” The opportunities being given to you today, therefore confers on you certain duties and responsibilities as new members. You are to look for ways to complement the great efforts of the already existing members and carve a niche for yourselves as suave practitioners. Your admission, instead of being seen as an end in itself, should rather be seen as the beginning of another chapter of knowledge acquisition and unselfish devotion to the profession of insurance broking,” she posited.
She said it is no longer news that the contemporary trends of brokers’ practice today has necessitated the need for all Insurance Broking practitioners to be creative and ethical in order to meet the growing needs of the clients, stressing that brokers cannot continue to do the same thing over and over again, expecting different results!
