The Big Interview
David Porteous and his Brooklyn Underwriting team chalked up some impressive achievements in 2015. In August, the agency was named ‘Underwriting Agency of the Year’ for the fourth consecutive year at the Australian Insurance Industry Awards – no minor victory in anyone’s books! Beyond its successes on the underwriting front, the agency launched Brooklyn University, an online learning community for insurance professionals that facilitates participation in a range of subjects, which earn participants CPD points upon completion. The focus of its education is interactive, sharp, to-the-point material that’s accessible to everyone, regardless of geography. The response to Brooklyn University has been so strong it’s even surprised Porteous and his team. He told Insurance Business last year his team is committed to being a part of the broker education piece as long as the agency is around. With new and more complex content in the works, what educational offerings will Porteous and Brooklyn take to market in 2016 to assist brokers in their ongoing learning?
