BIBA launches promotional video to showcase the role of brokers

13th May 2015

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has launched a case study video as part of its ‘Save and Grow’ campaign aimed at promoting insurance brokers to Small and Medium sized businesses (SMEs).

The video is designed to showcase the critical role of insurance brokers to SMEs. It features owners of five businesses across a range of industries – from hospitality to automotive to horse-racing – that stress the significance of insurance brokers to their success.

It is being launched at BIBA’s annual conference and BIBA is encouraging brokers to share it on their website and social media channels.

Graeme Trudgill, BIBA’s Executive Director, said: “Brokers have a great story to tell and we are telling it for them.  This is yet another tool to help brokers promote the value that they bring to their customers.  We’ve secured five really good examples of customers talking about how brokers help their business. We’ll be pushing this out via social media and hope that brokers will join in too.”
