LMI Group’s Managing Director, Dr Allan Manning spoke in his capacity as International President of the International Institute of Claims Preparers at the 29th NIBA Conference held at the Sydney Convention Centre today.

The theme of the conference is "Stretch Your Thinking". Allan spoke on four subjects: 1) Placing Slips; 2) Policy Comparisons; 3) Communication and 4) Fire Service Levies.

The talk sponsored by Allianz Insurance was introduced by Ms Sarah Johns, Segment and Marketing Coordinator, Broker and Agency Allianz.

During the talk Allan used case examples of errors in placing slips seen during the recent catastrophes throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Allan’s talk went through the history of fire service levies, the terrible impact the high taxes caused by triple tax has on under and non insurance and how the Liberal National Government in Victoria has betrayed the rural voters in that state by including hundred’s of millions of dollars of capital expenditure items into the upcoming year’s levy when the benefit will be to all Victorian’s over the next 20+ years.

As usual the talk was well received which explains why Allan is asked to speak at industry conferences, seminars and professional development days over 125 times each year.
