NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The team at First Financial Resources (FFR) has final preparations underway for the 2017 FFR University scheduled for August 21-23, 2017 at the Peséa Hotel & Spa in Huntington Beach, California. For 2017, the FFR University's agenda centers around "Go-Direct, Keep Control." Simply put, FFR's business model gives FFR advisors direct access to its core insurance carriers. That way, the FFR advisor keeps control over which product and/or underwriting offer best fits a client's needs.
The "go-direct" model hinges on FFR's philosophy, "You're only as good as your staff." So, it is no surprise that FFR has hosted this event for over 25 years. "With the FFR model, support is localized and closest to the client. A FFR advisor's staff understands what makes a client feel special and important," explains Jud Imhoff, Chief Executive Officer, FFR.
The 2017 FFR University's curriculum hits on four key professional development areas: communications, product, underwriting and technology. Lynette Ward, Senior Consultant, Leadership Choice is the keynote speaker. Her interactive presentation will help attendees learn to use communication as a business tool to increase success. FFR also taps its core carriers' experts and combines them with its own internal staff to provide attendees with insights, updates, lively discussion, success story exchanges, and practical advice to help you be "really good at what you do." Subjects covered will include: product features and niches, underwriting specialties, and using technology to gain business efficiencies. With the beautiful Pacific Ocean as a backdrop, attendees will be briefed on industry issues, grow professionally, reconnect with colleagues and network with new members. "What FFR does for a member's staff would be very time-intensive and costly for a single advisor to do alone. The FFR business model allows the advisor to maintain independence and offer the professional development of a larger company," adds Imhoff.
