From Service Provider to Mission Champion: How to Maximize Your Relationship with Insurance Advisors
Wednesday, March 17th at 2 pm Eastern
Insurance agents and brokers who specialize in helping nonprofits are too often an underutilized, untapped resource. In some cases, that’s because nonprofit buyers believe that coverage is a commodity and mistakenly only view their agent or broker as a salesperson. In other instances, it’s because the agent or broker fails to communicate the ‘value-added’ support and services they can provide. This webinar explores agents’ and brokers’ roles and strategies for maximizing the value your insurance advisor brings to your mission. Learn how to transform the relationship into one that advances your mission while ensuring that your nonprofit has the coverage your mission needs.
