I thought my knowledge of Workers’ Compensation was pretty good, until David’s seminar! I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know. When it comes to Workers’ Comp, ignorance isn’t bliss...it’s costly.

  • • Why 50% of All Businesses Fail to Survive a Disaster… Despite Being Insured

    Studies show that approximately 50-70% of all businesses either do not reopen or close within three years following a catastrophe, despite the fact that they were insured. How did this happen… and what could they have done differently? This workshop will highlight the biggest areas that lead to these failures and how to prevent them happening.

  • • Improve Your Risk Profile & Improve Your Bottom Line

    Rapid changes in the insurance world have led to a broken insurance procurement system. The reason being that insurance agents have truly failed to keep up with the changing times, leading to a frustration of the entire system by most business owners and leaders. The insurance quotes businesses receive are no longer based just on location, sales, payroll and property values. They are  now being based on a combination of analytics and underwriter perceptions of the risk in a business – Your Risk Profile.  TThe insurance companies are building scoring systems to determine how you run your business is and manage your employees.  This workshop will shed light on how insurance companies score businesses, what you can do to improve your score, and how to reduce your premiums. And how improving your score will improve the productivity and profitability of your company.

  • • Don't Let a Good Hire Go Bad

    Many employers often hire a potentially good employee only to later run into employment issues, such as poor performance, and/or costly workers’ compensation claims.  These situations cost employers considerable amounts of time and money. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With this workshop you will discover how addressing the root causes of these breakdowns can improve your success of hiring the right employee, by bridging the gap between the hiring and handing them off to operations.

  • • Eliminating Errors and Overcharges in Your Workers’ Compensation Program.

    Workers’ compensation, with it’s experience modifier and how injuries are managed, is confusing, But more and importantly, it is often wrong or at the very least mismanaged.

Coverage varies state by state, and often stops at state borders.  When you have multi-state operations (not just multi-state locations), whenever an employee crossing a state line impacts how workers’ compensation applies to your business.
