LAS VEGAS, NV – May 24, 2021 ​ – Organizers of the annual Agent Summit announced that Bob Harkins, vice president of training for the American Guardian Group of Companies will return to the Agent Summit stage as the event’s master of ceremonies. The 2021 event is scheduled for August 29 – September 1, at the Bellagio Las Vegas.

Harkins is a respected trainer in the F&I space, and his wealth of experience makes him the ideal candidate to collaborate with presenters and offer his knowledge to attendees. He has worked with NADA’s Dealer Candidate Academy, manufacturers’ dealer development programs, and state dealer associations. Currently, Harkins designs and presents finance and insurance, compliance, and ethics seminars and workshops for dealerships, dealer groups, administrators, and general agents.

“After taking a year off, we will have much ground to cover in 2021,” said Harkins. “Agent Summit has solidified its place in the industry as an event to be reckoned with, and from what I’ve seen so far, we are returning better than ever and ready to serve our agent partners!”

As in previous years, Agent Summit will include featured sessions and executive panels – touching on all aspects of agency operations, including F&I training and development, dealer recruiting, agency building, reinsurance, and more – as well as networking opportunities, receptions, the annual Reinsurance Symposium, and a special presentation from Automotive Compliance Education, all included as part of your full show pass.
