Ansvar 2018 Education Forum shaping as “The Best Yet”

August 9, 2018

Testimonials from brokers and industry clients agree:

Ansvar’s 2018 Education Forum “Protecting Vulnerable People” is providing enormous insight for brokers and clients as insurance moves from simple “risk transfer” to “greater risk awareness”.

Cassandra Heilbronn, Senior Associate at MinterEllison, who attended the Melbourne forum said it was “one of the best insurance events I have attended from a content perspective.”

Feedback from Sydney was also very positive with one broker commenting “Fantastic forum ….it was great to learn more about how governance and risk management can be enhanced and see first-hand some of the valuable risk tools and services you can offer!”

With four highly successful forums in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide just completed, there is one to go – in Perth on Wednesday 15 August.

The FREE half-day forums are designed to help brokers and clients identify today’s set of risks and how to deal with them to strengthen governance. So register NOW!

Ansvar’s risk management expert Anthony Black pulls no punches when he describes the threats confronting the specialised sectors, many which provide essential services to vulnerable people in the new world of demographic changes, chronic diseases, increasing regulation, cyber environment and institutional governance failure.

“We can’t afford our clients to be operating in the space of just hitting the panic button,” he tells attendees. “We need to support them to go beyond that.”

Black asks brokers to consider the conversations they are having with their clients around risk – were they solely addressing issues that were present right now, or were they working to identify risks that are looming on the horizon?

He then goes on to reveal what’s on the horizon, the importance of good governance and effective risk management and how Ansvar is developing insurance solutions to deal with 21st century risk.

Another of Ansvar’s risk management experts, Adriaan den Dulk, entertains the attendees with a history lesson on the development of governance through four revolutions; Discovery of the America’s & East, French Revolution, Industrial & Energy and Information Technology.

Feedback was again very positive from some attendees saying the forum was “very interesting, love the history lesson” and “Excellent event – sufficient time, good networking and presenters were informative and entertaining”.
