  • The Language of Insurance -New-

Do you remember when you joined the insurance industry and had to learn its complex terminology, including abbreviations and acronyms, to communicate quickly and effectively with your colleagues? There are hundreds of special terms used by brokers, underwriters and claim adjusters. Some of them are rarely used. And many of us forget when we speak with someone outside the industry, including clients, is that they don’t always understand what we’re saying. This lack of clarity and connection can lead to loss of client relationships. In this fascinating and revealing seminar, you’ll examine P&C insurance language, explore some commonly used terms to get to their true meaning, uncover some useful terms you may have never heard before, and learn clear communication techniques to assist you in managing your communications and relationships with clients and other non-industry contacts.
