Webinar - Motor Legal Expenses Insurance (MLE)
Motor Legal Expenses (MLE) is a class of insurance frequently misunderstood, overlooked or dismissed altogether. For many claimants however, MLE can be a vital form of cover, and one which is changing significantly with the upcoming implementation of the Civil Liability Act. This important legal instrument is set to make sweeping changes to the way both personal injury and ULR claims are handled and calls for major changes in the way MLE is worded, priced and sold. The wide variety of policies, cover, and marketing options can be confusing for clients and sometimes for insurance professionals. This webinar seeks to demystify MLE and to clarify what needs to be taken into account when considering and recommending cover to clients. The webinar will be of value to those involved in Motor claims, underwriting, broking or anyone wishing to widen their knowledge of a highly topical and fast-moving aspect of general insurance.

Webinar - 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. All insurance staff need to understand the law relating to exclusions. This webinar will take delegates on a plain English walk on how the law applies to policy exclusions and proximate cause, so that they can explain to clients clearly and confidently the implications of the differing communicable disease exclusions that will be applied to your policyholders wordings.

Webinar - Seafarer Crisis - what has happened and where do we go from here
The crisis affecting seafarers will lead to shipowners and their insurers in all likelihood facing claims from ship’s crew members. This 1.5 hour webinar will raise awareness around the issues affecting the crews of all vessels worldwide since the pandemic started and that charters may start to be rejected due to a ship’s crew having been on board for excessive periods, raising safety concerns. Vessels will then be laid up around the world with potentially no crew being available, as there is almost certainly going to be a decline in the profession.

Webinar - How to maximise opportunities in a Hard Market
There have been hard markets before, there have been recessions before, but never have the two emerged with such force at the same time. Policyholders desperate for savings will be receiving the unwelcome news of significant premium increases. The door of client inertia will be swung wide open, presenting fantastic new business opportunities, as well as offering serious threats to renewal books. This webinar, delivered by Alan Chandler, one of the most popular insurance presenters in the UK, is a follow on from his incredibly well received presentation on why there will be a hard market called the Perfect Storm. Alan will explain what constitutes a hard market and ten things both brokers and underwriters need to do to maximise opportunities in these unique trading conditions. Many of the best brokers in the UK attribute their success to the last hard market of 2001. It became a turning point from which they never looked back. There will be big winners and losers again in 2020 just like there was 19 years ago.
