The six sessions, which all BIBA members can attend free of charge, include a debate on motor claims chaired by Journalist Quentin Willson, the launch of a government initiative to help brokers get online, the use of social networking sites as an online marketing tool, a session on business recovery and resilience, a CII session on professionalism and a presentation on working under pressure from an ex-army bomb disposal expert.
BIBA chief executive, Eric Galbraith, said: “I am really pleased to announce such a strong line up of seminar sessions. The sessions are all focused to provide brokers with business knowledge and support that they can take back to their office. With free entry for BIBA brokers to the conference, I’m looking forward to welcoming many members to Excel in May.”
