No insurance topic is too big or too small— in 2019 we discussed the insurance issues surrounding:

What is a Lunch-n-Learn?

Have you ever attended an insurance webinar that you thought would be really interesting, but it turned out to be the equivalent of watching AND listening to paint dry? We all have.

Linda McHenry and I both agreed we could do better, and started tossing around ideas for a FUN webinar we could co-host each month—and the A.D. Banker Lunch-n-Learn series was born!

Linda brings decades of experience as a licensed producer, registered rep, professional writer, speaker, and course developer to each topic. My background spans nearly 25 years in insurance education, compliance, and training. We ask the questions YOU want answered, and sometimes ask questions you’ve never even considered. Each webinar is free to attend with the goal of presenting insurance related topics that you as a listener will find interesting, relevant, maybe controversial, but always entertaining and informative.

Complete your Continuing Education ahead of schedule!

Can I get professional development credit?

Each Lunch-n-Learn runs about 45 to 60 minutes and qualifies for professional development certification upon request, as well as counting towards your Associate or Fellow designation CE requirement if you are a member of the Securities and Insurance Licensing Association (SILA).

Topics: Securities, Insurance, Continuing Education, Adjuster
