Webinar Event - Understanding the implications of policy exclusions following Covid-19
We know pretty much the whole market will apply some sort of pandemic exclusion for pandemics/covid-19 or more worryingly the words communicable diseases will be used, this starts bringing all sorts of extra scenarios that will be excluded for clients. Importantly, this will be for liability as well as property and Bi and could leave a policyholder with a lawsuit that is not covered by their insurance policy.

Webinar Event - Credit Hire - The what? When? How and Who?
It has only been around for 30 years or so, but in that time has become one of the most sensitive and polarising subjects in the general insurance market. Depending on your perspective it can solve a perennial problem by keeping vital customers on the road or it can be an expensive and unnecessary luxury, which ultimately has to be paid for by the insuring public. This webinar looks at the development of credit hire, the legalities, and how the current market operates. It also includes some significant case studies and how the concept might develop in the future.

Trust, Transparency and Visibility: striking the right balance in the workplace
This thought-provoking webinar addresses the key question: is there a link between trust, transparency, visibility and performance? There is a perceived disconnect with some people now working back in the office, whilst others continue to work remotely. The relationship between trust, transparency and visibility is crucial to deliver the best possible levels of performance. An employer needs to adapt their employee engagement to each individual whilst at the same time taking into account operational risks and strategies. It requires a level of transparency between employee and employer and self-discipline irrespective of where the workplace is located.

Novus Webinar - The Thinking Paradox
We overthink or we don't think enough. When we try to focus, we can't. When we want to relax, our mind is too focused. When we need to make a quick decision, we can't and we hold back. When we need to take time to make a decision, we don't and we act impulsively. When are the best decisions made and how can we learn to think or "unthink" when we need to? How can we learn to trust our instincts more? This webinar will explore these fundamental questions, which have even more relevance in the difficult and uncertain times we currently find ourselves in.
