ReSource Pro LLC, the leading provider of insurance process efficiency solutions, is pleased to announce the second 2012 meeting of its Innovation Advisory Council. The event, which takes place at the YOTEL in New York City on July 18 will be featuring change management experts Mike Manes and Beth Montag-Schmaltz. Its theme is “Change or Die.”

With focus on change management, this event is a unique opportunity to tackle an issue that the insurance organizations need to face since the outlook for 2020 predicts a different distribution system from the one today. In order to successfully transition through the coming changes, agencies must embrace effective change architecture strategies.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Discover and define their own “starting point” in order to plot the journey to their future destination.
  • Consider strategies and processes necessary to leverage the “to be discovered” future technologies.
  • Commit to alignment with the client-defined and client-driver market that will be 2020.
  • Commence dialogue regarding the culture needed to assure passion, profit, and perpetuation.

Michael G. Manes has been described as a "Cajun Philosopher." His 38 years of experience in the insurance industry and the scar tissue accumulated serve as the foundation for his consulting practice and educational presentations on issues of planning, innovation, organizational operations and change management and architecture. He facilitates planning retreats, mergers and acquisitions, and agency rollups. Mike is a recognized speaker and writer on a broad range of industry and organizational issues. Mike has authored two books on strategic planning.

Beth Montag-Schmaltz, founding partner of PeopleFirm, is a recognized researcher, practitioner, innovator, and thought leader in the field of change management methodologies and tools. Throughout her 18 year professional journey, she has frequently been sought after to architect and manage complex change management programs for strategic and high-risk corporate initiatives.

ReSource Pro CEO Dan Epstein says that “We are very fortunate to have not only one, but two established industry thought leaders like Mike and Beth. They bring ideas, stories and tools that are both inspiring and educational and we believe that attendees will walk away with great ideas on how to manage change in their organizations and position themselves for industry leadership”.
