Field leaders, their teams, Home Office staff members, and carrier provider representatives converge at Leaders Convention each year. The multi-day event is jam-packed with information, education, motivation and recognition. The event is designed to inspire and empower field associates who attend to maximize their business opportunity.
Leaders Convention creates the perfect atmosphere for learning and training. Field and Home Office leaders offer advice on how to run a successful business, how to build teams and leaders, and how to take a business to the next level. Industry professionals and carrier company executives share insights with the group on a wide-range of topics, including new products and industry issues. Attendees hear from veteran leaders and rising stars who share their stories and successes with the crowd.
The highlight of any Leaders Convention is its awards presentations. First Financial Security associates at all levels have the opportunity to be recognized on stage for their achievements.
What You Missed at LC16:
Leaders Convention 2016 occurred Aug. 25-27 at The M Resort Spa & Casino in Las Vegas. With a theme of 10 Years of Business Excellence, this important FFS event shined a spotlight on and commemorate our successes during the past 10 years in business. It offered focused training and skills development opportunities for those who attend. We used the event to unify our vision, to reenergize our representatives and put them on a path toward continued growth.
A large number of FFS representatives attended and we heard from representatives of at least four of our carrier partners, as well as key field leaders and Home Office executives. The event kicked off on Wed., Aug. 24 with a pre-convention day for move-in, meetings with field leadership, and carrier breakout sessions and training.
Each of the three days focused on different aspects of the business:
- Sat., Aug. 25 – Regional Marketing Directors. When an FFS representative reaches the RMD level, he or she is a true entrepreneur, with more independence and responsibility to drive the business forward. Sessions for this day focussed on the skills and tools RMDs need to effectively run their businesses.
- Sat., Aug. 26 – Industry Day. The Financial Services/Insurance industry and our relationships with our carrier partners have been instrumental in our success during the past decade. Among the many topics discussed were product testimonials, sales resources and training, the state of the industry, field underwriting, and more. That evening, FFS celebrated its 10 years of business excellence with an Awards Gala, after party and a private concert performed by Kool and the Gang!
- Sat., Aug. 27 – Next Gen Next Ten. As one decade ends, another begins. If FFS is to continue to have an impact on the industry and the communities we serve, we need to intensify our efforts to ensure all Americans have access to innovative financial products and education. We are looking to grow our next generation of leaders to take the company to the next level.
