Insurance Industry Keynote Speech
The insurance business is heavily regulated and Patrick’s programs are specifically designed for insurance agents and brokers. Even with these regulations, however, tremendous opportunities exist for insurance professionals to build awareness and attract new clients by using modern technology platforms (including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube). Insurance agents can create value-packed PDF report to give away for free. They can create educational videos on YouTube. They can create educational “info-graphics” about their business. And certainly, insurance companies can help their agents by tagging their agents in photos with prospective clients.
The vast majority of insurance agents on social media are just wasting time. They might be having fun. They might be “being social” but they’re not attracting new clients. They’re not building revenue. In his 60-minute keynote program, Patrick walks attendees through a series of case histories that are specifically tailored for insurance agents. He is familiar with insurance vernacular including MGAs, soft markets versus hard markets, and surplus lines. Patrick Schwerdtfeger is the ideal speaker for your insurance audience.
