“Fusion Collaboration was an experience I will never forget! When the student is ready, the teacher will appear!!"
— S. Mark Alton, Vice President & Senior Investment Management Consultant, The Armory Group at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management
“Let Fusion Collaboration show you how to connect the technical aspects for planning with the heart of families we serve in order to have a client for life.”
— Michael Palumbos, ChFC, Family Wealth Advisor
“The best way to serve my family business clients is in collaboration with experts in a variety of disciplines including law, accounting, financial advisory, insurance, banking, and of course, someone who can help the family address the emotional side of these topics. That’s why I’m excited to participate in the Fusion Collaboration.”
— Cathy Carroll, MBA, ACC, Legacy Onward
“As a Legacy Estate Planning Attorney, I felt the Fusion Collaboration was an excellent foray into combining the technical tax updates with the social and emotional intelligence we all use to counsel clients in the emotional issues we face every day. Fusion presented a unique way of marrying the two disciplines in a way that gives me more tools to help clients and be a true counsellor. I would recommend this program to anyone in this field.”
— Michael G. Stuart, Esq., Member/Manager & Founder at The Stuart Legacy Alliance, LLC
“A unique gathering. Bringing together people and topics from different disciplines is only the first step. This conference takes on the ambitious goal of joining their perspectives to create a combined experience. It works.”
