“It is to our collective benefit to ensure that the talent pool is deep, and cultivating that talent will enable our industry to flourish and grow.”

Well, sort of.  Last week CAAMP forwarded the attached video to all members, and seeing how I did the narration I thought it would be appropriate to use the video as my blog.  In the event you didn’t get a chance to see the video,  it speaks to one of my initiatives, organic growth for the channel.  This is an issue that we as industry should all be cognizant of.  Succession planning is critical for any organization, and the same principles hold true for an industry.  Many of the past and present leaders of our industry still have time to make significant contributions.  But with each passing day we get closer to passing on the leadership torch.  Who will be the ones to take on that responsibility?  Many of our future leaders are among us now, and some maybe contemplating our industry as a vocation.  Identifying future leaders, and providing them with council and visibility, will assist  our industry through transition.  It is to our collective benefit to ensure that the talent pool is deep, and cultivating that talent will enable our industry to flourish and grow.  Where will the next generations of brokers, lenders and insurers going to come from?  Would it not be to our benefit to have university and college students choose brokering as a career path?  Can we continue to count on people just bumping into our industry and deciding that they’ll give it a go?  Our industry is at a crossroads.  Our market share has flatten, intense competitive factors are at play and we all now face the challenge of strong regulatory headwinds.  Our future leaders will have to be far more sophisticated to deal with these issues than we are today.  Our industry is evolving, and it will be imperative that the leadership skill level evolves at the same pace.

Until next time

Hey Boris, I think this is a great way to communicate with CAAMP Members – I come to your blog often, just wanted to let you know that I love what you are doing – your openness in the industry really lets me see where you are coming from. I really appreciate that. I hope the next chair continues these practices. All the best!

    "I work in a world of numbers, process, execution, risk mitigation and all kinds of other sexy stuff. To share my thoughts, opinions and personal tidbits does have some creative appeal for me. It will also push me to do something that I am not totally comfortable with, writing. Get me in front of a room full of people to do a presentation and I'm on. Writing a story that others may actually be interested in reading sounds like a challenge to me. The reality is that I enjoy a good challenge and if it ends up that mom is the only reader of my blog so be it."
