What kind of materials should our commercial insurance brokers be using?

We have a team of commercial sales brokers that are trying to hit increasingly higher sales targets. If you were running a business, or operating the purchasing, what kind of materials would be influential to you? Brochures? Realtor style folders? Referral programs? SWAG? I'm hoping to give our brokers the best opportunities for success. Let me know what you think would be most impactful.

Do I need a license to work in the Insurance field?

I am currently in my second-year of post-secondary in the insurance field. However, I am not too sure if I need some sort of license after I graduate or if a bachelor's degree is good enough. In addition, if I do need a license, can I just do the license while I am still in school? Or do I have to wait until I graduate? If I do need a license, which ones do I need since I know there are many types? Thanks! #insurance #underwriting #broker #claims #riskmanagement #canada #july20

What can I expect in the Insurance field? (underwriting, claims, etc)

I am currently in an insurance program in my post-secondary school however, I am not that exposed to it. The main courses for the program don't begin until my third year and I do not know what I am really getting myself in to. I was wondering if any of you could explain the different roles in the insurance field and what it looks like on a day-to-day basis for each role. Thanks! #insurance #underwriting #broker #claims #JULY20

Is a math degree good for a career?

I am currently pursuing a degree in math. I know that there are a lot of careers that use math these days like insurance, finance, statistics, and cryptography. Is this the best degree to ensure that I get a job in one of these fields? And, if not what else should I look at? Thank you. #math #career-options #finance #statistics #insurance #college-major

What are the main qualities that describe the role of a Risk Analyst and how relevant are they in the corporate world?

Hello, I want to become a Risk Analyst in the near future #riskanalysis. I am currently majoring in finance and accounting and I have been taking management courses as well as information and technology courses based on various programs used in Data Analytics; however, though I have the general and principal idea of what and who a Risk Analysis is as well as his/her duties, I fail to pinpoint their relevance in the corporate world when there are already financial analyst, data analyst, corporate intelligence agents etc... I would like to know in the Insurance line of service #insurance how Risk Analytics plays a supporting role.
