Each conference featured special guest speaker Daymond John, founder and CEO of FUBU and the Shark Tank Group, and investor in the hit TV show “Shark Tank,” who shared with the virtual audience suggestions on how to be successful through challenging times and how to be resilient during change. He also shared recognition for each of the agents, agencies and producers who won high accolades.
In his remarks, W&S Agency President Troy Brodie shared his thoughts about the theme of the conference. “Leading through disruption is not to be confused with living through disruption. Living through disruption leads us to words like coping, existing, managing, dealing with and adapting. Leading through disruption however, is a higher bar and forces the mindset of responding and not reacting – and to making adjustments to our practice with the focus of prospering and growing. Business as usual will not work today.”
“Despite our current environment, Western & Southern Financial Group stands tall – we are well positioned to deliver the financial solutions our policyholders and clients need,” Barrett said. “Our capital position is still among the absolute strongest of all life insurance companies, and we are prepared to weather the volatility of the markets and meet the shifting needs of our environment and our customers.”
