Synchron has announced that its annual NextGen Bootcamp will be held in Rotorua, New Zealand in November.

NextGen brings together Synchron advisers and business development professionals under the age of 40, to expand their practice management and marketing skills and to explore new ways of building and strengthening relationships with their clients and with each other.

Now in its 13th year, this year’s NextGen has been expanded to accommodate 72 attendees, including young Synchron advisers, support staff and industry professionals, as well as eight invited New Zealand financial services industry guests. It was fully subscribed within 24 hours and there is now a waitlist.

“The key objective of NextGen is to help our advisers and those BDMs who help them, to build strong and healthy advice businesses,” says Synchron Director, Don Trapnell. “Having a strong and healthy business is the only way advisers will be able to help their clients.” 

Mr Trapnell says that hosting this year’s NextGen Bootcamp in New Zealand will also give delegates and the Synchron team the opportunity to view the New Zealand financial advice landscape firsthand.

“New Zealand is just starting to go through the kinds of structural and regulatory change we have experienced in Australia,” he says. “In the interests of our profession and our businesses, we are keen hear about the New Zealand experience and, if we can, help our kiwi counterparts with the issues facing both our countries.”
