Practice on Purpose – Achieve the Financial Advice Practice You Desire and Your Clients Deserve was published in June 1014. Gary joined with Phil Richards and Ed Deutschlander in authoring this leading practice management resource. The book was launched at the 2014 GAMA Thailand and AFA conference in Singapore. The premise of the book is to raise the sense of purpose and value an advisor can achieve with their practice. This includes how to attract and retain clients who want a superior experience in a well-run client service model, capturing Financial Advice as its own value, reaching a million dollar sustainable revenue practice and executing a successful business continuation plan that recognized the equity value of the practice. Practice on Purpose reframes the Advisor experience.

The Celebration of Excellence Awards (COE) celebrates the recipients of the James H. Krueger First in Class Honorees and the Brian H. Early Frontline Excellence Awards, as well as the GAMA International Management Hall of Fame inductee.

GAMA International created the First in Class Award in 2000 to recognize first-line leaders in the insurance, investment, and financial services industry who have led their agencies or firms to the number one position in their company during the preceding year. Recipients are nominated by their home offices, and each company determines the criteria it will use to select its nominee. Multiple nominees may be eligible for companies that segment distribution by market size or use a benchmark value proposition for their distribution systems. Companies are urged to nominate field leaders who excel as leaders in both their careers and their communities.

The Frontline Excellence Award, which debuted in 2010, recognizes field leaders who have shown exemplary performance in their current frontline positions and are considered to be emerging leaders in their companies. The award is named after the late Brian Early of Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, an especially active GAMA member who had a powerful passion for helping emerging leaders grow and develop, and helped create the association’s Leaders of Today and Tomorrow (LoTT). The recipients of this award serve to remind us where we will find the next generation of industry legends.
