History of The World Series of Success

Every year, The World Series of Success brings AE advisors together to celebrate last year’s wins, share new ideas and recharge for the year ahead.

The Goal: To give financial professionals the tools and encouragement they need to help more clients enjoy a successful retirement.

Formerly known as The World Series of Sales, this annual extravaganza celebrates the training and marketing success of professionals in insurance and financial services. Launched to help advisors kick off the new year inspired and energized, The World Series of Success gives AE advisors the boost they need to face whatever challenges the year might bring — and make the coming year their best ever.

WSOS has historically featured big-name speakers (Michael Phelps, George W. Bush, Shaquille O’Neal) to provide leadership insights and ideas that advisors can implement in their business. Each year, the event has featured a stirring theme (All In, Stronger Together, Dream Big, Buckle Up), exciting location (Houston, Washington, D.C.) and a worthy charitable organization to support.

One thing that has never changed: The World Series of Success aims to celebrate our advisors, support them in their quest to become better business owners, and enhance the growth and development of the industry.

The unique experiences and relative success of the presenters may not be representative of the experience of all financial professionals. Results from the use of the concepts and strategies shared at The WSOS are no guarantee of your future success.
