They will learn how to create a new agency culture centered on selling more and retaining more clients. And they will learn how to use social media to find, sell, and keep more clients.

The one-day training event will take place at the Residence Inn by Marriott Aventura Mall at 19900 W. Country Club Dr., Aventura, FL 33180.
