Rick recaps the highlights of 2020

Well, folks, that’s a wrap on 2020 and another year of podcasts from us here at VIP. We started the year talking about making plans for 2020 insurance industry events, and here we are 12 months later in a starkly different world from where we started. It’s been quite a year of ups and downs, pivots, and taking stock of what’s most important.
