Designed for all business owners, this seminar covers commercial insurance - from negotiations, coverages and loss prevention.  

We'll discuss ways to improve your company's risk profile - the way insurers look at your business.  That's a first big step to reducing your cost of business risk.  We'll also tackle some other basic business risk issues.

The “take aways” from this seminar include:

  • An overview of the commercial insurance industry and how to choose an insurance representative that is best for you and your business
  • How to make sure you have the right coverages for your business at competitive cost.
  • What you can do to improve your company’s risk profile and save money in the process all while avoiding uninsured costs following a loss you’ve probably never thought of.

This seminar will be presented by two experienced insurance representatives: Kris Greene,  a State Farm Insurance Agency owner and Bill Ruttledge, a retired “international broker” executive.  Collectively, they’ll be able to address the insurance needs of small business and share how large corporations deal with the business risks they face – ideas you can use in small business as well. 

Registration is $35; seating is limited to 20 pre-registered attendees by using the using the link below.  All seminar attendees may later receive free, confidential SCORE mentoring on this or any other business related subject.  A copy of all presentation slides and other course materials will be emailed to registrants a day prior to the seminar.
