Release Date: Nov 11, 2012

Orlando, FL, November 12, 2012—Sonja J. Guenther, Willis of Colorado, was honored with the IRMI Words of Wisdom Award during the 32nd IRMI Construction Risk Conference in Orlando. The Words of Wisdom, or “WOW,” Award recognizes a speaker who has made an outstanding contribution to the construction and insurance industries by unselfishly sharing his or her risk and insurance expertise with exceptional delivery skills at the annual Conference hosted by International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI).

IRMI President & CEO and Conference Cochairman Jack Gibson explained why Ms. Guenther was chosen to receive the prestigious award.

“Sonja instructs on complex, technical topics, such as experience rating, and she brings these difficult concepts down to a level that anyone can understand. As a result, those who attend her workshops always go home with practical knowledge that they can put to immediate use, and this makes her a very popular presenter,” Mr. Gibson said.

Ms. Guenther is the 23rd winner of the WOW Award. Previous recipients are listed in the IRMI website.

The IRMI Construction Risk Conference is the only national symposium devoted exclusively to insuring, bonding, and managing the risks of construction projects. The 33rd IRMI Construction Risk Conference will be held November 17–21, 2013, in San Diego, CA.
