I’m a big baseball fan. I know there are people who love the game as much I do and many people who think it is too boring. However, as I was watching the Major League All Star game recently, something hit me in the forehead- what a great bunch of new and young stars!! They are energetic, extremely talented and play for the love of the game (well, that and a few million dollars a year)!
Nonetheless, it got me thinking about the insurance industry - we need new young talent
- we need people who can take our place. We need people who will bring a new enthusiasm and energy to our agencies, our carriers, our partners and our organizations!
Do you have someone like that in your office already? If so, are you supporting them? Leading them? Helping them grow? (Ask me about Big I NY Leadership Academy - it's coming soon!)
Are you working with your local college to identify that next big star? Whether it be internships
, being a guest speaker or participating in career days- we can help! (Ask me about that too!)
Or? How about getting involved with an even younger generation? Have you heard about InVEST
? (If not, that’s right, contact me!!
We here at Big I NY can answer questions, give you guidance and introduce you to a plethora of products, services and programs to help you grow your agency, support your team and recruit for new employees.
Of course, we also offer All Star education, like:
