Must-attend live webinars

Business Interruption: Beyond the Basics (Webinar) – February 13
Business interruption insurance is often perceived as a highly technical field, both difficult to sell and service. As a result, it is a commodity that, although important to all risk portfolios, is undersold. This seminar aims to put aside the accounting and the numbers so that insurance people in all disciplines can get a better handle on business interruption insurance. Register Now

Policy Wordings (Webinar) – March 4
Join us as we learn how to properly navigate policy wordings to find what is covered, excluded, conditions of the policy, and endorsements. We will then uncover how to use these tools to point out key areas insured's should reference and how you can use the wording to upsell and cross sell coverage. Register Now

Cyber Liability Exposure & Coverage (Webinar) – March 5
Canadians are embracing the use of cyberspace in every aspect of their lives, but are we adequately prepared to deal with the increasing risk of cyber-attacks? With both the frequency and severity of cyber attacks increasing, the insurance industry needs to be poised to understand, recognize and advise clients on the risks, potential impacts and available coverages.
