The Advisor Summit is a 2 day live training event for financial advisors, wealth planners and financial industry professionals to give them actionable tools and skills to deliver an exceptional planning process for their high net worth and business owner clients. 

Unlike other training sessions, you don't have to pay thousands of dollars into a program before attending a CWA event. Come "audit" 2 days of classes from three top advisors in the industry for less than an average mortgage payment!

No matter what you call yourself: A CFP, financial advisor or wealth planner, we all want the same things - to get and retain more clients. 


Have you met John Enright? He's an award-winning, 7-figure financial advisor (NAIFA Top 4 Under 40) with articles in the Wall Street Journal, Advisor Today, Financial Advisor Magazine, WealthLinc, Round Table, and much more. John created the Custom Wealth Inspection; his unique 5-step planning process that has mastered how to attract and retain clients, while also turning them into an advisor's biggest cheerleaders. He's the founder of the CWA Network & brings in a cool $2 million in AUM. 


Michael Palumbos is not only the co-founder of the CWA Network, but also a "student" of John's system. Mike is a family & legacy advisor in upstate New York and has been using John's system since 2012. Since then, he's averaged 23.71% annual growth because of John’s process. Now, he's on a mission to help other advisors achieve the same success that he's had following this unparalleled practice management system. 

Stephen Wershing

With Special Guest: Stephen Wershing - The Financial Planning Industry's Top Niche Marketing Specialist. Stephen is an internationally-recognized expert on niche marketing & practice management for financial advisors. Steve says that “a niche is simply a need”, and if you plant the seed for the need, your clients will find you...not the other way around. It's the perfect match to our mantra - plant seeds to grow trees.  


From helping them double their fees in a year to stream-lining their existing processes, CWA Network's blueprint systems will launch your practice to the next level. But we don't need to tell you that - they will!  

"I’ve looked at and been through almost every major coaching program out there... and this one starts you where everyone else drops you off. This delivers a true client experience that drives referrals, helps your get introductions and really provides a unique experience to help you build your business."  

Greg Desmond CPA/PFS, CFP® Walnut Creek, CA  

"There are lots of financial advisors that make over a million dollars a year BUT lots of times they keep their secrets to themselves, they don’t want to share their secrets. But, John does…that’s what makes him so influential".  

Dan Sullivan Co-Founder, Strategic Coach Toronto, ON  

“It has been so much easier now and to give you actual evidence, I’ve already exceeded by 50 percent the amount of money I brought in fees from last year to this year alone. So, thank you CWA Network for everything you’ve done for me. I really appreciate it.”  

Kevin Best CFP, MS Rochester, NY
