Webinar: How Liability Can Arise in Tort
The presentation will be very appropriate for almost everyone working within the broking, underwriting and claims functions, as almost all policies have an element of liability protection and this presentation explores how a client can be held liable in the law of tort. This presentation will give brokers more confidence when discussing their liability needs. There will be a brief overview of the different types of the main torts including negligence, nuisance, strict liability and statutory liability and how each of the main covers of EL,PL, and Products looks to cover these liabilities. The increasing costs of damages is also explored and why many brokers could face hefty professional indemnity claims for failing to advise their clients on increasing their liability limits. This presentation will be delivered by Alan Chandler who is widely regarded as one of the leading insurance trainers and presenters within the UK.

Webinar: The Uber Test Case and the Ride Ahead for the Insurance Industry
On 19 February 2021, the Supreme Court delivered its judgment in the Uber test case. The decision will have major ramifications for the so-called “gig economy”, and in turn, future underwriting considerations. The Supreme Court judgment provides guidance on when the law now considers someone to be a “worker” and when someone is deemed to be “working”. Furthermore, when combined with an analysis of the Supreme Court judgments in April 2020 relating to an employer´s vicarious liability for their employees, the ramifications are potentially massive. The potential reach of the principles involved in the case are vast and will almost certainly impact the way many of us work now and in the future. This webinar will analyse the Uber test case and its implications for future underwriting considerations.

Webinar: How to run SHORT virtual/hybrid meetings
There are constant reports of back to back virtual meetings, and employees at all levels having to work longer hours. With organisations returning to the office partially, this will continue.

By understanding the psychological factors at play, we will be able to mitigate the risk and add another weapon to our armoury in the fight against insurance fraud.
