Workshop Topics

Our workshop topics are based on the different pillars of EDI’s 7 Building Blocks™ – all crucial for a strong strategic, operating, and financial outcome for broker owners and brokerage managers.

Commanding Leadership and Setting Culture
  • Generate more profit by fixing and realigning your organization.
  • Are you frustrated with staff showing up at 9:05am, taking long lunches, talking on the phone repeatedly with friends and family, chatting with their fellow workers, and then packing up 15 minutes prior to 5pm – and not completing their work for the day?
  • Are you equally frustrated with staff not returning emails, treating agents and clients poorly, and not meeting deadlines or goals? The solution starts with this session.
  • Leadership begins with creating your vision, setting your mission, and establishing what will be your organizational values. You can’t lead a group of people if they are not inspired by the destination and you cannot work together as a team if your values are not aligned. We will provide you with structure and process to establish the vision of the organization.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

The EDI approach is refreshingly business focused, no-nonsense and practical. Every attendee left with real implementation steps they could apply to their business to increase revenue, save dollars, and create time. All that and they had fun doing it. I am pretty straight forward in my initial gauge of success and that is to see how many people are still sitting at the end of the session – with 100% of the audience still taking notes in the last minutes, I knew we had hit it out of the park when we hired EDI. What’s more, I am continuing to hear about the ways attendees have made improvements to their business as a result of a few hours we invested in them. Hiring EDI created wins all around.

We had the opportunity to work with EDI at our Verico Annual Conference and we were very pleased with their involvement. The content of their workshop and energetic presentation resulted in high praise as a facilitator and speaker. EDI had the ability to connect with our diversified audience and deliver a down to earth “how to implement” session that was a highlight of the event.

Colin Dreyer

This work will have lasting benefit to our network. Based on what I heard, I would say that this was one of the best received sessions we have done.

Our EDI Implementation Workshop was an interactive, engaging experience for our audience that provided practical recommendations they could begin implementing in their business right away. What’s more, having a quality speaker demonstrated to our attendees that we are making strides to add value to their business in emerging areas.
