Spark action with your 
next keynote.

Kristin Harad will inspire and educate your financial advisor audience.

Tales from the RIA trenches

Practical, real-world teachings

Immediately actionable insights

Your cure for the common keynote

It’s the headline attraction at your event — the presentation where everyone jockeys for a front-row seat, notebooks ready to document the a-ha moments they’ll share with their firm to build excitement and spur growth.

But too many keynote speakers for the financial advisory industry:

  • Speak to broad theory but can’t teach you how to apply it 
  • Know the bare minimum about our what it’s like to run a firm — or don’t have a clue
  • Use the spotlight to sell their products and services

With just another talking head on your stage, your speaker investment — and your audience’s time — is wasted.

Kristin Harad is the antidote: With decades of experience in the financial service industry and a coaching practice that offers strategies and systems for real results, she’ll fire up your audience and fuel growth back in the office.

Move people through your funnel faster

Waste less time talking with unqualified people

This info-packed session teaches you to keep up your marketing momentum to prompt more prospects to engage — who are pre-sold on your value.


Prepare Next Generation of Advisors for Growth

Historically, the most successful founders have been tenacious networkers and cold callers. 

But sales and marketing work differently now: Prospects respond better to education through content and a slow nurturing  process. Skeptical of the advice industry, potential clients want to validate your reputation, take longer to build trust, and prefer human connection to faceless transactions. 

In this session, learn how to prime your next generation of advisors to grow your firm — including what needs to be in your marketing playbook to focus advisor efforts for the greatest return.


Mapping your Business Develop-ment Ecosystem

Designed for RIA leaders and executives, this hands-on session helps you:

Map out an integrated firm-level view of marketing, sales, and client experience

Reveal resource-draining holes, revenue opportunities, and zero in on Biz Dev priorities

Create a sustainable growth engine separate from any single rainmaker and max out your firm’s value
Free up time and energy for life outside of work

Engage and inspire your team while developing the next generation of leaders

Infuse a business development mindset across your organization

Kristin knows her stuff and has been where we are — she knows what it’s like to be out there getting clients. If you don’t have a marketing background, it can all be so intimidating. She gave me ideas and actionable steps I can take as soon as I get back to the office.
