We are privileged each year to recognize several outstanding presenters as part of the presenters' luncheon. With nearly 200 presenters present, we take pleasure in making these deserving awards. These presenters have demonstrated, sometimes over many years, the qualities we seek. What are those qualities? Here are some of the qualities that make for outstanding presenters at PLRB:

  1. Strong skills, deep knowledge, and extensive experience with the subject matter.
  2. Focuses on our advertised learning objectives. Learning objectives describe what attendees can demonstrate after attending this particular session.
  3. Sensitive to the audience. Addresses their needs and interests, first and foremost.
  4. Clear, compelling, engaging presentation. The audience is drawn into meaningful activities as everyone learns together.
  5. Practical, useful handouts. Attendees often take these handouts back to the office, employ them with future claims and share them with colleagues.
  6. High energy, enthusiasm for the subject matter and for teaching and sharing with industry professionals.
  7. Uses practical, real-life claim examples and scenarios.
  8. Organized, easy to follow. Presenter meets all deadlines in preparing for and delivering the session.
  9. Focuses on delivering excellent claims training and education. Meets the audience's needs, rather than promoting themselves or their companies.
  10. Delivers the latest and best information on the topic at hand; presents the information from the audience's perspective, rather than from the expert's perspective.
  11. Embraces creativity, new technology, and new ways to deliver claims training and education.
  12. Displays great teamwork in working with co-presenters

2019 Exhibit Booths and Sponsorships are now available.
2019 Claims Conference information will be listed in the fall.

Learning with and from others in our industry. A lot of great information was exchanged among attendees in the classes. interesting to hear about what others are doing and how it is working for them. I feel like it provides a perspective on common issues, insights that is difficult to gain in any other way.

Opportunity to network with other professionals and discuss relevant topics of the day.

PLRB remains the "gold standard" for insurance industry conferences.

For my first time attending I really felt like I took away many helpful points to use.

The conference was amazing and provided top notch educational opportunities, as it always does.

The sessions I attended were relevant to my job, engaging, and well done.

PLRB greatly appreciates the following claims service providers for their outstanding support for the 2019 Claims Conference.
