of product changes and discover new marketing opportunities.
“Producers at summits like these are always the best of the best, so it’s an honor to be invited,” Carstens said. “Coming from Northwest Iowa, the Elite Advisor Summit was a great way to measure what we’re doing at Carstens Financial Group compared to others around the country, and to see all the really great things we—and everyone else—are doing for clients.”
The collaboration with other top producers opened Carstens up to new ideas to implement in the coming years to improve the client experience.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to spend time with such great people. We share ideas and really motivate one another for the years ahead,” said Carstens. “The people here really make the difference!”
Featured speakers included Captain J. Charles Plumb, Vietnam War POW and survivor. He drew parallels between his POW experience and the challenges of everyday life, revealing a story of hope, validating the strength of the human spirit.
“It was incredible to hear Charlie’s story. He was so powerful and made us all realize life is always better than it can seem sometimes. His resolve, and the other POWs he shared his 2,103-day captivity with, was beyond words,” said Carstens.
As a thank you, Elite Advisor Summit attendees were sized for a custom-fitted Stetson hat to go with the Texas theme of the Summit.
