Weekdays with Bernie FAQs
Frequently asked questions
What is Weekdays with Bernie?
BerniePortal’s Annual Conference, Weekdays with Bernie brings together hundreds of benefits and HR leaders for best-in-class learning opportunities, networking, and strategies to grow their business and company—all held in the heart of Nashville, TN.
Who should attend?
Weekdays with Bernie features something for everyone, with session topics ranging from sales growth to workplace diversity. The conference is especially useful to agency owners, producers, service team members, and leaders.
Isn’t it risky to be holding a conference given the current economic state?
We understand there’s a lot of uncertainty around COVID-19 and in-person events. That’s why BerniePortal is taking strict precautions and monitoring guidelines and health and safety rules. We will continuously provide updates on the status of our in-person event as we get closer to May 19-21.
Do we have to attend in person?
No! Both attendees and presenters didn’t miss a beat during our 2020 virtual-only conference. And, thanks to a more experienced team and finetuned features, we expect the online option for the 2021 conference to be even better this year.
What to expect:
We’ll kick off with a welcome reception before heading into a two-day conference where attendees will hear from world-class speakers.
Expect to learn new strategies for building your business, develop best practices, mark a new era for your business, and network with peer professionals from around the country.
Are tickets priced the same for in-person and virtual attendees?
Virtual tickets will only include general sessions, so they will have a lower price than in-person tickets.
Will there be BerniePortal Training?
Yes. Due to popular demand, we have added a pre-conference Broker partner training session. Perfect for new BerniePortal partners or those who weren’t able to make it to training the first time around, the training portion of Weekdays with Bernie will start one day earlier than the conference.
What is the investment to attend Weekdays with Bernie?
Virtual registration starts at $99 while In-Person Early Bird registration starts at just $499 and pricing increases as the event nears. For sponsor pricing, please contact Tasneem Islam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
