Ed Saxon Brings the Power of Story to Dallas Financial Advisors

DALLAS, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- eMoney Advisor ("eMoney"), a leading provider of advanced wealth planning solutions for financial advisors, hosted its kick-off event for The Power of Story presentation series featuring Academy Award® winning film producer Edward Saxon yesterday afternoon.

More than 40 local financial advisors gathered at the Rosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek where they learned from a Hollywood master storyteller how to improve communications with their clients. Saxon shared the secrets of the world's most influential filmmakers by using analysis, examples, anecdotes and advice. 

"To really connect with your audience, or your client, you need to reach them on an emotional level. That's what good stories do. They engage, they visualize, they communicate, they connect," said Saxon to the advisors.

After listening to Saxon's presentation, advisors could better understand the role storytelling plays in advising clients. A spirited Q&A session allowed advisors to further discover the benefits of leveraging narrative to strengthen the advisor/client relationship.

"Saving and investing money is more than numbers. Numbers are just metrics and measurements," he continued. "It's what your money enables you to do that's important. How you share your resources and who you share them with is where the heart of your story lies."

The Power of Story presentation series with Saxon supports eMoney's ongoing commitment to provide innovative resources for financial advisors to improve their practice. eMoney understands that financial data is only half the equation, and that how advisors present their story to clients and prospects is as important as what they present.

Next up, Saxon will travel to Philadelphia and New York City on May 7th and 8th to continue spreading his message of The Power of Story. Visit www.emoneystory.com to register.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed.

If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

Service providers will w...

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
