Request for Proposals

Do you have a particular interest, something you are passionate about, relating to the claims industry, that you would love to share with others? PLRB has a platform for you to share those ideas with our industry. The third annual PLRB Presents! Industry Insights will be held at the 2018 Claims Conference in Orlando, and will offer select individuals a setting to promote and record their presentations and share them with a wider industry audience. Here's your opportunity to offer a high-energy, technical, and insightful presentation about some aspect of the P&C insurance industry or your job.

We invite you to talk about what is going well, or what needs improvements in the way claims are handled and resolved. Share your experience, your insights, possible solutions, etc. with our industry. Tell us about what is happening now and what you project will/should happen in the future. Industry Insights are high-impact, bite-sized presentations with lots of energy and gusto, similar to "TED-Talks." Presentations are limited to 16-18 minutes, and props are encouraged. They will be delivered live in front of a small studio audience in Orlando, and will be videotaped for future dissemination through the PLRB website following the event. Topics should be educational in nature (please avoid infomercials).

Presenters should deliver these short talks in an enthusiastic, insightful, and clear manner. These discourses will grab the attention of the audience, convey key information, and leave audiences wanting more. Presentations should address today's challenges, describe current obstacles, and offer solutions for industry leaders.

Interested parties should submit a topic title, a one paragraph description, a brief outline, and information about your proposed prop(s). Props can include things like a book, a machine or devise, an adjusters' tool kit, a picture of a loss or accident site, a chart to illustrate important concepts, etc.

One option in submitting your proposal is to send us a 1-3 minute video clip of your intended presentation. Quality of video will not be considered; instead, we want to see you and your enthusiasm for your topic. You can send us a YouTube link or video file. PowerPoint slides are unnecessary, as they cannot be displayed during the presentation.

A small number of Conference attendees in Orlando will be invited to attend your presentation, and the edited recording will be posted on the PLRB website after the Conference. PLRB members and affiliate members are encouraged to view a sampling of the earlier recordings available on the PLRB website .


  • Presentations should be delivered with minimal notes. They are generally scripted and rehearsed.
  • Your presentation is a personal reflection and should relate to our industry. PLRB Presents! demonstrates how passionately you feel about a particular topic, and your sense of purpose creates an energy boost for both you and your audience.
  • Your presentation should take us on a journey of exploration as you address your topic. The use of stories and examples is encouraged.

Proposals are due February 16, 2018 and will be reviewed by PLRB staff. Confirmations will be sent out in February/early March. All contributors must be registered for the Claims Conference; and are responsible to register themselves for the Claims Conference. Staff of insurance company members receive complimentary registration.


Presentations will be scheduled every 45 minutes to allow for set-up and take-down.

The room will be set with a stage, podium, and "casual" seating for attendees (a few comfy sofas and some tall tables if attendees wish to stand). The production crew will provide a wireless lavaliere microphone for your presentation. We expect a relatively small live audience.

A List of Potential Topics (Just to get you thinking….)

  1. How should we be training and developing our new or experienced adjusters?
  2. What's happened with fire investigation practices in the past decade?
  3. What are the best qualities to look for in a new Claim Supervisor?
  4. Claim Audits - what works, what doesn't?
  5. Cool apps for adjusters
  6. Working with Independent Adjusters (or Panel Counsel) - what to look for
  7. Claims processing vs. claims adjusting - what's the difference?
  8. Work-Life Balance
  9. Excessive medical treatment in the claims world - how to fix it
  10. Negotiation tips - what works in the real world?
  11. Condominium claims - why they give me (and everyone else) a fit, and possible solutions
