Insurance emerges as the beautiful swan it was meant to be

We all know that we have amazing careers and we love what we do. But a lot of other people don’t know that much about what we do or why we do it. This is a great article on how insurance is changing its image and getting better-looking. A lot of us on the E&S side like to say that we’re “exciting and sexy!” Let’s keep it fun and fresh by spreading the word about what a great industry insurance is! From the Insurance Business Magazine, From ugly ducking to beautiful swan: insurance paints a better image

TIC Halloween Costume Winners!

Thanks to everyone who participated! The big winner this year was HUB Anchorage. They had a Hocus Pocus picture and it was fun! A shout out to Barrett and Associates, Silva Insurance and CHI. We hope more people will share their pictures with us next year. They will get the TIC Halloween Trophy and lunch on us.

Cyber attacks hits the Construction industry the hardest

I spend a lot of time reading about Cyber and was actually really surprised that the construction industry is the most impacted. Why? Because they think they have the least to lose because they don’t have as “much data” that can be easily compromised. The truth of it is, if you have an email address you could be compromised and hacked.

Moment of Gratitude

November is typically the month where we count our blessings and remember what we are most grateful for in our lives. To that end, we will put inspirational pictures during November to inspire those sentiments. May you continue to be blessed throughout this year.
