HERE'S THE SCOOP...
What do you do when you cannot find a conference to attend that is INDUSTRY SPECIFIC, EXCLUSIVELY FOR WOMEN and combines NEW AGENT TRAINING as well as ADVANCE LEVEL TRAINING for ALL LINES OF INSURANCE….???
Well of course, YOU CREATE IT!!!
That is exactly what we are planning for our upcoming Women of Insurance Anniversary Conference. This will not be your typical conference. We are taking things to a whole new level.
This event is a big deal for many reasons!
FIRST, it is the only conference of its kind. Sure, other conferences for women exist, other insurance industry conferences exist and other conferences specific to each line of insurance exist BUT NONE EXIST THAT COMBINE ALL 3 OF THESE THINGS INTO ONE!
SECOND, it is OUR VERY FIRST CONFERENCE and we are sooo excited about it!
THIRD, our event dates fall perfectly on our 4 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of when we created this amazing exclusive group for women in the insurance industry. Hence, the reason we chose “WOMEN OF INSURANCE ANNIVERSARY CONFERENCE” as the name of our event.
Lastly, if those reasons are not enough, our entire Training Team as well as our Event Speakers are all 100% WOMEN and of course our organization is led 100% by WOMEN! Everything we have set in place has been intentionally designed with women in mind.
We have training for all lines and all levels covered; we have entertainment provided by Comedian Erin Jackson; we have a formal dinner with prizes and Live Jazz; we have 2 phenomenal International Keynote Speakers and Trainers, Elyse Archer and Cheri Tree; we have Mental Health Therapist, Carly Samudre speaking on the importance of mental health and entrepreneurship; we have multiple smaller events taking place within our main event with countless networking opportunities and of course we will be showing all the fathers in attendance much appreciation throughout the entire weekend by creating a space just for them in addition to our Doughnuts with Dad celebration to close out our event and to kickoff Father's Day.
We have so many more amazing things planned for our conference and an absolutely beautiful venue at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, TN. This resort is actually the largest non casino resort in the entire country which means there will be plenty to explore throughout the amazing weekend we have planned.
Can't wait to see you there!
