TORONTO, ON — The Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (IBAO) is pleased to announce its partnership with Gore Mutual on the redesign of the IBAO Classroom, located at 1 Eglinton Avenue East.  Every year over 600 students come through the classroom to get their RIBO Level l and ll licences. Given the IBAO’s emphasis on broker education and the importance of continuously bringing quality talent into the channel, the association teamed up with Gore Mutual to heighten their classroom experience.

“Gore Mutual’s recent focus on thought leadership within the industry and their support of the broker channel across the province makes them an ideal partner on education,” said IBAO CEO Colin Simpson. Gore Mutual is a Platinum Sponsor of the IBAO, having boosted their sponsorship level in 2017 to support IBAO’s Annual Young Brokers Conference, held this year in Niagara Falls, June 6–8.

“We’ve consistently supported the development of new brokers coming into the insurance industry and young people looking to accelerate their careers,” said Paul Jackson, Chief Marketing & Distribution Officer, Gore Mutual. “In addition to sponsoring the Annual Young Brokers Conference, we’re thrilled to be associated with the IBAO Classroom by helping to redesign this modern space and bring it to life.”

“As the broker profession emphasizes a focus on customer experience and business evolution, it’s appropriate that the place where everything’s rooted – the classroom environment – matches the tone of contemporary vision,” said Simpson. “We applaud Gore Mutual’s investment in the next generation of insurance brokers and look forward to our continued partnership throughout 2018 and beyond.”
