Training Team

We are fortunate to have long-term relationships with many of the top producers in the nation. Select members of this group have qualified to be IFPA Field Trainers and Team Leaders. These individuals allow other sales counselors to travel with them in the field to experience real-life sales situations.

The results from this program have been outstanding. IFPA is a firm believer in sharing what works. The best way to show someone how to be successful is to demonstrate it first hand, and that is exactly what IFPA Team Leaders do to help others become more successful.

Dianna Budd is the IFPA Director of Training.  She is one of the top trainers in our profession and has built a team of experienced, caring, and successful trainers who remain, top producers, themselves.  Dianna has over 30 years of experience with personal sales exceeding $31,000,000.  With the help of Dianna, her team, our Team Leaders, and Regional Partners we guarantee you a game plan and ongoing support that is unmatched in our profession!
