Joe Vincent Seminar Preview: Give Your Agency the Mach 2 Mindset

For 60 years, the Texas insurance industry's top leaders have convened in Austin for IIAT's Joe Vincent Management Seminar to make connection and discuss the latest industry trends, challenges and insights. The tradition continues January 29-31, 2023, at the Renaissance Austin Hotel. Learn more.

A popular pilot saying is “speed is life,” because without enough speed, an airplane is nothing more than an expensive rock. In the business world, especially when technology is involved, speed can be just as crucial. The organization that moves the fastest often realizes the most success.

As the first female Thunderbird Pilot and a combat veteran, Joe Vincent Seminar keynote speaker Nicole Malachowski knows how to achieve peak performance at high speeds. On Mon, Jan. 30, 2023, Nicole will present The Mach 2 Mindset: Decision-Making in a High-Speed Environment. Having flown a high-tech fighter aircraft that can reach speeds of up to twice the speed of sound, Nicole offers principles that keep any organization functioning smoothly, efficiently, and at high speed, even when chaos and the unexpected occur. Nicole's insights help leaders create a culture where decisions get made quickly.
