Impossible Thinking Seminar-24.1.19

  • Thu 24 Jan 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm
  • Novotel Reading Conference Centre
    • Ian Rowland , The Home of Magic Ltd

This Seminar is about new ways of thinking that transform how you see problems and opportunities in business. It’s about getting from ‘this can’t be done’ to ‘we’ve done it’, and every point is backed up by detailed business case studies. This is not a ‘watch, yawn and switch off’ seminar. They emphasise active, participative learning throughout, based on the carefully staged transfer of key concepts and principles using effective (and sometimes surprising!) training methods. It is also fun, imaginative, engaging and memorable.

Business Interruption Half Day Training Workshop 17th July 2018

  • Tue 17 Jul 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm
  • The Forbury Roseate Hotel

The Insurance Institute of Reading invites you to attend a free half-day introductory workshop on Business Interruption Insurances. Business Interruption is the most important cover we sell. If it works, it rescues the client’s entire business. If it goes wrong, the client’s business will die, and we’ll probably be blamed and sued. It’s as simple as that. That said, some Insurers, Brokers and loss adjusters find the concept of business interruption difficult to grasp and even harder to explain to others. The aim of this short course is therefore to provide an Introductory explanation of everyday BI, using real examples of the key elements of the BI policy and how BI covers work in practice.
