About Our Speakers:
 
Erin Brown is on a mission to empower managers to become the leaders they aspire to be. Having spent twelve years in the commercial insurance industry during which time she led multiple client service teams; Erin has personally navigated the ups and downs of transitioning from individual contributor to manager to leader. In her prior team leadership role, Erin began coaching up and coming and first-time managers within her organization on topics such as communication, building engaged teams, conflict resolution, and the importance of people-focused leadership. Her personal leadership experience combined with her passion for personal growth and coaching new leaders inspired her to launch Lead Connext, a community-driven leadership development platform for emerging, first-time and mid-level leaders.
 
About Lead Connext:
 
The Lead Connext community brings together first-time and mid-level leaders with coaches, HR experts, and each other to capitalize on the support, collaboration, and best practices that only a community of growth-minded leaders can provide.
 
Together we:
 
  • Elevate our leadership skills
  • Confidently navigate challenges
  • Avoid common leadership missteps
  • Empower both ourselves and our teams
 
In addition to a growing community, Lead Connext offers virtual peer groups, live courses, 1-on-1 coaching, and on-demand leadership resources.
 
Three years ago, while celebrating her 21st year in the insurance industry, Meg McKeen did the unthinkable and quit her job without a job. Gasp! Who does that? It was a pivotal decision that led to the launch of her consulting firm, Adjunct Advisors LLC, in 2018, through which she offers thoughtfully curated solutions for the development of insurance sales professionals. A believer in the story within every story, Meg also shares more about her personal journey in the thought-provoking workshops she facilitates for women and entrepreneurs. A graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University and resident of Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood, when she’s not helping business professionals navigate the insurance world, you can find Meg putting the “practice” into yoga practice, searching for the best vegan burger, or enjoying live music and the wonder that is Chicago’s lakefront.
