We Are Living in Uncertain Times.
We Cannot Afford to Play Below Our Potential.

Advisors recognize the shift in our society. Social, economic, political, even day-to-day challenges and tensions are shrouding us in more uncertainty.

As a leader of your team and clients, you face three choices for how you want to show up in your arena of influence:

You can play not to lose.

Shrinking away from opportunities. Consistently falling short of your leadership potential. Simply hoping to survive whatever comes your way.

You can play to play.

Holding on to the status quo. Happy to be a part of the conversation, but forever letting greatness slip away in the comfort of not risking anything, ever.

Or…you can play to win.

The ones who play to win are leaders who recognize the times we live in and the tremendous opportunities to rise to the occasion. These are the ones who gain true preeminence.

The greatest time to go all in, to step into your full power, to differentiate yourself as a leader is in uncertain times.

And that time is now.
This Is Your Invitation to Wake Up, Get Up, and 
Step Up at The Preeminent Advisor Summit

What does it mean to be “preeminent”
as an advisor?

It means shaking off the status quo, grabbing leadership moments with confidence and being brave even in the face of uncertainty.

At CEG Worldwide and Financial Advisor Magazine, we believe the preeminent advisor is the future of financial services.

A leader who is willing to commit to lead and play to win.

The challenge is, far too many advisors are stuck playing too small or failing to lead at all.

In many cases, it’s a combination of both.

And in the wake of poor leadership and ineffective strategies is a vast array of team members, clients and loved ones craving the leadership you’re capable of.

Some of this may sound familiar to you.

This doesn’t mean you’re a failure—not at all. You’re simply not playing to your full potential…yet.

What if you could understand with clarity and confidence—in only a matter of days—exactly how to lead and win?
That is the full intention of
The Preeminent Advisor Summit: to show
you how to step out of the crowd and
gain prominence in your community.

Why You Need to Experience The
Preeminent Advisor Summit

Hi, I’m John Bowen, founder and CEO of CEG Worldwide. My team and I have coached thousands of the top advisors in the world for over 20 years now.

In tens of thousands of conversations with top advisors, we see a profound distinction.
Being an advisor and being a leader are not the same.
An advisor emphasizes technical expertise—the information side of what investors need to know.

But a leader focuses on the transformative power of their relationships and work.

A leader sees the future and understands the moment while still in the moment.

Advice informs, but leadership transforms.

For you as an advisor to step out from the crowd, you need to choose…

Do you want to be in the informing business or the transforming business?
As an industry, we are facing significant uncertainty worldwide.

Investor sentiment is a roller coaster. Social, economic, and political unrest is at a boiling point.

Advisors who lead during times of uncertainty are the ones best positioned to make a lasting impact. The world needs your leadership now more than ever.

Your team, your current (and prospective) clients and your loved ones are watching and waiting to see if you will step up in this moment.

The greatest time to push all the chips into the middle of the table, to bet on yourself, is when the future is a daunting question mark.

That’s why you’re reading this. You can sense the uneasiness and stress intensifying throughout our industry.

You can let this pressure crumble you—or you can leverage this moment to accelerate your leadership momentum.

The word preeminent perfectly captures that desire.

To lead with excellence and poise.

To show up with effervescent energy for every meeting, conversation and opportunity for your team, clients and prospective clients alike.

To reconnect with those closest to you in a fresh, fulfilling way.

That commitment is the heartbeat of what we do at CEG Worldwide.

And now, our team is ready to show you how to become that preeminent advisor in your community.

It all starts with The Preeminent Advisor Summit.

What You’re Going to Experience with
The Preeminent Advisor Summit

In only two days, we will walk you through three parts of our process for helping advisors like you commit to lead and play to win.

First, we must confront where you are underperforming.

You cannot change what you’re not willing to confront.

At The Preeminent Advisor Summit, you’ll know right away where your leadership and focus are underperforming—and how to step up and tackle this challenge in these uncertain times.

Second, we must clarify where there are opportunities for growth and greater impact.

With our joint venture partner, The Spectrem Group, our CEG Worldwide leadership team draws from over 40,000 interviews with advisors serving affluent clients.

With this treasure trove of information and insight, you’ll have a level of clarity that will sharpen your focus on the future.

With a clearly defined reality and a focus on the future, only then can you commit to lead and play to win.

“Your ability to enroll your people into a bigger vision of what is possible than they can see for themselves”—that is the definition of leadership, and these times call for you to challenge your team members and yourself more than ever and support each other like never before.
