The September social event was a big hit! We had over 30 people attend and get to know other Innovative #AgentsofChange in the health insurance industry.

One of the best phrases I heard was “FORWARD-DOERS”.  We are Forward-Thinkers, but there’s an extra step after thinking, which is DOING!  The Forward Doers were out at this event and we shared ideas of how to revolutionize our industry. It was very powerful.

Besides stimulating conversation, we had great food, an ActiveBooth photobooth and plenty of Ping Pong.  Ideas were shared about LinkedIn as a powerful marketing tool, for picking up clients, innovative blog ideas, and much more!

Connections were made and contact info was exchanged. We implemented the “Triple Play” which Michelle had learned from one of her networking groups called Athletes Touch (they gave permission for us to do it).  The idea is that after the event, groups of 3 are formed and in those groups people should get together for lunch, breakfast, a workout, or some sort of meeting to get to know each other better.  Once we know more about each other’s roles, we can truly help make powerful introductions and connections. Only then can we leverage the power of our network!

We had two drawings, thanks to Laura Berens from Jawbone, and Steven Griswold from Griswold & Griswold Insurance.  Here are the winners!

It was a ground-breaking event and we can’t wait for the next one on October 15th!
