SCORE - WALT ABBOTT
I worked as a risk management and insurance consultant for several national insurance brokerage firms for 30 years, handling all types of clients from small businesses to Fortune 500 corporations. After early retirement, I formed a risk management consulting firm, working primarily with one of the largest construction companies in the US. While still consulting, I joined the SCORE DC Chapter and have been a mentor and outreach coordinator for the past 11years.
I can help start and grow your business through my extensive local networking connections and four decades of experience in risk management and insurance. As the SCORE DC Outreach Coordinator, I have spent 6 years attending numerous small business events, giving workshops and spreading the word about SCORE's fantastic, free mentoring opportunities.
In conjunction with the SBA and AARP, I have participated in numerous Encore Entrepreneur webinars. Being a Vietnam Vet and remembering the obstacles I had after leaving the military, I have focused on active duty military personnel, veterans and military spouses. Through the Boots to Business workshops and mentoring to all levels of the military, I have increased my knowledge of what is needed to translate military skills into business successes. I have also presented frequent workshops and panel discussions at the US State Department's Foreign Service Institute and, in 2017, I presented workshops on entrepreneurship to help business students at Bowie State University.
