At the beginning of the year – either in January or early February, First Financial Security’s Headquarters team welcomes field leaders to Jump Start. This important kick-off event has evolved into an intensive, two days of business building, system and leadership training.
Yet it still remains one of the best ways for field representatives to gain insight into the year ahead. Jump Start sets the tone by providing leaders who attend with a first look at the direction, programs and services, and materials that will roll out in the coming months. Attendees meet with Home Office staff, hear from preferred carrier professionals, and learn from key field leaders. Outstanding performance is recognized as leaders receive awards and honors during the two-day meeting.
The themes for the past two Jump Starts, as well as the upcoming 2017 event are linked together and reference the organization’s tremendous growth in recent years:
2015 – Inevitable. The 2015 Jump Start event explored the ways that the organization had positioned itself to achieve “inevitable” success. First Financial Security had filled key executive positions in the home office, made good on its commitment to innovate on all levels, and put into place programs that would not only invigorate the company, but would allow it to realize its goal to change the face of insurance.
2016 – Unstoppable. FFS marked 10 years of business excellence in 2016, and Jump Start served as the official start of a year-long celebration. The event was the first of many that recognized the organization for being an “unstoppable” force for positive change within the financial services industry.
Momentum has been on First Financial Security, Inc.’s side. The Atlanta-headquartered financial services company had debuted new marketing, branding and messaging strategies. FFS had embarked on an ambitious and noble cause to bring financial education, empowerment and entrepreneurial opportunities to all people.
2017 – Unleashed. FFS’ upcoming Jump Start event, Jan. 20-21, 2017, moves to the Minneapolis (MN) Convention Center, following two years in Atlanta. It will again offer building and leadership training, but an emphasis will be placed on “unleashing” FFS’ vision of helping all Americans achieve financial security and peace of mind.
No matter the year, Jump Start is a must-attend event for any leader who is serious about his or her business. The event has been known to ignite explosive growth within the organizations whose leaders have attended. It’s vital to your success to be there!
