Don’t Keep up with the Kardashians’ - Social Media - Don’t make it easy for thieves

06 Nov 2017

The omni-present Kardashian family are well known for being relentless trend-setters; however the aggravated robbery of Kim Kardashian last October was one trend we would rather not keep up with.

Unfortunately, the scary fact is that this high profile robbery does reflect something we’ve witnessed here at Covéa Insurance. In the past five years I’ve seen significant increase in the number of aggravated burglaries, particularly of HNW properties, which can leave customers severely traumatised and suffering from physical injury.

The question, to some extent, is no longer, shall we get on board with the use of social media, the social media train has left the station, the world has gone social.  
 
The rise in popularity of social media amongst insurance broking employees is testament to this.  
 
They are not alone; customers, prospects and people in the world at large are using social media.

Insurance Brokers - Who owns your LinkedIn contacts?

23 Jul 2013

At a breakfast seminar at the Old Lloyd’s Library on the use of Social Media in the general insurance last week, the first presenter asked the 100 or so delegates assembled…

‘Can I have a show of hands please, how many people in the audience are on LinkedIn?’ 

All hands duly shot up skyward.
