Mid-market is the most profitable and coveted segment, and therefore the most fiercely competed over. Medium-sized companies have the same problems as Fortune 500 companies, just on a smaller scale.
The problem lies in risk solutions; these solutions don't scale and small companies are unsure of where they can turn for help. As a result, medium-sized businesses do not benefit fully from risk management.
Insurance brokers deal with these companies every day, sharing advice on one important aspect of risk: their insurance.
Brokers specialize in helping these same companies use broader risk management resources, tools, and services. If the brokers do not provide risk management services, others will: accountants, lawyers, and OHS and WCC consultants. Insurance brokers should talk to their clients and prospects about risk management in a way they understand.

It's a normal human tendency to stay optimistic and believe that you are immune from disaster. We say, "that'll happen to other people, I'll hope for the best and focus on my day-to-day activities."
September 11, 2001 is this generation’s Kennedy assassination. It’s the day when everyone knows exactly where they were and what they were doing when they first found out about it. For risk managers in Canada, that day was spent in Ottawa at the RIMS Canada Conference.
