SSN Rep Forum 2015 Recap
Earlier this year, we had a great opportunity to provide our professional photography and videography services at a two day interactive workshop for independent broker dealer, Securities Service Network at the Orlando luxury resort, Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. For their 2015 SSN Rep Forum, attendees had the chance to hear affiliated financial planners discuss their business model, staff management, money management, and workflow as well as learn how these advisors are implementing technology into their practice and how they market their services.
Day one of the forum included a group discussion and Philip Blancato, CEO and President of Ladenburg Thalmann Asset Management as the keynote address. The conclusion of their first evening at the beautiful secluded luxury hotel venue was a networking reception where all of the attendees and SSN advisors got together for cocktails at the Grandview Terrace.
Day two of the 2015 Rep Forum, we captured their brainstorming roundtable sessions and also had a separate room setup for sit down video interviews with three of SSN’s affiliated financial planners. The interviewees were Rick Phillips, Evesham Capital Management, Kate Emling, Emico Advisory Services, and Paul Tingley, Financial Resource Advisors. Each affiliate told their stories to the interviewer as we filmed them against a green screen background. Shooting interviews against a green screen has many advantages, but for this specific video production project, the benefit would be for when we reached the video editing process, because it enables us to chroma key background images for each video. SSN are using these interviews as a part of their video content marketing such as a website feature called “Meet Our Reps.” These type of interview videos can also be used as employee profile videos for any company.
This interview video clip features Rick Phillips talking about the beginning of his boutique wealth management firm, Evesham Capital Management in Mt. Laurel, NJ.
You can learn more about Rick’s journey and watch the video in its entirety on his “Meet Rick Phillips!” page on joinssn.com. You can also view the other affiliates video profiles on their website as well.
Our two days at the wonderful Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress for the 2015 SSN Rep Forum was absolutely perfect. Every advisor, employee, and affiliate with SSN were extremely kind and the SSN Rep Forum was an outstanding workshop to provide our corporate event photography service for. It was also very insightful to hear the inspiring success stories of entrepreneurs.
