NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- When Governor Mike Huckabee took the stage to speak with First Financial Resources (FFR) two weeks before presidential elections, he declared that "Donald Trump will be the next president." At the time, the audience was more than skeptical. Fast forward to March 2017, Governor Huckabee returns to greet a record attendance audience at the FFR Spring Sales and Marketing Symposium at the Montage Resort & Spa in Laguna Beach. All eyes are on Huckabee. This group is curious, intrigued and wanting more of the governor's insights. "The election was a disruption, essentially an overthrow of what people were sick of," explains Huckabee. Now President Trump faces the threat of the "Washington bubble." How does Trump stay connected with the people who elected him? "President Trump's rallies are more for him than his audience. They keep him in touch with the people that elected him," explains Huckabee.
Adding Huckabee's insights, the FFR gathering included two informal "executive chats" starting with Pacific Life Insurance Company chairman, president and CEO, James T. Morris and followed by Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company's president and COO, David O'Malley. Both senior executives commented on how the extended low interest rates challenge insurers to look for interest yield without taking on additional risk. CEO Morris also added that, "Being a mutual company does give us the advantage of taking the longer view," than stock companies that have to be mindful of quarterly earnings. Both executive chats were peppered with lively discussion in response to the questions posed by the FFR member audience.
The FFR gathering's topics ranged from Huckabee's Trump update, current news, and topics to help an advisor grow their practice. Hallway conversations were lively and engaging. "A speaker or a topic may inspire an agenda for one of our seven study groups. Or, a conversation may just give birth to a new market idea. Either way, it is a great way for our members to connect with each other," explains Jud Imhoff, CEO of FFR.
