Online, Gold Coast Think Tank: Exposing the Myths of Business Insurance

November 23, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 2:15 pm
Online, Gold Coast Think Tank: Exposing the Myths of Business Insurance @ ONLINE

Join Business Women Australia National Director Lyn Hawkins, together with Lizzie Nelson, Director at Evolution Insurance Services to debunk insurance myths and explore best practices in business risk management. 

Insurance brokers provide unquestionable value to businesses, leveraging risk management and industry expertise to deliver security and valuable advice for business owners. Rising expectations of value provide ongoing challenges and opportunities for insurance brokers to refine and evolve underlying value propositions and maintain relevance. Lizzie Nelson will share her insights and experiences gained over 17 years working in insurance, and share her vision for establishing her own firm.

Insurance has not been immune to the wave of disruption with advances in technology, changing client expectations and questionable practices in many areas of the financial sector.  It has been a sector that has found it hard to attract women to advisory roles while evidence points to the great value women can bring to the insurance broking sector. 

 Join this dynamic duo – Lizzie and Lyn –  along with members and guests of Business Women Australia and be inspired by the stories that showcase best practices in business management, with tips on how to get the greatest benefits from investing in the right insurance for your business. Both these business leaders are renowned for looking ahead with optimism and will also share their own personal and professional strategies for adapting to the changing landscape we now operate in.

This event begins at:
QLD: 1:00pm
NSW/VIC: 2:00pm
SA: 1:30pm
NT: 12:30pm
WA: 11:00am
