2015 CONFERENCE TESTAMONIALS
"Overall well-presented and insightful program"
- Josephine Tannous, The Domane Finance Group
"Excellent effort for the Inaugural event. I think you have set it up nicely so this becomes an established event on many corporate super Advisers and Product providers calendar. Very well organised - it went like clockwork, Well done to the organising team. Great venue speakers and content. If you can replicate same for future conferences you will be guaranteed big audiences."
- Neale Doust, MLC
"Well done WSSA! Our organisation has come a long way in a very short period of time. The passion that we all have to serve our clients and to act in their best interest at all times, will give us the victory in the long run against the constant barrage of negativity. Thank you to the entire team in Sydney for putting the conference together."
- Mike Caprion, Verum Financial Partners

- Stephen Black, IOOF
"You wouldn't have known it was a first attempt at a conference, well done. Good idea having long breaks in which to network, too."
- JPaul Roach, BT Financial Group
"Great conference and the start of something that should grow in relevance just like financial literacy!"
- Chris Wrightson, Centurion Market Makers
"Congratulations on your first conference - you now need to maintain the high standard you have set."
- Jack McCartney, UNI Super
"The agenda was excellent, all topics were relevant and there was a good mix of presenters and panel sessions."
- Suzanne Moodie, Colonial First State
"Congratulations on putting the conference together. It can only get better from here!"
- Alvin D'Souza, AMP
"I thought the conference was fantastic. I think it would be of great value if we could also invite CEOs of our Employer clients, as well as HR stakeholders of our key clients also. I would be great to encourage employers that aren't as engaged as others to see how valuable these services are and also make them see (for the gate stoppers) what they are missing out on for the employees. I would like to continue to see a session on insurance, as well as an employer guest speaker (such as flight centre) if we were to get our employer contacts along as well. Thanks for a great conference."
- Cheryl McMahon, Colonial First State
"Excellent first effort !! Very professionally run. Great to see so many people with a common purpose sharing views."
- John Anderson, Colonial First State
