ibaa convention: connectWhat a blast!

Keynote speaker Richard Bartrem (WestJet) inspired us with a corporate culture that cares for "guests" (not "clients" or "customers," but "guests"), for each other, and for the company. This bonding with people (not commodities) resonated with the BIP message and echoed as the trade show buzzed with conversation. The CEO panel connected us with upcoming trends, while the AGM kept us in touch with each other. The seminars emphasized grassroots connections, proactive SWOT team planning, and hypnotically programming your GPS (Great Programmable Subconscious). We danced, sang, ate, and networked with each other to dueling piano tunes during hospitality night. To crown it all, IBAA's new president, Julia Marshall, took control of the reins with her caring manner and black-and-white red-carpet gala that kicked off our charity fundraising campaign with a bang.

dance offBrokers and insurance company partners mingled throughout the convention and especially at the Peace Hills kickoff party, the trade show, hospitality night, the president's gala, and the golf tournament.

Roger Marcelo from RSA (aka Michael Jackson) and Barry Haggis from Young & Haggis brought convention's theme of connection into their dance off as they refused to take turns and ended in acrobatic embrace.
Banff Springs Golf What a beautiful day at the Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course. With a breathtaking view in all directions, the course is captivating and challenging. The optical illusions created by the mountains towering overhead can deceive the eye of even the most skilled player.

The tournament also raised over $2000 for the Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade (WICC)!
