Austbrokers Conference 2023: Mission Possible

Austbrokers welcomed over 370 insurance professionals at the Austbrokers Conference 2023, held on Tuesday, 4 April 2023, to Wednesday, 5 April 2023, at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

The conference delivered content and programs aligned with the theme ‘Mission Possible,’ and sessions provided attendees with the opportunity to gain knowledge, skills, and insights, as well as engage with the broader group of delegates and speakers. A Claims Managers and Young Professionals team also enjoyed specific content during the conference.

Mike Emmett, AUB Group CEO and Managing Director opened the successful conference and over two days, brokers and partners listened to a range of keynote speakers and participated in diverse topic plenaries, which were hosted by Austbrokers along with Insurer and Agency partners.

An interactive and vibrant marketplace also proved to be a great success for all involved.

The winners were:

  • Allan Amber of MGA Insurance Group – the Frank Earl Award
  • The Austbrokers Broker of the Year – David Keys from AB Phillips.
  • The Austbrokers Claims Manager Award – Michael Bannon from Markey Insurance Brokers.
  • The Austbrokers Life Adviser Award – Gretchen Scannell from Austbrokers Life, working closely with Austbrokers Terrace and MGA Insurance Group.
  • The Austbrokers Young Professional Award – Rebecca Broad from MGIB.

The awards recognised those who have demonstrated excellence in the Insurance Broking profession.

Ben Bessell, Austbrokers Chief Broking Officer, said, “It was a very successful conference. Engagement in the marketplace and in the formal sessions was fantastic and the topics discussed led to many constructive conversations over the two days.

It was also great to once again hold the awards and showcase the many high quality individuals we have across Austbrokers.”
