Keynote Speaker: 

Scott Burrows

Sponsored by Caliber Home Loans


As an all-star athlete, Scott played college football at FSU and was a top-ranked kickboxing champion whose last fight was broadcast by ESPN. During the height of his athletic career, Scott survived a horrific car crash, suffering a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the chest down. With singular focus, however, he boosted his recovery using the principles of Vision-Mindset-Grit and eventually found himself competing again—this time in a sport called full-contact wheelchair rugby, aka Murderball.

After graduating from college, Scott qualified for the Million Dollar Round Table in the insurance industry, a 100% commission-driven sales award. At the pinnacle of that career, he was involved in a second automobile accident.

 New injuries forced him to RE-evaluate, RE-invent and once again RE-ignite his life. As a result, he decided to leave an industry he had so much passion for to pursue an opportunity to partner with his brother, who was expanding his golf course fertilizer business into Southeast Asia.

Today, as a keynote motivational speaker and bestselling author, Scott delivers presentations around the globe, sharing his compelling story of tragedy and triumph. His real-life experiences, captivating message of perseverance and eloquent storytelling are sure to leave you spellbound.

Ready to maximize every lead you receive?

One essential key to lead conversion is having a proven sales process. Consistent success in sales demands a clear, concise, and repeatable process that can easily be tracked, adjusted and personalized. By approaching every lead in the same manner it is easier to identify what Loan Officers are doing right and where there are opportunities for improvement.

In this session, Loan Officers will:

 Discover two key components that contribute to maximizing lead conversion

• Learn a Proven Sales Process that provides a plan to turn hot leads into new customers

• Learn a process for presenting transaction details clearly and concisely

• Uncover a method for successfully overcoming objections throughout the conversation

A Loan Officer’s ability to convert leads serves more than the obvious purpose; increase production. It increases their professionalism in the eyes of customers and referral sources.
