The Greatest Industry That No One Knows About: A Focus on Talent Acquisition

Tommy McDonald
Vice President, MarshBerry

The number of professionals 55 years and older is 30% higher in the insurance industry than the rest of the economy and the number of professionals in this group has risen 74% during the past 10 years. There is a systemic issue within our industry around the focus on capturing talent. Without change, the independent agency and broker model will be hard to sustain.

In this session, MarshBerry VP Tommy McDonald will discuss critical changes the insurance industry must make to move the needle with talent acquisition, development, and retention. 

  • Learn how to go from agency producer to partner.
  • Discover the mentality you must have to become an agency owner.
  • Find out how to take advantage of the tremendous opportunities insurance professions provide.
  • And more.

Be Your Own Super Hero

Sam Glenn, the Attitude Guy

We’ve have all had dreams or aspirations of being the superhero in the movies or books, but what about in real life? Is it possible?  ABSOLUTELY! Sam Glenn will motivate you to be the best version of yourself by using your strengths to make positive contributions.

Remember:

  • Not all superheroes wear capes and masks – we all have a superhero living within us.
  • Superhero leaders help others realize their superpowers.
  • Superheroes work on themselves to learn, grow and enrich their content and value.
  • A superhero doesn’t act like a super villain when encountering conflict or challenges.
  • Superheroes believe in creating stories that make someone’s day.
  • Superheroes turn adversity into opportunities.
  • Superheroes don’t give up, they find a way.

Plus, the CSR of Year and Andre' Juneau Award
