In our second podcast episode, Vanessa speaks to insurance professional Bob Mazey who is the President of the New Jersey Agents Alliance. Bob is a dynamic entrepreneur, industry thought leader, and inspiring leader. He lives by the mantra that “not every good idea has been taken” and there is always room for innovation. Bob enables his organization, which is comprised of independently owned insurance agencies, to compete and operate on a larger scale -- crucial for succeeding in today’s competitive world. His leadership style focuses on analyzing data and making strategic decisions based on information because, without data, “everything else is just an opinion.” He focuses his energies on recognizing his business’ greatest asset, employees, and never forgets that no matter how much technology enhances and simplifies, clients still want a personal connection. If today’s pandemic has taught business owners one thing, it is that companies that embrace change and adapt stay “relevant” and can thrive. “Change is good, change is fun, change helps you grow.” His parting words of advice are: “make work fun” and don’t be afraid of failure, it is an “opportunity to do better.” Above all, leaders “must believe in themselves.” Please join us for a deep dive into how to grow your business, collaborate, and adapt to change.
