Another beautiful day to be golfing! We really enjoyed this tournament was on Monday, June 11, 2012.
This year the CIP Society of the Insurance Institute were rewarded for moving their tournament from September to June with excellent weather. Wyndance Golf Club in Goodwood was the spectacular venue.
Cameron & Associates helped sponsor the event & Sharon Cameron ran the putting contest where players competed for Blue Jay tickets for an upcoming game. Jim, Brian and Derrick were joined by Scott Pidduck, now joining QBE as a professional indemnity underwriter. Our “Green” Team’s score of -10 did not carry the day but we finished tied for 3rd (4th by retrogression).
All proceeds from the Mulligans, putting contest and the raffle tickets went to the John E. Lowes Scholarship Fund. This is a great cause, and we were very happy to be a part of the group supporting this through golf!

Louis Gagnon, President and Chief Operating Officer of Intact Insurance spoke to a capacity crowd of 98 Insurance executives at the Insurance Institute’s “At the Forefront” seminar on May 23rd, 2012.
This presentation included discussions on:
- Operational Excellence
- Understanding the Changing Customer
- Attracting and Keeping Talent
Louis’ message on how to achieve excellence was to focus on the consumer and listen to what they say and design products and services around that. This is not that easy to accomplish in an environment where some of the products, such as auto insurance, cannot be differentiated by law.
Like most visionaries, he believes that the social media will shape the landscape of how to best deliver products and services going forward.
This was a great seminar and I was very glad to have attended. The presentation sparked a lot of interest and conversations on the subject of considering the customers’ needs and demands, as well as the changing demographics of the workforce.
Thanks again to the Institute for hosting this informative session!
We’re excited to announce that we will be delivering an Intro. to AB workshop on May 2nd at the Insurance Institute in Toronto.
We would love to see you there! Our last courses on this topic were a big hit.
This one-day course is meant for someone with little-to-no claims experience, and will give a general overview of what benefits are, and some claims handling procedures.
