Leadership is only an aspiration: it is something you have to earn every day, because on a daily basis, people chose whether or not they’re going to follow you. A graduate of NAIFA’s Leadership In Life Institute, current MDRT mentor, Brian’s experience in leadership development has helped a variety of professionals realize the importance of emotional intelligence, building effective relationships, standing out and being the authority in their market. Leadership is not something innate, but rather something we develop overtime. Truly great leaders never arrived there by accident. A leader himself, Brian is an active Board member of both NAIFA Greater Washington and NAIFA National, serves on the NAIFA National YAT committee, Independent Advisor Committee, and on NAIFA’s Diversity and Inclusion Council and is the past NAIFA LACP Chairman, playing a vital role in launching and promoting this important designation. He is also active in the Association community as a member of American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), Chair of the ASAE Foundation Development committee, and the ASAE Consultants committee. Brian encourages his audiences to develop the leader within.
Diversity, Inclusion, & Equity
Recognized by the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA), as their 2018 Diversity Champion, as a Think Advisor Luminary Awardee for Diversity in 2021 and a Washington Business Journal Business of Pride Awardee in 2022, Brian has been a passionate advocate, ally, and catalyst for change. He has written multiple articles on developing diverse business practices and made exceptional efforts promoting the full and equal participation of diverse people in all enterprises. Brian knows it all begins with helping people see things for what they are: Opportunity is not something each person can reach up and grasp. For many members of underrepresented groups, accessing opportunity requires a stepladder and a supporting cast of people holding it firmly in place. Brian works to move individuals & organizations away from excitement, interest, and social pressure toward action and systemic engagement.
Branding, Marketing & Technology
A self-avowed “tech junkie,” Brian launched the “Haney Company Financial Guy” podcast in June of 2019 and published his 1st book, “The Retirement Income Pyramid” during the pandemic in 2020, two prime examples of his online content, marketing and PR prowess. He is a routine author for publications, such as Associations NOW, Insurancenewsnet, Advisor Today, and a frequent guest on several podcasts. Brian knows that the superstars of tomorrow will be built around a digital brand with highly systematic processes that do everything from generating leads, maximizing the customer experience, to creating brand ambassadors that are significant sources of referrals. These kinds of practices are also significantly more sellable. Recognizing the need to rise above digital disruption and stand out from the crowd, Brian helps producers develop a strategic digital brand and marketing framework to catapult their practices forward.
