First, please provide your feedback on the virtual Life University Experience.
If you watched a specific day, we would appreciate your feedback on those days speakers as well.

What's that mean? It means that for three days – September 11 - 13, 2018 – Nationwide Financial Network (NFN) financial service agents from around the country will be meeting together to learn from the best minds and most successful agents in our profession, but they'll be doing so from the comfort and privacy of their home or office computer screens.

Why virtual?

Because we listened to you. You wanted an event that would make optimal use of your time and minimize, and if possible eliminate, travel airports, and hotels. You wanted an event that would make better use of recent technological innovations. And you wanted an event that would be open to everyone, that would recognize outstanding performers but still offer learning opportunities to your colleagues regardless of their performance numbers.

We're providing exactly that. The 2018 Life University will offer the same opportunities to learn from the best and most successful experts inside and outside Nationwide, but the sessions will be streamlined to better fit your busy schedules. Each of the three days of Life University will feature a keynote speaker offering focused commentary on pertinent and engaging topics. Following that, Nationwide experts will lead a breakout session based on survey results - topics selected by you. That way we can accommodate our agents and agencies throughout the country during a three-hour window. We'll pack in the learning opportunities and still leave you with plenty of time to focus on your business.

What about qualifications and recognition?
Qualifications will still apply, just as they have in the past. Although the 2018 Life University will be open to all NFN agents and agencies, those who qualify will be recognized and honored during the three days of the event.

The Dean's List ceremony will occur just as it has in previous years, and our top 20 agents and agencies will be especially recognized and honored. We'll still provide letter jackets to all Dean's List honorees. And those agents and agencies who meet the qualification criteria will be honored as well. We'll offer a new recognition component and rewards this year for those who meet our highest standards, which are outlined in the Awards Recognition Criteria tab of this website.
