EVEREST RISK GROUP (CAR OF INSURANCE ADVISERNET AUSTRALIA)
Sean McDermott’s insurance career involves a far wider focus than simply his core responsibilities. McDermott works with the Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) to help its members heighten their knowledge around risk and safety. In both 2013 and 2015, he was invited to be a keynote speaker at their national conference. Colleagues tell Insurance Business that McDermott has been tasked with developing and writing industry materials in previous roles for different organisations, all with a view to assisting other aspiring industry professionals to improve their ability to perform their roles. He’s also helped other brokerages develop systems to empower their staff to be efficient and effective. McDermott is currently undertaking a Bachelor of Business and, in 2018, hopes to commence a Doctorate of Business. He’s passionate about the work he does and is especially proud of what he’s achieved to date.
