Ottawa - Oct. 14, 2014: All businesses have their inherent risks but a potential environmental exposure is something that requires unique pollution insurance coverage. And even though there are perhaps dozens of types of business that could face environmental losses (excavators, HVAC companies, sewage pumpers, waste management facilities, fresh water delivery services, etc) most share the same questions when it comes to risk management and pollution insurance.

Ottawa - Oct. 9, 2013: Think back to the biggest sale your company made last year. What was its dollar value; $5,000...$50,000...$500,000? How much time did you and perhaps your team put into making that sale happen? Was it a few days or maybe weeks? Perhaps it took a couple of months and many meetings. When it comes to the biggest transaction of the year, you want to make sure that everyone understands what they are getting, when they are getting it, what to expect and what it will cost.

Ottawa - Aug. 8, 2013: If your business insurance policy was a restaurant menu, what we'll talk about today would likely be considered the "side dishes". Just like the vegetables or rice help to compliment the main attraction of either steak or fish, there’s whole host of smaller coverages which are often included in commercial insurance policies which accompany the property and liability, or the “meat" of your coverage. And even though a lot of those who work in the insurance industry consider them to be “frills”, these so-called frills can become awfully important if your business suffers a loss FULL STORY

Ottawa - Jun. 25, 2013: The very first time that I work with a potential client, I'll often ask them if they think they're getting good value for their business insurance dollar. Most of the time, the response is a chuckle followed by something along the line of "How in the world should I know if I’m paying too much for my insurance?" FULL STORY

Ottawa - May. 16, 2013: The phone rang in my office and it was a potential client who wanted a business insurance quote. He was on the board of a sports association and he had been tasked by his fellow board members to get the best insurance price possible. Someone even gave him a list of the coverage they would need and the limits of insurance for each coverage. He forwarded me the document. FULL STORY

Ottawa - Feb. 25, 2013: If you run your own business, you know that it’s unique. Not all restaurants, for example, serve the same food to the same people during the same hours in the same neighbourhood. Some offer take out while others don’t. Some only serve breakfast and lunch while others only serve dinner. And so it goes with whatever type of business you operate and that’s why it’s critically important that your insurance broker fully understands the full scope of your operation. FULL STORY

Ottawa - Jan. 14, 2013: Most of us like to help out whenever and wherever we can. Occasionally we’re asked to sit on a fundraising committee for a particular charitable cause or perhaps we’re tapped on the shoulder by a friend involved in a not-for-profit group. Maybe you sit on your condominium board or perhaps you help run the local festival. Often we say yes to these requests with our only concern being how are we going to fit yet another meeting into our busy calendar. FULL STORY
