I called an insurance associate regarding my complaint about a life policy which I thought was cancelled. He had my conversation on speaker phone while he was in talking with another gentelman. That person heard everything I was saying. I happened to know the person he was talking with and he was the one that alerted me that this had happened.

While it is unprofessional to have another person in the room while talking on speaker phone to a customer/client, the law does not give you a protectible privacy interest in a conversation like this: there is no legal action you can take, since the law does not say that another person may not be in the room or hear the call.
