Central CA SBDC Regional Network
Helping Your Business Start, Grow and Succeed
Learn strategies, tools, and potential opportunities for small businesses that use or need insurance that may affect liability, property, and other insurances. On this week’s free webinar, SBDC director Kelly Bearden is joined by Morgan Clayton, Founder and Chair of Tel-Tec Security to discuss the current insurance crisis in California.  
Clayton discusses his findings about how when a small business owner needs insurance, they frequently discover the insurance industry is eliminating coverage, substantially increasing costs, and reducing product options and carriers. 
Using the tools and advice found in “Risk Management Field Manual” written by SBDC consultant John Pryor, Bearden and Clayton provide strategies and potential opportunities for businesses in the commercial insurance market that may affect liability, property, and other insurances. 
Bearden begins the webinar with a small business update of current topics, relevant programs and information small business owners don’t often find from other sources.   
This marks the 319th episode of the “Webinar Wednesday” business series that provides news and information helpful to employers and business owners.
