Workshop Wednesday: Protecting your business from loss

Workshop Wednesday this month featured Dane Bubela, vice president at Frost Insurance, who discussed how carrying the proper insurance can protect your business from unexpected loss.

Bubela told the group of about 25 attendees that obtaining appropriate coverage can give business owners peace of mind from knowing that their assets, from the building and its contents to employees and inventory, are protected.  

“The ‘right’ coverage comes in many forms to suit businesses’ specific needs,” Bubela said. “But the first step is to identify risk exposure.”

Types of insurance coverage vary widely and can include general liability, commercial and property, professional liability, legal defense, worker’s comp, loss of income, and much more.

“It’s very important to read the details and know what is covered,” Bubela said. “In the event there is a claim, you want to make sure you are properly covered.”

HISD’s Business Assistance Supplier Diversity department hosts Workshop Wednesday, which is held on the first Wednesday of each month. Topics covered vary and are targeted to provide relevant information and assistance to M/WBEs interested in doing business with the district.
