13/05/2021 and 27/05/2021 – Webinars: Demystifying the Jargon – Part 1 (Insurance) & Part 2 (Legal)

Every profession has its own jargon. Terminology used daily by those within a profession, but which is often foreign to outsiders.  In our May webinars, presenters from the informed risk management team and Planned Cover insurance brokers will demystify some of the jargon which is commonly used in the insurance and legal professions.

These webinars are aimed at those who are new to practice as well as practitioners looking to re-fresh their understanding of some common insurance and legal concepts. Book for one OR both webinars below:
