Relationship-based Risk Management

You’ve heard it said that business is done based on relationships. While I wholeheartedly agree, there are many situations where relationships are not considered like they should be. One of those is on the management of your risk. Insurance isn’t the first thing that pops to mind when thinking about building relationships, however it should be included in the conversation. Recently, I did a consulting job for a client where the relationship between the insurance buyer and the agent had become non-existent. The result? Overpaying for premium and gaps in insurance coverage. We were able to develop a relationship after Dave heard me speak to his association. That turned into an agreement for us, in which he received tremendous value. Here’s what he had to say…

“Inviting Toro Consulting to review our insurance information is one of the most valuable business contacts we have made.  Dan Weedin’s professionalism, experience, and knowledge have given us the tools to make informed decisions regarding our business.  Along with these valuable tools, is the peace of mind and security that comes with it.”

– Dave Godbolt, President of Sentinel Construction & Consulting, Inc. (Kingston, WA)

Thanks Dave and Barbara!

Most insurance buyers don’t even know they have problems with their insurance. Building a relationship with your insurance agent and insurance company is paramount to maximizing your protection and reducing your premiums. I can help you do that. Don’t just take my word for it, take Dave’s (above) and others. Click on the link to visit my testimonial page or to watch rave reviews on video.

You will be reading and hearing more from me on the concept of relationship-based business – dealing with leadership, communications, revenue generation, risk management, and life balance. It’s part of the “re-invention” I recently spoke about. Today’s topic deals with risk management and the importance of gaining alliances and trusted advisors. That all comes as a result of building strong relationships.
