JANUARY 5, 2009 —Whether you work at an independent agency, carrier, captive, TPA, or governmental pool, the ability to write clearly and concisely is one of the three major insurance competencies.It has been estimated that poor writing costs the insurance industry upwards of $1 billion each year.


Now, AgentsofAmerica.ORG, a major new association devoted to serving the insurance industry, announces that it has begun a joint venture with The Communication Workshop of Port Washington, NY, to bring its members more than 30 different claims webinars. Some of these webinars are scheduled throughout the year; others may be booked anytime at a client’s convenience.


Blake will present a 90 minute webinar in Effective Writing for Agents and Brokers at Noon E.T. on January 21, 2009. Included in the price of the webinar will be one month’s access to the instructor for a critique of future writing samples. Enrollment is strictly limited. For more information on the webinars, click on January Events. According to Angelo Gioia of AgentsofAmerica.ORG, “Gary Blake, director of The Communication Workshop, is the ‘Dean’ of insurance writing in the insurance industry and we’re proud to offer his full range of webinars and on-site seminars to our members.

You don’t need any special software to attend a webinar; you just register – and we do the rest. When you take one of Gary’s webinars, you also receive a month’s access to Gary – by phone, fax, and e-mail – for immediate critiques of future writing samples.”


Blake’s lengthier (4 hour) webinars and his all day on-site seminar offer CE credits in New York State. In states having reciprocity agreements with New York, Blake’s writing classes potentially offer the awarding of CE credits in many states across the US.


When you log on to AgentsofAmerica.ORG (www.AgentsofAmerica.ORG), you will be able to receive information about any of Dr. Blake’s webinars and seminars or can simply register for a scheduled webinar.


Dr. Blake is author of the best-selling Elements of Business Writing (Pearson Education), which is used at more than 150 insurance carriers and which has more than 150,000 copies in print. His clients include IMT Insurance, Pacific Specialty, Farm Bureau, Louisiana Medical Malpractice, AAA of Michigan, HomeFirst Agency, and WO Claims.
