Webinar: Understanding the different types of Company structure
It is essential all insurance staff have a good understanding of the different types of way in which a company could be structured and failing to understand these structures could lead to wrong cover being put in place. This webinar, provided by Alan Chandler one of the most popular presenters in the UK, will examine the difference between a sole trader, a partnership, a limited liability partnership, a private limited company and a public limited company. Alan will also explore the ways in which charities are formed. The leading case of Macaura v Northern insurance shows us that a policy will not respond if the insurance cover does not reflect the true structure of the company.

Webinar: Trust, Transparency & 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 in the workplace? 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.
