Pricing with Certainty

A one-day workshop to accelerate the growth of financial advisory teams.

The uncertain economic times provide a clear certainty. The advice industry is overloaded with opportunities while facing an emerging new era of advice. Our Workshop will accelerate your plans by sharing the insights, lessons, models and strategies teams are using to advise & grow better.

Advance your financial advice teams with Certainty.



24 February 2023 Agenda

(subject to change)


9am – Certainty Advice Live Workshops are different. Since 2004, our most successful structure for productive development workshops is based upon the PARTICIPATIVE small group work combined with large group discussions and follow-up SUPPORT for every participant’s future steps.


10am – Breakthroughs drive growth while breaking restrictive habits, mindsets and pricing models past their use-by dates. Small group insights, a panel of various breakthroughers in different advisory team roles will illustrate what is achievable when a methodical breakthrough program is adopted by ambitious advisory teams. 


11am – With the wrong minimum fees, advisory teams become ‘sweat shops’ of high activity, high turnover, high dependency and falling profitability. The session will discuss the role, transition paths and loyalty issues when implementing tough and effective minimum access fees. 


12 noon – When divided into like-minded small advisory groups, the “What would you charge and deliver for $x?” provides a strong learning platform. There are no ‘right’ answers to the pricing cases, but there are better and worse approaches that affect the consistent, specific and profitable pricing.


2pm – Pricing on value driven by each client needs different precedents to pricing on effort or product. These panel and small group discussions will highlight the steps for every participating firm to price better, more consistently, quickly and valuably.


3pm – How will price of advice change in the coming five years? How are advisory teams preparing themselves and their clients? How will the price be influenced by capacity management, skills development, attracting and retaining talent, technology, advice niches, and regulatory uncertainty? A crucial discussion to help finalise 2023 implementation steps.


4pm – The session will conclude with the details of the post-event support provided to each participant. For those that can stay, the post-event bar will be open and complimentary to continue discussions, exchange contact details and continue the discussions started in the workshop groups.


For those that value the power of accountability to support implementation, ongoing support plans will continue post-session with tools, advice, accountability and support.
