      ”For any corporate leader aspiring to advance their career in the life insurance industry, the LIMRA LLIF program is the most effective and relevant curriculum I’ve experienced. Each session is guided by some of the foremost thought leaders in the key functional areas essential to running a life insurance organization. Instructors and facilitators are experts in their respective fields of knowledge and guide you through an engaging process to learn and grow. Whether diving into the financials of a company, or developing innovative and creative marketing approaches, or learning how to ethically lead high-performing teams, you will be engaged and challenged all along the way. More importantly, you attend sessions with peers and leaders throughout the life insurance industry who may become additional resources and mentors to you for the remainder of your career.

      I feel better prepared to face the challenges of tomorrow and help in guiding my company through strategy discussions as a result of my experiences in the LIMRA LLIF program.“
