(UDS), who will serve as advisory board chair for the fourth consecutive year. “When I reflect on what we’ve been able to accomplish in quality and participation, I’m as excited as ever to get Agent Summit VI in the fast lane.”

Braganini Joins Agent Summit Roster

LAS VEGAS — Organizers of Agent Summit 2012 have announced that John Braganini, principal of Great Lakes Companies, will deliver the event’s evening keynote address. The second annual Agent Summit, scheduled for March 12-14 at Caesars Palace Las Vegas is organized by Agent Entrepreneur and presented in partnership with F&I and Showroom.

The event will kick off on the evening of March 12, 2012, and continue with educational sessions, panel discussions and exhibits for the next two days. David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and Showroom, said that Braganini fits the bill perfectly.

“We look for two strengths in our speakers: success, and a willingness to share their secrets for it,” Gesualdo said. “Brags has both of those in spades.”

Braganini told F&I and Showroom that his address, titled “Smart Today, Success Tomorrow,” will focus on long-term strategies for success. “I will identify 10 agency operations and management strategies that we have used to build and develop the Great Lakes Companies over a 25-year period,” he said.
