"The webinar idea is great, as it allows us to attend without traveling, and Keith does such a wonderful job of presenting.  I always learn a lot at his classes, and it brings us back to discussing methods of servicing, selling and documentation, which we tend to drift away from after a time. "  Linda Kobza, Insurance Services, David City
