DLE Advisory Board Member and 2019 retreat alum, Cam Besse, recently completed two weeks at the Hartford School of Insurance in Connecticut, where he earned a Commercial Lines Coverage Specialist designation and a degree from the prestigious insurance school.
Cam, who is an Account Executive at Berkshire Fairfield Insurance in Pittsfield, MA, says the experience delivered big networking dividends as well with his 20 fellow participants, who were insurance professionals traveling from as far as Texas and all of various ages and industry experience.
“The education was amazing and the relationships I made were priceless,” he notes. “Everyone came away with at least one new connection that will pay off in the long run.”
One key topic of conversation at the program, notes Cam, was how people network and other methods to build professional connections. In response, he shared the value of the DLE to others and suggested others to join or even create their own networking groups in their hometowns.
“Most of the class seemed to have difficulty finding a consistent outlet to meet like-minded professionals,” he adds. “It was another reminder of how grateful I am to have the DLE as a constant source for networking, education and entertainment.”
