Agent Summit 2018: Thank you for Attending


Randy Crisorio here, closing out the “Money” with a bang! Agent Summit VIII was a hit from start to finish.

The Palazzo and Venetian was awesome, and Vegas delivered its perfect location as always. With that said, what sticks out for me is the many F&I professionals that gathered day and night to exchange the latest ideas, break bread, and enjoy some adult beverages.

No doubt we all left with some tips to advance our cause and grow our stash. Yet, I can’t get over the quality of the content. ‘Agent Principals Only’ session aside, which was a monster hit all by itself, the workshops, panels and speakers cranked it out at a high level.

Jimmy Atkinson led the way with an exposé on the state of our industry followed by a compliance session and compliance gameshow, and that gameshow was a Summit first. We covered the surging ancillary market with an executive panel, digital retailing with Maxim Jr., of course, and for the first time, training field operatives was presented by John Tabar and drew a long line of follow-up from attendees.

Ritch Wheeler (the Mayor) stole a line from the President with “Make Coaching Great Again”. Tom O’Neil killed it again with “Competitive Targets” and leaked money secrets never before revealed. Then to finish the day, Harlene Doane talked the lifeblood of any business — people. How to get them and how to keep them.

The final morning delivered an unforgettable collection of reinsurance experts that talked updated regulations, which will most certainly alter the marketing plans of all involved. And there was a lot of new info here absorbed by the agent body.

Bottom line — an outstanding Summit. And I want to thank all of this year’s contributors and that includes a load of sponsors, every subject matter expert that delivered on stage, Bobit Business Media, and Team Gesualdo, that does the heavy lifting bringing it all together.

I’ve experienced far more thank you’s from participants this year than ever before and that includes a host of electronic thank you’s broadcast through the internet. So…put those thoughts and ideas to good use to prepare for Agent Summit IX, in the Palazzo and Venetian of Las Vegas, in May 2019!

Have a fabulous year!
