Presentation Topic:
Rebranding: The New Reality

In a world where change is the only constant Albert Brandstatter realized that he had to rebrand himself and his business in order to not only survive, but thrive. Albert built his practice from being a clerk to managing over 300 million dollars in assets. “Everything was great, until the inevitable happened. Clients got older and started taking out money instead of putting it in!”

Albert also talks about how work overtook his family and how he faced his own personal crisis. “Though I didn’t realize it, I had subtly begun to worship my work. My family was slowly becoming a distant second.”

In 2010 Albert began the process of rebranding his business. It took longer than expected and was some of the hardest work he has ever done, but it was worth it!

Albert shares his story of personal and professional rebranding and how you can do it as well!
