Million Dollar Round Table Aims to Stay Global

Million Dollar Round Table is working to chase away the geopolitical fog and bring together top financial services sales professionals from around the world.

The Park Ridge, Illinois-based group is bringing 4,000 members to Nashville, Tennessee, this week for its second annual meeting since the pandemic began.

Peggy Tsai, the group’s president, talked at a general session on Monday about being able to attend the 2022 MDRT meeting, which was MDRT’s first in-person annual meeting since the pandemic began, in Boston.

“It was wonderful to re-engage with one another away from our computer screens,” Tsai said, according to a written version of her remarks provided by MDRT. “We shared many warm embraces and powerful feelings. That it was good to be alive.”

Now, Tsai said MDRT is moving ahead to support members in all countries.

MDRT has more than 85,000 members in 80 countries and other jurisdictions. Only about 8,000 of the members are based in the United States.

Tsai herself is an advisor based in Taipei, Taiwan.

MDRT recently added an MDRT Academy education arm. The academy serves 630 members in 13 countries, and, in 2022, it added articles and videos in Chinese, Vietnamese and Indonesian as well as in English, Tsai said.

Many members wrote social media posts in Chinese, Spanish and other languages about their pleasure in being able to attend the meeting in person.

Mohsen Salehi, president of Toronto-based Valid Insurance Services, who was born in Iran, noted in a LinkedIn post that he has been attending the MDRT annual meetings for 17 years.

“As a friend and insurance agent, I fervently hope that my colleagues and insurance brokers from Iran will soon have the opportunity to join this highly educational gathering,” Salehi said.
