Seminar - Don’t Get Caught Uncovered!

  • The Gladly 2201 East Camelback Road Phoenix, AZ, 85016 United States (map)

Have you ever thought to yourself: “I’m covered for that…right?” Arizona’s restaurants are more vulnerable than ever due to harsher enforcement of liquor liability, food contamination, data breach, discrimination, and assault laws. Your coverage may not be as comprehensive as you think, but who wants to wait for disaster to strike to find out!?

Join Local First Arizona along with David DeLorenzo of Ambassador Group Insurance and Gary Linder of Jones, Skelton, and Hochuli, P.L.C. at The Gladly this October for an in-depth look at what is, (and isn’t!) in your insurance. Get honest, up-to-date information on liquor liability, reporting claims to your carrier, and money-saving tips on how much you should be paying for coverage.

Invest in the long-term of your business with this proactive in-person seminar, and hear real horror stories – and how you can avoid the same fate.

What will be covered:

  • The most common claims and exposures in your industry,
  • An overview of insurance policies you should have and the ratings & limits given to your establishment,
  • How to properly report claims to your carrier,
  • How much exposure you really have when it comes to serving liquor to your patrons;
  • How to protect your establishment the best you can from claims that could come down the road.

About the presenters:

David DeLorenzo is a native Arizonan. He attended college at Arizona State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing. After college David worked for Warner Bros records distributor, which started a 10 year career in the record entertainment industry. While engaged in the record industry, and armed with marketing knowledge, David opened his first marketing company called Diamond in the Rough Promotions.

While building his business, David discovered a niche market that could use his services: the restaurant industry. He developed his current affordable insurance for all sectors of the hospitality industry. David is a dedicated member of Arizona’s restaurant community, constantly staying current on the bar and restaurant industry, marketing to ensure that he is providing outstanding, quality service for restaurateurs.

In addition, David has built a reputation in the industry based on the trust that he will always look to serve the best interest of his clients in both insurance price and coverage. David is a silent investor of four restaurants in the Phoenix metro area. David feels that by traveling to these restaurants and getting his hands dirty he better understands the needs of the restaurant industry and thus, his client.
