Roy Parker, a financial advisor with the financial-services firm Edward Jones in Washington, and Dee Borrelli, a branch office administrator, recently attended an invitation-only training opportunity at the firm’s headquarters in St. Louis.
The two-day Custom Forum is offered to less than 1,000 branch teams throughout the country, those that rank among the firm’s most successful in helping clients work toward their long-term financial goals. Parker and Borrelli were among the 150 branch teams, out of more than 10,000, invited to attend this session.
“At the Custom Forum, we strengthened our knowledge and skills by sharing ideas with other successful teams and attending training from home-office experts, all of which will directly translate into helping our clients meet a growing number of financial needs,” Parker said. “Dee and I tailored some of the training to focus on areas of our business that we want to grow.”
Borrelli added, “Attending this training together has allowed us to strengthen our team approach to serving our clients. With our new insights on communication, efficiency and available resources, we are now even better equipped to deliver an ideal client experience to every client.”
The firm is consistently recognized for delivering industry-leading training. Earlier this year, Edward Jones was ranked No. 15 on Training magazine’s “2012 Training Top 125” list – its 12th consecutive appearance on the prestigious list.
