Creative Marketing, Overland Park, Kan., recently hosted the Learn to Earn Agent Sales Summit, Oct. 8-10, 2008, in the Kansas City area. The conference was a success, according to a number of the hundreds of agents in attendance. Eighteen of the industry’s top producers gave presentations, along with keynote speaker, Larry Winget, the self-proclaimed “pit-bull of personal development.”

What began as a concentrated effort to meet the demands of agents and provide real-world training by real-life million dollar-plus producers has now evolved into the declaration of an annual event.

“The response and feedback about Learn to Earn has been remarkable and very encouraging,” said Mike “Cy” Cajthaml, CFP, a lead organizer of Learn to Earn and senior vice president of Tailor Made, a division of Creative Marketing. “The industry has spoken, and we heard them! We will come back with the sequel in 2009.”

The two-day sales summit featured a concentration of million dollar-plus personal producer presenters and attendees. With more than 250 attendees, 19 training sessions, dozens of carrier sponsors, industry service providers and special guests on hand, as well as media sponsor, Senior Market Advisor magazine, the event offered agents sales strategies, products, and support to facilitate their success. Agents in attendance were able to learn firsthand the crafts of their trade and the secrets to success from others who have achieved the highest levels of accomplishment and are still actively maintaining a thriving business.

The 2009 Learn to Earn Agent Sales Summit, which will again be hosted by Creative Marketing, has been slated for October 7-9, in Kansas City. Presentation topics will include sales and marketing methods, the psychology behind selling, consumer behavior, financial strategy, best practices, and more from the top producing agent’s experiences.

The “education for agents by agents” event is open to the industry; however, attendees must be a qualified, insurance licensed agent or advisor. To learn more, visit www.cm-learntoearn.net or call Creative Marketing at 1-800-992-2642.
