2020 Insurance Trends: Webinars on What You Need to Know
What insurance technology topics can I expect in 2020?
It is an exciting time to be in the insurance industry! Want to know more about insuring a cannabis grower or how underwriting and claims use drones for handling claims? What kind of risks are there when operating an e-scooter or when renting rooms on AirBnB? Some issues are policy driven, others apply to insurance professionals at the consumer level. No insurance topic is too big or too small— in 2019 we discussed the insurance issues surrounding:
Uber, Lyft, and TNC’s
e-Scooters (Lime, Bird, etc.)
Internet of Things
Autonomous (self-driving) vehicles
Rental car insurance
Vacation rental insurance
Financial exploitation of seniors and vulnerable investors
Business Interruption Coverage - state's proposing legislation to mandate payment on policies with viral or pandemic exclusions
Event Cancellation Insurance
Workers' Compensation claims
Employer Liability: risks when economy re-opens
Adjusters/CAT claims issues - complying with social distancing in field work
Reopening businesses - learning to manage new risks
COVID-19 scams, fraud, and phishing email warnings
Our 2020 focus will begin with key legislation impacting our industry, as well as trending technologies that continue to transform the consumer experience. As new and improved telematics are deployed into our everyday lives through product innovation and user experience, so too will the risk exposures and insurance needs continue evolving. You can count on the A.D. Banker Insurance Trends Lunch-n-Learn to be on top of these cutting-edge topics each month.

What is a Lunch-n-Learn?
Have you ever attended an insurance webinar that you thought would be really interesting, but it turned out to be the equivalent of watching AND listening to paint dry? We all have.
Linda McHenry and I both agreed we could do better, and started tossing around ideas for a FUN webinar we could co-host each month—and the A.D. Banker Lunch-n-Learn series was born!
Linda brings decades of experience as a licensed producer, registered rep, professional writer, speaker, and course developer to each topic. My background spans nearly 25 years in insurance education, compliance, and training. We ask the questions YOU want answered, and sometimes ask questions you’ve never even considered. Each webinar is free to attend with the goal of presenting insurance related topics that you as a listener will find interesting, relevant, maybe controversial, but always entertaining and informative.
Can I get professional development credit?
Each Lunch-n-Learn runs about 45 to 60 minutes and qualifies for professional development certification upon request, as well as counting towards your Associate or Fellow designation CE requirement if you are a member of the Securities and Insurance Licensing Association (SILA).
