    • Business

Welcome to this exciting episode of 'Up to Speed', featuring the vibrant mind of Drake Slaikeu-Lawhead, Head of Growth at ITC Agents Vegas. In today's digital age, this episode delves deep into the value of in-person trade shows and conferences and their immense relevance even in the era of unparalleled technological advancement.
Drake uses his years of experience to shed light on the insatiable desire for in-person events despite the past few years of COVID restrictions and the irreplaceable role of face-to-face networking. We explore how, despite the rise of webinars and podcasts, the essence of in-person interactions remains untouched by digital platforms.
The conversation takes an interesting twist as we discuss the underlying fears of many insurance agents over the potential replacement of their jobs by InsurTech. Contrary to previous predictions, Drake asserts confidently that InsurTech is not here to replace agents but to improve and facilitate their work.
We also explore the forthcoming InsurTech Connect (ITC) event in October. Drake provides an exclusive preview of unique sessions designed to inspire insurance agents to embrace the digital age, covering everything from adding value to businesses in a tough market to customer acquisition strategies.
Finally, Drake offers priceless advice for making the most out of the conference. Highlights include balancing structured networking activities with unstructured time to deliver a well-rounded networking experience. This deep dive into the world of professional events shows that they are not just expenses, but vital investments in one's growth and development.
