This magnificent trophy will be presented to the winner of each individual category of the 2002 Health Insurance awards at a gala dinner on 22 October. It could be standing on your desk on 23 October! Past winners have said that winning one of these prestigious awards has brought recognition within the health insurance industry of their professionalism and skill and helped to increase business opportunities. But don’t just take our word for it, take a look at the comments from some of last year’s winners.
“The Health Insurance Awards represent one of the few remaining accolades for an individual to prove themselves by merit rather than volume of business produced.
“I’m proud to have won and I would encourage all intermediaries involved in healthcare to enter. It is worth aspiring to.”
Brian Lentz, principal at Portfolio Insurance Consultancy and Mortgage Brokers, winner of the 2001 Best Individual Income Protection Intermediary award.
“It has made a real difference and given us recognition, especially with those insurers we had not previously dealt with. Winning this award is something with which we can promote ourselves locally and has generated publicity.”
Michael Payne, proprietor of Health Plan and winner of the 2001 Best Individual PMI Intermediary award.
“It’s nice to know that my peers in the industry believe that I am doing an excellent job. Independent financial advisers are feeding me more business because I specialise in PMI.
“When you work in a vacuum, which is how all small brokerages work, it’s hard to know how well you shape up with the competition. When you win, you realise that your best is truly the best!”
Valerie Levene, proprietor of Valerie Levene and winner of the 2001 Best Small Group PMI Intermediary award.
“It has given me confidence and reignited my passion for long term care. It has certainly helped, especially when speaking to solicitors who seem to think I’m not authoritative. I’m a young northern girl – ‘what on earth could she know anyway?”
Caroline McQuade of Inter-Alliance, winner of the 2001 Best Long-Term Care Intermediary award.
“It has given us good publicity. We have the logo on all our letterheads and tell prospective clients. It is good to be recognised by our peers and gives us credibility as an organisation.”
Peter Rafferty, managing director of Alexander Forbes and winner of the 2001 Best Group International PMI Intermediary award.
“Winning has given us extra credibility when it comes to targeting new clients. It is good to get independent accreditation.”
Stuart Gray, director at Taylor’s Risk and Healthcare and winner of the 2001 Best Group Income Protection Intermediary award.
