Nigeria’s leading business platform is set to hold the first of its webinar series, themed “Building Financial Resilience with Insurance Solutions Amid COVID-19”.
With the COVID-19 disruption, households and small businesses need to make efforts to transfer their risks to protect themselves from uncertainties through insurance. The Nigerian Insurance Industry is a massive industry covering various issues from fire to auto accidents, death, oil and gas leakages, and so on.
They also provide insurance plans that cover households and SMEs-the backbone of the Nigerian economy.
The webinar holding on Wednesday, March 31, 2021, will be headlined by Ekerete Ola Gam-Ikon; who will deliver the keynote address. He is the Founding CEO of Finterate Projects, a business-fitness consultancy firm and Co-Founder, Smart Coach Global Nigeria Limited, a progressive community of seasoned business coaches and brave entrepreneurs.
The webinar would provide answers and insights to questions such as; How can small business owners benefit from insurance packages? In a highly religious space like Nigeria, what can be done in tandem with faith to grow insurance subscription? Are there any lessons to be drawn from the COVID-19/#EndSARS saga? How effective has NAICOM been in harnessing and projecting the insurance sector?
Mr David Oputah, the Managing Editor of BizWatch Nigeria, said the motivation for the webinar series is to make it a part of the company’s contribution to society and starting with the insurance industry is geared at promoting financial flexibility, provision of insurance solutions and engage insurance experts on the way forward for the sector.
