Recap: 2014 Annual Convention

The Trusted Advisor: Your Quest to Enhance Your Customer Experience Journey
Scott Addis
Today’s business leaders are starving for their agent and brokers to demonstrate a curiosity and desire to understand the inner workings of their business. They are searching for a new brand of insurance agent or broker – consultative, diagnostic, results-oriented and focused on managing and mitigating risks rather than selling insurance. The Trusted Advisor is distinguished from others in the marketplace as a result of his or her unique value proposition, relational capital and technical talents. This program will enable you to move beyond the transactional sale to a consultative and diagnostic process leading to Trusted Advisor status. Specific focus will be placed on the design and development of a powerful value proposition consisting of a process to facilitate your ability to identify, prioritize and mitigate the risks of those organizations for whom you serve.
E&O Executive Briefing
Sharon Koches, Wayne Merrill and Charles Phillips
This timely panel discussion offers a senior management level discussion of E&O issues and trends. A Swiss/Re senior underwriter and claims team leader will be on hand to help facilitate a discussion that will include both trends in conventional claims and emerging claims issues.

"The entire experience of the convention was beneficial to me and my agency. The networking is very important and gives us a chance to actually see each other. The continuing education is good and the breakout sessions offered flexibility as well as a feeling of accomplishment!"
