For the first time ever, there are five generations in the workforce (soon to be six or seven); each with their own perspectives, experiences and attitudes. If you are looking for new clients, this is the pool of prospects you are fishing from. Effectively communicating across generations can be frustrating or exhilarating. Learn skills and techniques that will help you navigate generational diversity so you can facilitate connections, enhance communication, and effectively serve new generations of clients.

To face the omnipresent competition, brokers will have to find innovative and creative ways to find profitable clients, extend their offering, and provide higher value to clients. To succeed, it is imperative to possess several abilities in business development, win-win selling and customer value creation in order to differentiate yourself effectively. It is in this perspective that the session “The WOW effect!” was developed. This interactive session is based on practice and applicability. It has been developed with numerous successful brokers to adapt it to your needs and expectations. During the presentation, strategies, examples, and real-life success stories will be suggested to make your experience as valuable as possible.
