The latest industry changes to remuneration have caused a lot of anxiety amongst Risk Insurance Advisers and from past experience we can expect further changes in the future. Dealing with change is always difficult but those advisers who handle such situations most successfully are those who have invested solidly in the “basics” of selling and practice management.

At our next Queensland MDRT event, two veterans of the Australian Risk Insurance market, Godfrey Phillips and Russell Collins will share their combined 80 years’ MDRT membership experience of how the basics allowed them to successfully navigate and ADAPT to every regulatory change introduced into the industry during their respective careers. If you want to grow in confidence about your ability to profitably cope with today’s and tomorrow’s industry changes, you can’t afford to miss this valuable exercise in the basics. What worked yesterday is still relevant today!

After Godfrey and Russell’s presentation which will be facilitated by MDRT QLD chair, Dominique Schuh there will be time allocated for questions from the audience to ensure that you are able to gain as much knowledge and information from these two MDRT legends.

In 2015, MDRT’s highest award for outstanding service to the MDRT in Australia was named after Russell Collins and Godfrey Phillips and named the “Collins/Phillips” MDRT Award.
