The following activities will be held at The Top of the Inn Ballroom:

11 a.m. – 12 p.m.: Delegate Registration

12 – 1:30 p.m.: Keynote Luncheon: 'Building a Cause Through Entrepreneurship & Community'
Sponsored by SGI CANADA

With customers across Canada and the United States, Peace By Chocolate™ is the result of people and passions coming together to advocate for a common cause. Join award-winning entrepreneur and speaker Tareq Hahdhad as he shares his family’s story of escaping war-torn Syria to rekindling the family business in the small community of Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Now the subject of a feature-length movie and best-selling novel, Tareq delves into the challenges that came with forging new ground, navigating rapid growth, and staying true to the values that started it all.

1:30 – 1:45 p.m.: Interactive Networking Break

1:45 – 2:45 p.m.: Panel Discussion: ‘What Your Underwriter Wants You to Know’

Relationships are at the heart of any business — and never before has that been more prevalent than the world of insurance. This panel brings together three leading underwriters from top Saskatchewan insurers to discuss how brokers can better prepare submissions, driver quicker responses, overcome potential hurdles, and maximize customer service.

2:45 – 3 p.m.: Coffee Break

3 – 4:30 p.m.: Workshop: ‘Leaders Taking Flight’

Geese are 71% more efficient when flying in a ‘V’ formation.’ It reduces resistance, conserves energy, and facilitates longer flight times, allowing birds to take turns at the front before falling back for rest. The same concept applies to insurance brokerages and other small businesses. This interactive workshop, led by Instinctive Solutions CEO Warren Barry, will demonstrate how your unique ‘flock’ can take flight towards higher purpose, productivity, and performance. Attendees will learn how to apply practical tools and strategies to significantly improve teamwork in a real-world brokerage setting — while taking ownership of each individual’s leadership role, regardless of position.

The following activities will take place in Carver’s Lounge on the main floor:

4:30 – 6:30 p.m.: Cocktail Reception & Entertainment
Sponsored by Wawanesa Insurance

Join your fellow delegates and Jordyn Pollard, 2022 Saskatchewan Music Awards nominee for ‘Country Artist of the Year’, for great music, engaging conversation, as well as complimentary hors d'oeuvres and refreshments hosted by the IBAS Emerging Brokers Council (EBC) and the 2023 EBC Sponsor, Wawanesa Insurance.
