"Dan's strategies on opening and closing a sales presentation have helped me improve my closing ratio to over 75%. I highly recommend him to any insurance professional."

~ Jason Webb - Bell-Anderson Insurance (Bellevue, WA)

I've been on both sides of the fence. For over 17 years I worked in sales as an independent agent selling multiple lines of coverage. Today, I work as a member of the insured's team and experience how agents interact with their prospects and clients on a daily basis.

My industry experience as an underwriter, agent, risk manager, consultant, and entrepreneur will help you grow faster in your career regardless of where you are today. My experience as an award-winning speaker and trainer will improve your development as a presenter so you can more clearly deliver your message to your clients and prospects.

"Dan is an expert in the field of insurance, as well as an excellent communicator/teacher of his expertise. He is a wealth of information. I find great value in his wisdom and suggestions. He is a very positive, energetic, personable and encouraging individual. He is very involved and respected in his community. He is the most reliable and responsive businessman I have ever dealt with. I greatly value our business relationship."

~ Debra Linn Allbee, Farmers Insurance agency principal

~ Jason Mayer, Risk Manager – EHL Insurance (Poulsbo, WA)

"This year our firm decided to enhance our annual Strategic Planning meeting with the use of presentation coaches. I had the pleasure of receiving coaching advice from Dan Weedin. There were several items that impressed me regarding Dan's coaching techniques, but there is one nugget that stands out. Dan provided me with the encouragement I needed to use my creativity when making a presentation regardless of the audience. The result, a presentation that usually consists of numbers and stats turned into a fun way to show our staff having fun together while considering our future plans."

~ Krysten Bernal - Marketing Director and Head of Administration - Michael J. Hall & Company (Poulsbo, WA)
