Our Fundamentals


As a team, nothing describes Beyond Insurance better than our core fundamentals. 

COLLABORATE. Collaboration generates better ideas than working alone. Be inclusive of your teammates and open to different perspectives that may challenge your way of thinking.

CHALLENGE EACH OTHER TO BE GREAT. Look for the best in each other and provide rigorous support, including honest and direct feedback. Develop a disdain for mediocrity.

BE TRUE TO YOUR CORE. We embrace diversity, open communication, and differing perspectives to empower each of us to be our unique and authentic selves. The world is a better place for it.

BE POSITIVE. Choose to be optimistic and see the possibilities. Optimism creates energy and energy creates success. Make the most of each day by approaching every task with energy, focus, purpose, and enthusiasm. Be fully engaged.

CELEBRATE SUCCESS. Acknowledging people doing things right is more effective than catching them doing things wrong. Regularly give, receive, and ask for meaningful appreciation.

Our Story

Beyond Insurance was founded in 2007 by Scott Addis, an industry thought leader and visionary, who wanted to share his diagnostic, consultative risk management process with other insurance and risk management professionals. 

Word about these groundbreaking programs quickly spread, prompting carriers and insurance associations state associations to inquire about training that could offer a clear path to enhanced success for agents, field representatives, underwriters, and leaders. In response to this demand, Beyond Insurance has successfully delivered programs to hundreds of industry professionals who were seeking the proven risk management process that enabled Scott to be recognized as one of the 25 Most Innovative Agents in America with a $12 million personal book and a 95% hit ratio. 

From there, Scott started the Beyond Insurance Global Network with a small group of agency leaders who felt challenged to grow their agencies organically, smarter, and faster. They found that sharing and learning from each other helped them to navigate the issues that impacted their growth and success. 

For the past 17 years, Beyond Insurance has been a catalyst for transformation within the insurance industry.
