We look back on 2022

From Awards to Conferences, Rebrands to Recruitments 

Meeting you again

We were delighted to get back to face to face events this year, exhibiting at over 20 conferences around the UK, across a wide range of specialisms some of which included Automotive Live, The Dairy Show, Hospice UK, Family Attraction Expo and Holiday Park and Innovation Show, Charity Finance Annual Conference, Healthcare UK and many regional business shows.  Attending these events provides us with the opportunity to engage with you directly and have open conversations about the insurance needs of your specialist sector.

PIB Client Academy

Our PIB Client Academy launched in June this year, the academy was created in response to the increasing need for those responsible for managing risk or purchasing insurance to understand the current and emerging risks facing their organisation.  Since its launch we have held 8 academies, across 5 regions, covering topics such as Cybercrime, Business Interruption and Business Continuity Planning, Employee Tribunal and Fleet Risk Management with over 250 registrations.  We are currently in the process of confirming our academy calendar for 2023 and will be adding Claims Defensibility and Commercial Contracts to our programme.  Our client academies are open to all business leaders and free to attend, to learn more click here.

Providing in-depth understanding of the needs faced by sectors, demonstrates PIB’s focus on excellent client care.

This is testament to the commitment and hard work of every single colleague across the business.
