The Narrative of Trust in Advisory Services with John Connors
Trust is the cornerstone of a successful advisor-client relationship. And earning that trust starts with empathy – the ability to have a complete understanding of clients’ situations and concerns. Having a clear understanding of what drives clients’ decisions allows advisors to develop and recommend solutions that align with their goals and preferences, laying the foundation for successful advisory platforms.
In today’s episode, Jack talks with John Connors, Founder and CEO of Boathouse. Prior to founding his own marketing agency in 2001, John held positions at companies such as Hill Holliday and Merrill Lynch, served as CEO of Zentropy Partners, and became part of the McCann World Group Management team. With the aim of bringing a new level of performance-mindedness to the agency business, John created Boathouse.
John talks with Jack about why narratives matter, why advisors deserve more attention and value, and how empathy can be key to building trust with clients.
