Sunday, October 9th:
Top Golf (first 100 registrants)--transportation provided to and from hotel. Bill Walrath will speak to the rapid evolution of some parts of the insurance sector and cover things that are coming, but aren't in the market yet.
The Trade Show will take place from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. and booth space is limited to the first 40 Partners.
Monday, October 10th:
Speakers Aubie Knight, Chris Paradiso, Carey Wallace, Meagan Johnson, CJ McClanahan and Paul Buse will cover topics of interest to all agencies such as social media marketing, utilizing agency data and valuations, generational considerations and best practices for building a sales team that delivers predictable results. Keynote speakers: Matt Booth (lunch) is an attitude expert and Greg Schwem is a humorist that may induce laughter. The folks from Anthony Cole will have specific agency survey results (we will send these surveys out in advance) to allow agency principals to measure their agency with others. We also expect to have a legislative discussion with one of our national IIABA lobbyists.
Tuesday, October 11th:
We will be offering a special presentation by Jeff Toister on creating the proper service culture which will be of interest to agency principals and agency CSR's alike. The Anthony Cole folks will also cover a review of their 21 effective sales techniques that will be of value to all participants. We will also have Dan Nelson giving us a South Dakota W/C update. Interested Crop Agents will be able to receive three hours of Crop E&O CE. We encourage member agencies to send CSR's and other support staff on Tuesday if possible.
We do not currently have the exact number of CE credits determined, but we expect between 6-8 hours of CE approved.
