MDRT 2022 Annual Meeting Recap
The four-day Annual Meeting in Boston, USA offered more than 170 sessions, featuring motivational Main Platform speakers, thought-provoking Focus Sessions and immersive ConneXion Zone sessions. With the opportunity to network with MDRT's global, dynamic community of thought leaders, attendees cultivated meaningful relationships and learned tailored strategies for navigating a post-pandemic world – no matter their career stage. In celebration of MDRT's continued global expansion, MDRT First Vice President Peggy Tsai gave her Main Platform presentation in her native language of Mandarin.
The Annual Meeting featured a total of 172 sessions, including 9 sessions presented by our local Singaporean MDRT members. Some topics covered include 'Harnessing the infinite power of social media' by Candice Ong and 'Building a record-breaking team while achieving Top of the Table' by Chee Keng Lian in Mandarin.
"I am honored to be given the opportunity to share my experiences as a financial consultant, especially on such a global scale. I hope that Singapore's financial planning profession will continue to prosper and that more of us will have the opportunity to bring our achievements to a larger stage." added Joyce Chan, one of the Singaporean MDRT members.
The event also offered inspiration from exciting Main Platform speakers, such as Broadway star Alton Fitzgerald White and Olympic gymnast Dominique Dawes. Attendees also heard distinguished MDRT members share the proven strategies used to elevate their practice during MDRT Speaks, Focus Sessions and ConneXion Zone sessions. Main Platform content was available via livestream for those who could not attend in person.
"After attending more than 30 MDRT Annual Meetings in person before the pandemic, I'm thrilled we were able to safely gather once again. To have the opportunity to celebrate, learn, and grow together is incomparable," said MDRT President Randy Scritchfield, CFP, LUTCF. "Experiencing again the comradery of the shared learning environment and the innovative strategies that empower us to continue striving for the next level of success is an unforgettable event."
