Go Big Event at Turning Stone Casino

Date: May 13th & 14th
Location: Turning Stone Casino

Convergence.  Some wild roads of the past few years have brought us to this moment. COVID. New workflows of in-person, to remote, to hybrid, to whatever today is. A hard market. A turnover of leadership, or leadership about to transition. New people joining the team without insurance, or even office, experience.
The roads are converging. It’s the perfect time to get our new bearings. To learn what tools we need in our pack, what people on the journey we need to talk to, what skills will help with survival, and what path will lead us to where we need to go.
Go Big will bring together what and who you need to know in one place. 
It’s the right event, at the right time, for your agency.

And with an exciting new venue, it will be more fun than ever.

  • 2:00 – 2:50 PM: CONNECT & CONQUER: NETWORKING BOOTCAMP  |  Nancy Langton and Friends, New Level Partners
    Let’s face it: for most of us, networking isn’t easy. Starting a conversation, transitioning, or getting out can be a challenge, let alone getting out of the conversation what we need to. Don’t worry; you will have new skills (or a brush-up) after just this one session!
  • 3:00 – 3:30 PM: WORKPLACE ETIQUETTE: THE 2024 RULES OF ENGAGEMENT  |  Nancy Langton and Friends, New Level Partners
    We’re in uncharted times. Some people are in the office, some out, some on video. How we engage with our team and customers has changed. And we may have become a little out of practice or less disciplined in our workplace and business etiquette. What are the rules of engagement today? What manners still matter? Give us 30 minutes, and we’ll get you up to speed and improving your personal brand.
  • 3:00 – 4:00 PM: MASTERING AGENCY FINANCIALS – FIVE ESSENTIAL INSIGHTS   |  Don Polczynski, Jr, & Roe Polczynski, AgencyCFO
    Agency leaders and managers will learn the core financial insights needed for good financial management. 
    Including: Annual Budget and 3 Year Financial Plan, Financial and Operational Benchmarking, New Business and Client Retention Analysis, Carrier Contingency Revenue Forecast and Analysis, Accurate Book of Business Analysis, & Reagan Best Practices.
