I think I am starting to see the "proverbial" light at the end of the tunnel. Or at least I hope so.
As New York State begins to “reopen," we will all try to get back to normal as soon as possible. The question is, though, what will be “normal?" I think many things will return to where they were pre-pandemic, but other things will simply be different. I feel education will be one of those things that will be altered going forward- and that can be good.
I firmly believe there still will be the traditional “live classes"- I am a fan of the networking, the flexibility of a good instructor and the piggy backing off of questions asked by others in the class. We plan to offer live classes as soon as we determine the safest way to do that.
However, I feel there will certainly be more online and virtual education. So my questions for you are:
- “How will you take advantage of these on line opportunities?“
- "Will you advocate for these?"
- “Will you encourage your staff to take webinars from their work desk?"
- “Will you be able to better budget and plan for your Continuing Education going forward?"
Please contact us here at Big I NY and we can work with you to better prepare.
I wanted to highlight our partnership with MyAgencyCampus
. They are solid partners with us and offer a great variety of programs. Check them out!
we will be having an “Agent Chat” on Friday morning June 19th with
six agents who will be discussing how their agency operations were affected by
COVID-19, what their reopening plan is, and how this has prepared them for the
Register for Agent Chat: Surviving the Shutdown & Reopening Right
Until next time, stay safe!
