My clients are my most important priority. I listen to them and try to fulfil or exceed their needs and expectations. I think that best describes what I do better than any job title. I have been in the industry over thirty seven years which originally started in Africa with AA Mutual in 1981 followed by two small brokers in North London then to Frizzells in Bournemouth in 1987, I then went on to manage a branch of Bennetts Commercial in Poole in 1991 and then to UAP provincial before establishing my own brokerage in 1999 ( Hosking and Lake Commercial Insurance Services ) in Bournemouth for eleven years.
Most importantly I try to offer a professional but personal service to clients. I provide a full free review service with the aim of making people aware of the covers they need and that it is in touch with their needs whilst trying to show better value. Although the industry is changing and has been through many changes both good and bad, it doesn't change the importance of offering personal service where it requires this.
I believe being a good listener is nearly always the answer to most clients needs which will invariably highlight what the issue is. Lack of time, listening and not asking the right questions are why most claims are declined or not met properly.
