Agency Flood Resources was honored to present at the inaugural Business Insurance masterclass – Flood Risk Orlando. This one-day conference was held on March 23, 2017 in Orlando, FL and featured leading insights in flood risk and insurance from national experts and regional thought leaders.
The event brought together over 100 commercial insurance professionals to discuss the current conditions of flood insurance, and predict the future of the flood market. The attendees explored how brokers and agents can navigate the NFIP, private market options and risk management tools to improve their flood practices and better serve their clients.
Dan Freudenthal, President at Agency Flood Resources, shared his insights on the topic of “Overcoming client obstacles: Communicating risks, requirements and rates”. During the session, panelists discussed the factors that most complicate the communication of risk, and how they can be minimized. They also examined what changes will allow the private flood insurance market and the NFIP to operate to better protect insureds.
Mr. Freudenthal was presenting together with David Maurstad, Assistant Administrator Federal Insurance at FEMA and Del Schwalls, President at Schwalls Consulting. The session was moderated by Blake Lovvorn, Assistant Director, Risk Management at University of Central Florida.
As a nationally recognized expert and thought leader in the area of flood risk, Mr. Freudenthal has been an active speaker at risk management and commercial real estate conferences about the topics of flood risk, flood insurance, flood zone correction and elevation certificates, and has published numerous articles in commercial real estate, risk management and insurance industry publications.
