"I highly recommend the Leadership Academy to insurance professionals of any age, years of experience...I attended the first one held by IIAT, and, not only learned a whole lot, but also made some friends in the industry. It is very comprehensive and presented in a way that is easy to comprehend and enjoy."

- Bert Miller, Miller Insurance Agency

"The Leadership Academy was very beneficial to me and would be for other leaders, whether they are seasoned veterans or new to a leadership role. I appreciated the fact that all of the professors had real-life experience prior to beginning to teach. During the three-month course, I developed new leadership skills that have aided my professional growth and I made great connections with other insurance professionals. This was a very good investment all the way around!"
