The Insurance Times Awards …we’ve been shortlisted!!

Stanmore Insurance Brokers has been named a finalist in the Broker of the Year award scheme organised by the Insurance Times. The Insurance Times Awards are one of the most coveted accolades within the insurance industry and Stanmore is absolutely delighted that their children’s day nursery scheme dot2dot has been recognised for its ongoing success.

Shortlisted for the Schemes Broker of Year award, Stanmore’s hopefully award-winning scheme is dot2dot Nursery Insurance. Director Jackie Hyde launched the facility in 2003 and dot2dot now insures over 1,800 nurseries nationally with the backing of the UK largest general insurer, Aviva. Jackie said: “At dot2dot we pride ourselves on providing a very personal service, with every client having a dedicated individual to look after them.

“Nurseries can face some challenging times, whether that is trying to stay open following a major incident or needing guidance when a member of staff has had an allegation made against them.

“When this happens, you need to be able to turn to people that truly care”.

“We’re over the moon to be shortlisted. It is testament to the hard work and commitment from the squad at dot2dot and the wider Stanmore team.

“In addition, we wouldn’t be where we are today without our fantastic, loyal clients. In fact, 67pc of our original clients from 2003 are still with us today.” Said Jackie.

Jackie also thanked branding company Relative Marketing who have worked closely to develop the dot2dot new corporate image.

“We love the way Relative have raised the profile of Stanley, the dot2dot mascot and the creation of their new strapline, the bear that cares, which typifies what is at the heart of our business”. Explained Jackie

Jackie recently had to present to a panel of industry experts in London who will be making the decision about who wins. All the team at Stanmore now have their fingers crossed until December 7 when the winners will be announced at a glitzy awards event at the InterContinental 02.
