PROFESSOR ALLAN MANNING
Allan Manning is a leader to whom the industry should always be keen to listen. He’s the founder of the LMI Group, which provides loss management, risk assessment and technical advice to the business and insurance communities. He’s chalked up over four decades’ experience in insurance, including lecturing at three Victorian universities on insurance and delivering over 1,200 seminars. Manning has authored over a dozen books on insurance topics and continues to update his blog (www.AllanManning.com). Those who attended last year’s Steadfast Convention will likely agree that a standout highlight of the event was his presentation, ‘Is advice or price the best value proposition for tomorrow’s broker?’ – a call to brokers to change their conversations with clients, in order to reinforce their indispensability. More recently, on 18 January, it was announced his LMI Group would partner with The Financial Services School (led by Val Phinn) with the aim of providing high quality technical insurance education. Manning continues to be a great advocate of the industry and the important work it achieves. His wealth of knowledge, experience and thought leadership makes his a voice that should always be heard.
