YBA Leadership and Sales Conference Just Two Weeks Away!

In less than two weeks, June 9th-11th when the Leadership & Sales Conference will be held in beautiful Napa Valley!

You won't want to miss keynote speaker, Adam DeGradide, CEO of Astonish Results, who will present at Saturday’s Awards Luncheon.  Adam will surely be energetic and insightful with his take on “Insurance Marketing in the Digital Age.” He was recently keynote speaker at the GAMA International Conference and is currently in Florida as keynote at the NetVu Conference. Astonish Results has helped thousands of agencies nationwide build their digital marketing systems and has transformed the way insurance professionals view traditional marketing.

Friday’s Thank the Sponsors Luncheon features IBA All-Stars, Tim Manaka, Andrew Valdivia, John Morey, and Jim Armitage on a mentor panel who will give their take on being successful in the insurance industry, their opinions on the marketplace and will answer your questions. Here sponsors will be recognized for their help to make this event possible! 

This year’s conference is packed with professional development and continuing education workshops developed by industry insurance education expert,  Cheryl Koch, IBA West Education Managing Director, to help you succeed. Once again, Jeff Wodicka, CIC, Chairman & CEO Casswood Insurance, Agency & National Program Director, Dynamics of Selling will be teaching "Professional Development/Sales Track - Soaring To Sales Success."  

New to the conference this year, conference attendees  will have access to four  1-Hour Group Sales Coaching Webinars as part of their registration fee! The webinars are valued at more than $150 and will be held each quarter, starting in August.

As always there will be plenty of activities, food and fun that YBA is known for. Grand Sponsor Monarch E&S Insurance Services has chartered the Napa Valley Wine Train, Napa's most unique restaurant. The train itself is a collection of early 20th Century rail cars that are pure Americana. Plan to be onboard Friday night following the Tradeshow.
