Teaching in the Insurance Industry
Minshall began hiring and training people at Kemper, and her office became known as a training ground for new recruits.
From Kemper, Minshall later went to work for a commercial lines agency, which enabled her to see the industry from a different point of view. In 2003, she joined HSI and began teaching courses out of Florida, where she resides.
“It was like teaching college level classes,” said Minshall. “The classes were full of young adults who chose to be there and wanted to learn – the group I had always wanted to be involved with, regardless of subject matter.”
Within a few years, her role at HSI expanded geographically and she began to travel more. After three years of travel a new opportunity presented itself that would enable her to stay closer to home and still continue to teach.
In 2008, Minshall began to teach webinars on a wide range of insurance topics. Not only could she now spend less time traveling, the webinars also empowered insurance professionals from all over the country to receive high-quality training without leaving their desks.
Benefits of Virtual Education
It’s not only lack of travel that appealed to Minshall, but the other opportunity that creating webinars affords: a chance to spend time researching instead of traveling.
