Captivate The Room Logo

Captivate the Room provides an incredible immersion into all aspects of how you use your voice to lead, connect and sell. Insurance Industry professionals will learn how to use their voice to communicate in more effective ways with current clients, future prospects and their own internal teams. Participants will learn to use their voices in a way that saves time, builds connections and influences and persuades.

In the program, we work on:

  • Connection, what is blocking your ability to create quick connections and establish yourself as the perfect fit for a company’s business.

  • Impact and influence, adjusting your voice so you lead with authority to save you time and get more of what you want quickly as you lead others strategically and effectively. 

  • Vocal variety and creating emotional connection so you compel others to take the actions you want them to take.

Burand & Associates, LLC is an advocate of agencies which constructively manage and improve their contingency contracts by learning how to negotiate and use their contingency contracts more effectively. We maintain that agents can achieve considerably better results without ever taking actions that are detrimental or disadvantageous to the insureds. We have never and would not ever recommend an agent or agency implement a policy or otherwise advocate increasing its contingency income ahead of the insureds' interests.
