Why Attend?

What does 15 minutes mean to you as an insurance professional?

Mike Foy, President/Owner of Foy Insurance knows the importance to insurance professionals like yourself.

"Saving 15 minutes a day equals a week and half over the course of a year. 10 minutes is a week. In my organization 10 minutes a day with 100 employees just save me TWO employees. Accelerate is time well spent to find ways to improve yourself, your employees and your agency."

What could you do with an extra 62.5 hours? That is 15 minutes per person for a year (based upon a 50 week year).
