Cii examination techniques
This three-hour workshop (which will include a break) will aid all those who are taking CII or PFS examinations. It is a generic overview delivered by Alan Chandler, who is one of the most popular insurance presenters in the UK, and who has been both tutor and examiner for many different CII subjects. This interactive course will deal with how to impress the examiner, looking at the different examination terminology and what the examiner expects when they use key phrases. The workshop will explore a range of study techniques to see which ones are most appropriate for you, as well as looking at how to time manage both in respect of revision and the actual exam.

Womens Mental Health
This powerful session looks at mental health through a female lens - focussing on prevention, early intervention and health promotion. Social and economic factors can put women at greater risk of poor mental health than men. Around one in five women have a common mental health disorder, such as depression and anxiety. While there can be many reasons why these develop, some specific risk factors affect many women, including life events including pregnancy and menopause. When women find it hard to talk about difficult feelings, they tend to internalise them. This can lead to certain common mental health disorders. In this session, we will explore some of the specific risk factors and protective factors that can influence women’s mental health. Attendees will leave with some practical tools that will help support them to improve their mental health and wellbeing. This session is aimed at women - and at anyone who has women and girls that they care about, and live or work with.

Understanding clients’ accounts has never been more important for brokers and underwriters alike, with tremendous scrutiny now being put on clients' accounts, so account executives, account handlers and underwriters will need to understand the main terminology. The way accountants record financial information is often different from what insurers need and understanding the difference can help you ensure your clients get their sums insured right.

Commercial Property Insurance – What is actually covered by an All Risks wording?
This presentation explores what is covered by an 'All risks' Commercial Property wording which is not as wide as the title suggests! Alan Chandler, one of the most popular presenters in the UK explores how each peril covered could actually cause a loss and what is excluded under each peril. Brokers use the term ‘All Risks’ every single day but rarely stop to think about the full coverage they are offering. This webinar will enable staff to get under the bonnet of an All Risks wording and have more confidence in advising on this cover going forward.

The rate of male suicide is alarmingly high: 3 out of 4 suicides in the UK are by men. This session considers how we can work towards a world where men take action to be mentally well, and are supported by those around them; and where men and boys are comfortable having conversations about the big things in life.

How EL/PL and Products claims can arise
All broking staff should have a clear understanding of how liability can arise if they are to correctly advise their clients. Liability can arise in three main ways, tort, statute and contract. Policyholders need to understand their Employers liability, Public liability and Products Liability exposure to tort, statute and contract, so that they can make sure that the cover they are purchasing properly meets their needs. To ensure this happens broking staff must acquire a full understanding of how liability can arise in the three areas of tort, statute and contract and this presentation, delivered by Alan Chandler one of the most popular presenters in the UK, will enable broking staff to achieve this understanding.
