Bullard on Insurance: Consumer Tips and Industry Trends
In addition to the company focus on clientele, Don is keenly interested in industry trends and consumer advocacy. Hoping to bridge the gap between the two, he's working on an educational series, Bullard on Insurance.
With nearly 40 years of experience in management, business, customer service and the insurance industry, Don has everything essential to qualify as an industry expert. Still, his goal is focused on educating people -- if they're well informed on insurance issues they in turn will educate the industry.
Don's work on tips and trends materials will be extended through the office and online and will be shared freely -- 'share and share alike' via Creative Commons.
