THE ASCEND LEGACY

Three years ago I attended my first Ascend conference, it changed the direction of my agency, my thought process, and what was possible for my clients. Through the NextGen Mastermind, we have increased the number of self-funded clients, reduced clients costs year after year, added consulting only clients, and increased revenue in just 2020 by over 42% .

DAN LaBROAD

CEO | OVATION HEALTH

Another great conference for forward-thinking consultants! 

Jeff Glass

McConkey Insurance & Benefits 

Wonderful meeting!

A lot of innovative people and amazing ideas for strategic solutions. 

Rachel Miner

Employee Benefit Advisors

ASCEND and the Mastermind have completely transformed my business. Instead of trying to chase and duplicate what the “industry” says we should be doing (which conveniently makes the carriers and larger broker houses a lot of money), we are creating a new way of doing things that returns that lost money back to our customers with the goal of delivering better results for the employers and better benefits and quality of care for their employees.

Ben Conner

Benefits adviser | Conner Insurance

Ascend made business fun for me again. I was so bored with previous strategies, I was preparing to exit the industry. Ascend, being a collaborative partnership, has given me a much larger footprint, enabling me to compete with the larger firms, and win.

JEFF FOX

Senior Benefits Consultant | Conner Insurance

There is no other conference like ASCEND Summit.      What a difference you guys have made for me and my career! 

 

Gary Becker

Partner | Becker Benefit Group 

 Attending ASCEND was far and away the SINGLE GREATEST MILESTONE to date in the history of our third-generation agency. We’re coming off the best year in the history of our company.
