Gem Young is committed to constantly improving the knowledge level of our staff. No matter how long we’ve been in the business, there’s always something new to learn.

Recently, two of our Risk Management Advisors, Denny White and Leo Daprile Jr, attended a week long training session at one of our partner companies, Auto-Owners. We asked them each to share a little bit of their experience at the training session and what they took away from it.

Denny White

I had a great time at the Auto-Owners class. I’ve been doing this for a long time but the class really opened up my eyes to some alternative approaches to generating quality clientele. The class was very comprehensive and was taught by some very successful agents in the insurance business, giving the class some serious validity. The Auto-Owners branch is beautiful and it was great to put a name to some of the faces of the company. Our classmates were also top notch and I hope to stay in touch with them for the remainder of my career in the business.

Leo Daprile, Jr

My experience at the Auto-Owners Producer Development Program was both eye-opening and motivating. As a new agent, I am constantly learning more and more about the insurance industry and simultaneously refining my craft. The lessons I learned at the school advanced my sales skills and insurance knowledge tenfold. With my new knowledge, I have set my goals high and am motivated to advance my career.

Gem Young has made a commitment to training. Our goal is to have the best trained staff in the Mahoning Valley and to partner with insurance companies who support that goal.
