Welcome back to Redtail University in person!
Welcome back to Redtail University in person!
At first glance, you might not think that financial professionals have much in common with our National Parks. However, the mission of our National Parks, to conserve the beautiful landscapes for future generations, and to continue to grow those parks and the connection with their visitors, is very similar to the way financial professionals work with clients.
Financial professionals are trusted to conserve and protect the livelihoods for their clients’ future, as well as grow their relationships, and plant new ones, into something strong that will continue to last. Likewise, just as the National Parks Service implements technology, offers education, and provides valuable strategies in their mission, Redtail is here to help financial professionals develop and implement the best technology and strategies to allow them to best serve their clients and allow them to conserve for today and grow for tomorrow.
Through a variety of Redtail University events, we provide a fun, energetic learning environment to meet the needs and diverse goals of each office. We’re here to put you in the best position to protect your clients’ assets while helping you grow your relationships to be strong in the future.
Check out what we’re all about in this video, then scroll below for dates and additional information.
Strap on your tool belts, because Redtail University is back to help financial professionals from all over the country with the tools and blueprints needed to make you a master builder of client relationships! Featuring two tracks, RTU covers all there is to learn about Redtail CRM, while also highlighting the latest updates and functions in your toolbox. Join our Redtail trainers to have your mind filled with actionable takeaways to maximize your CRM tool usage by attending either our Implement track or our Strategy track.
Recommended for newer users (one year or less), one-person offices, or office staff who live in Redtail, the Implement track is all about the tools you have at your disposal and HOW to implement them in your office life. This is a nuts-and-bolts training that shows how to apply the many areas of Redtail in your business by using concepts, situations, and best practice examples. If you find yourself saying “I don’t know what I don’t know” or “I’m only using 5% of Redtail” or “Where do I run reports again?”, then Implement is the track for you!
Recommended for more seasoned users (two+ years), Office Managers, or Advisors with Staff, the Strategy track focuses on using the entire CRM as a tool, as well as WHEN and WHY to use certain features. While still utilizing the tools in the CRM, Strategy offers more of a framework for how all of the tools within Redtail can be used to strategically tackle common situations. The main approach of Strategy is to show users what Redtail CRM is capable of in their office. If you find yourself having “trouble with practice management”, then check out our Strategy track!
Remember though, there is no wrong class to pick, and we’re confident you’ll gain all types of knowledge to use the power tools at your disposal to build stronger client relationships.
Back for its fourth year, RTU XL takes one of the most popular feedback items from regular Redtail Universities and gives the people what they want: a two-day educational training featuring a steadier pace, additional examples, and more best practices.
For RTU XL, we cover the same topics covered at Redtail University, but we work with the additional time to further build on concepts as well as provide additional applications, examples, and best practices.
Back by popular demand, RTU Masters is a unique opportunity for you to join other Power Users for a small group, discussion-based, VIP training experience under the roof of Redtail’s headquarters in Sacramento, CA. At RTU Masters, you’ll have the chance to participate and build upon your CRM knowledge with deep-dive Advisor topics such as prospecting, client retention, compliance preparation, and more! Using numerous case studies and industry examples, RTU Masters offers you a chance to not only bring your knowledge to enhance discussions, but to also get high-level education and guidance from our Redtail University Trainers. To top it off, RTU Masters includes exclusive face-to-face time with Redtail Upper Management, Developers, and Staff. This VIP Experience will allow you to interact with more of your Redtail family and includes great food, refreshing drinks, a special evening event, and a healthy portion of industry-specific education to satisfy all your knowledge needs.
PLEASE NOTE: RTU Masters is a course that requires Advanced CRM user knowledge and will not be focusing on basic concepts. For further details on recommended proficiencies, please see the RTU Masters Agenda.
