Small Biz Matters Podcast: The Small Business Insurance Basics & The Future Of Insurance

Alexi Boyd
Written by Alexi Boyd

Small Biz Matters is a weekly radio show on community radio station Triple H 100.1FM – it’s the half hour program where you work ON your business rather than IN it. Hosted by Alexi Boyd from Boyd Office Management Services.

When you start a business you know you need insurance but like lots of things about starting or running a business; it can be confusing. What type of insurance do I need? What level of cover? Do I need public liability or professional indemnity, and what does that even mean?

And the biggest question of all is WHEN do I need insurance? When am I that important; making enough money or have a large enough risk where insurance becomes crucial?  And how do I even start to quantify all that I need insure?

Well who better to ask than Michael Gottlieb, the founder of BizCover, Australia’s leading online small business insurance service.

Listen here:

Topics the show will be covering:

  • Are Aussie small business owners getting the right insurance?
  • Under-insurance is a real problem in Australia as 13% of SME’s don’t have any, and more than 20% of SME’s aren’t insured for what their business assets are worth! Why is this the case?
  • What are the rules of risk? Do small business owners needs to insure against everything or are there some fundamentals to start with?
  • When should I make a claim and what is the process?
  • The future of insurance in the wake of climate change
  • How will digital disruption and AI impact big business and small businesses alike?
