Unstuff Your Agency!

Like everybody, insurance agents struggle with stuff in unique ways. Possible challenges include inflexible and obsolete systems, silo-ed management, task redundancy and unfruitful sales efforts.  Throughout this highly interactive training, all participants work with Andrew to identify what’s working or not in their agencies, then strategize collective solutions to achieve common goals.

Takeaways include:
  • Best ways to exploit current technology and communication to develop agency-wide skills. 
  • How to manage current workflow more efficiently to avoid overcommitting and under-delivering.  
  • 14 strategies for managing email more effectively. 
Before the keynote presentation, we'll present the 2019 André P. Juneau  ELITExan of the Year and the Account Manager of the Year award winners.
