AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Angie Herbers, named one of the "Top 25 Most Influential People in the Advisory Industry" by Investment Advisor magazine in 2007, 2013 and 2015, today launched Beyond U, the only online educational platform that provides financial advisors with in-depth seminars focused on strategies to stimulate business growth.
Driven by nearly two decades of Angie's extensive experience in the advisory field, Beyond U provides subscribers with the most critical resources and knowledge required to promote growth within a firm. Through live online seminars, videos, tools and templates, it addresses important industry issues like leadership, corporate finance, operations, client services, human capital, management, sales and marketing. The platform was built to meet the ongoing demand for learning, curiosity and education, catering to how the next generation of professionals approach career development and ongoing training needs.
In addition to the training sessions, Beyond U provides advisors the opportunity to take a post-seminar assessment and download tools and templates to apply their knowledge. This acts as a way for advisors to integrate their training into practice-building exercises. Participating advisors can also join networking study groups guided by a Beyond U Trainer to discuss industry's best practices and training topics with peer advisors.
As part of this launch, Alex Garcia is appointed as Beyond U Chief Strategist. A 2015 graduate of the CFP® registered program at Texas Tech University, Garcia will be working with key strategic partnerships across the industry to develop and publish additional training courses, knowledge and expertise from leading institutions supporting the advisory community.
"In the last 16 years, I have seen an influx of young advisors taking over firms with little to no growth training," said Beyond U founder and CEO Angie Herbers. "There is a real need for industry training on how to take new or established businesses and continue to grow them in the modern marketplace. With Beyond U, our mission is to address this demand by preserving and spreading knowledge and hands-on learning across the industry so that advisors can serve their clients and create a business that lasts in perpetuity."
Angie is the founder of FourPointe Consulting, a financial advisor consulting company where she has consulted more than 600 advisory firms and founder of i love U too, a charitable giving program that grants scholarships to next-gen advisors enrolled in CFP® registered university programs across the nation. Herbers is a 2001 graduate of Kansas State University's CFP® registered undergraduate program.
