Host University 2019


Take your practice to the next level.

Canadian advisors using educational seminars are seeing incredible growth. It’s about time the “secret” recipe gets out.


Why Attend Host University?

Host U brings together top advisors and marketers that will teach you how you can leverage educational seminars to skyrocket the growth of your practice in ways that make traditional methods look downright inefficient (waiting on referrals, anyone?).

And the time is NOW, because there is a massive knowledge-gap in Canada when it comes to financial literacy.

Those advisors that decide to step in will reap the benefits…

What To Expect

Shortcut your way to successful seminars.

Not all seminars are built to succeed. Luckily for you, you won't have to make the same mistakes. 

You'll hear from top advisors and marketers on exactly what you need to do (and not do) to build, execute, and close the perfect seminar. 

Their actionable tips and decades of wisdom will allow you to work smarter, not harder, all while maximizing seminar ROI. 

A lot more than just education.

If we're not having fun, then what's the point? Host U has always been about having a good time while learning. 

Expect delicious food, a laid-back atmosphere, and after hours events that you won't want to leave.

You'll be in good company.

While there's certainly no shortage of competition among advisors, that doesn't mean we can't learn from each other. 

With so many like-minded advisors, you're bound to make some new friends and open new doors.
