Poker Power: Young Agents Council (YAC)
Sponsoring Women’s Virtual Poker Tournament
What can a group of smart women in the insurance industry learn from poker?
THE ANSWER IS: QUITE A LOT.
Poker and insurance go really well together as a solution to stack your skills and accelerate your success.
At the poker table, you have to prudently manage risk, work with imperfect information, and enter into positive expected value decisions to help your clients navigate the insurance ecosystems.
Critical thinking becomes second nature. You’ll not only learn how to tell a story but how to assess others’ motivations. Take calculated risks with imperfect information. Size up the cards you’ve been dealt and read your opponents, then respond with confidence. Poker teaches you to make strategic decisions around money by giving you the edge to assess how and when to maximize your value or cut your losses. The poker table is where deals are made, where friendships are forged, where winners take all but share the wealth.
Poker Power teaches poker to women in the workforce and gives them the skills to succeed in business and life. Our corporate community includes J.P. Morgan, Stripe, Comcast, VISA, Morningstar, WIPFLI & Northwestern Kellogg School of Management–just to name a few. Join the movement and see how big one little card game can be.
