Tales of Right and Wrong

Holiday Inn Cambridge
Tuesday, 10 September 2019
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
    • Roger Flaxman, Flaxmans


This talk will discuss real case examples of things that go right and go wrong in delivering insurance products and services to the public, both for the consumer and for businesses. The talk will address both the FOS and the Courts’ benchmarks of expectation of insurance companies, agents and brokers and how lessons learned can go to the heart of re-gaining the public’s trust in the industry. The talk will highlight some of the things that cause the public’s trust to be lost and what we can do for ourselves and our firms to reduce the incidence of losing public trust and regaining it to the benefit of our own business and reputation. The talk will also offer anecdotes of the unexpected consequences of disputed insurance claims and how they can be avoided
