The Independent Insurance Agents of Texas (IIAT) Joe Vincent Management Seminar is a must-attend event for Texas agency personnel for the last 50+ years. The meeting is usually held at the end of January in Austin, Texas. This year the 58th annual meeting will be virtual.
The Association has again put together a great lineup of speakers. The benefit to you is they have opened up registration for the meeting to everyone. I have been a presenter at this event many times over the years.
You can find details about the event and register here. You will need to register for each session you wish to attend.
Three great keynote sessions will be presented. I’ve included a short description of each below.
Business Beyond 2030: Preparing Your Agency for the World of Tomorrow
Day 1: Monday, February 1, 2021 — 10-11 a.m. CT
When Chris Riddell joined us for last year’s Joe Vincent Seminar, nobody could have imagined the disruption that our world would soon face due to Covid-19. We’ve invited Chris back to give his unique perspective on our new world and how we can prepare for what lies ahead. The speed of change we’re experiencing is altering every facet of our lives—and this dramatically different world requires a shift in thinking and a fresh perspective on business, leadership, and our global community. Chris will tell us how we can prepare ourselves for this new world by focusing our agencies and teams on the critical factors that have the power to affect how we do business today and how we evolve and thrive towards the future.
The Science of Succeeding with People
Day 2: Tuesday, February 2, 2021 — 10-11 a.m. CT
As a human behavior hacker, Vanessa Van Edwards created a research lab to study the hidden forces that drive us… and she’s cracked the code. In this virtual keynote, Vanessa shares shortcuts, systems, and secrets for taking charge of your interactions at work, at home, and in any social situation. These aren’t the people skills you learned in school.
Join Vanessa to discover science-backed skills to learn a completely new approach to building connections. The skills she shares will help you lead your team through today’s challenges and inspire them to succeed in 2021.
The Sales Leaders Playbook for 2021
Day 3: Wednesday, February 3, 2021 — 10-11 a.m. CT
Selling is a noble job consisting of serving others, and as Sales Professionals and Sales Leaders, our job is to be BOLD, FEARLESS and COMMITTED to serving others — no matter any obstacles in our way!
This is the time when great Sales Leaders and great Sales Professionals widen the gap between them and their competition.
Nathan Jamail, best-selling author and experienced top producer, will share how our mindset will determine our commitment and preparation, and how our preparation and commitment will determine our success in 2021.
As agency leaders, our job is to make our people better, not just more experienced. We must help our people achieve things that they never would have believed possible on their own!
This virtual world can make these goals and our tasks more challenging but also much more important and rewarding! We can thrive during this time, not merely survive.
Come join Nathan where you will learn, laugh and get pumped for a BOLD, FEARLESS and COMMITTED launch to 2021!
I registered for all three sessions. Will I see you there?
