Client One

Sales Summit

September 17–19th, 2019

Every year, Client One gathers to rekindle relationships, explore new opportunities and collaborate among industry advisors and our industry partners. It’s a centralized event for advisors to learn about the latest offerings, technology and resources that can help them in their quest to guide clients and in turn, help them save and retire responsibly.

During this two-day conference, you will hear from prominent industry speakers proven to motivate and educate you on how to take your business to the next level. The Client One Sales Summit is your opportunity to network and share ideas with top advisors like yourself.

We believe our advisors are more than a number. The passion they bring to their clients is what moves us every day.

Deadline to register is August 19, 2019

Featured Speakers 2019

Steve Gilliland Hall of Fame Speaker and Author

Steve built a multimillion-dollar company from the ground up on the same philosophy he expounds to his audiences. If you continually learn more about your company, your industry, your customer and yourself, you will always be a leader. You will be purpose-driven rather than process-driven, and you will make a difference. His motto is straightforward: “If you take care of people, the business will follow.” He has been recognized by Who’s Who for Speakers and Business Professionals, and The Pittsburgh Business Times named his company one of the fastest-growing, privately held companies in the region.

A member of the Speaker Hall of Fame, Steve Gilliland is one of the most in-demand and top-rated speakers in the world. Recognized as a master storyteller and brilliant comedian, he can be heard daily on SiriusXM Radio’s Laugh USA and Jeff & Larry's Comedy Roundup. With an appeal that transcends barriers of age, culture and occupation—plus an interactive and entertaining style—Steve shows audiences how to open doors to success in their careers, their relationships and their lives. Presenting to more than 250,000 people a year, more than two million have now heard him speak, with audiences encompassing nearly three dozen industries. Steve has the distinction of speaking in all 50 states and in 15 countries. As one newspaper stated, “Steve is what happens when the humor of a stand-up comic collides with the inspiration of motivational speaker."
