Negotiation & Sales Skills in the Age of Uncertainty (Virtual Seminar)

February 24, 2021, 1:30 - 3:00 PM

Presented by Saskatchewan Mutual Insurance

Event_Images/Dirk_Schlimm.jpgThe insurance marketplace is more competitive now than it has ever been. Add in the impacts of COVID-19, along with unprecedented technological, societal, and economic disruption, and one truth is resoundingly clear: The ability to ethically influence, negotiate, and ultimately sell will increasingly spell the difference between growth and contraction in your brokerage’s book of business.

Join Dirk Schlimm, top-rated speaker and author of Influencing Powerful People, for a presentation and interactive conversation on how to implement practical strategies and tools to drive sales. Dirk will explain why personality, passion, and a ‘love for the game’ are no longer enough (especially amidst a hard market), and what skills are must-haves for sustained sales success in ‘the new normal.’

This session will feature a 60-minute presentation followed by a 30 minute participant Q&A. IBAS broker members are eligible to receive 1 CE credit hour.
