ITC Agency Connect

Agency Connect

... a clearer picture is emerging, one where a strong middle market is an essential part of the overall ecosystem.

Agency Connect is breaking ground, giving the agency and broker community an international forum to learn from one another as they face many of the same challenges seen in the wider insurance industry: the increasing rate of digitization, evolving policyholder expectations, and the ongoing stream of emerging product segments. This all-day event will create a space for entrepreneurs and incumbents alike to learn about the latest technological trends, discuss specific challenges, and share their unique responses and adaptations.

“Early Insurtech conversations focused on the role of the agent and whether technology would disrupt the need for the agency and broker channel,” says Jay Weintraub, CEO of InsureTech Connect. ”Now, a clearer picture is emerging, one where a strong middle market is an essential part of the overall ecosystem. These agencies of the future, however, will look substantially different. We at ITC want to help.”

Speakers will include:

  • Amy Zupon, CEO, Vertafore
  • Michael Ferber, CEO, Dovetail Insurance
  • Jennifer Linton, CEO, Fenris
  • Ilya Bodner, CEO, Bold Penguin
  • Gary Hoberman, CEO, Unqork
  • Shannon Goggin, CEO & Co-Founder, Noyo
  • Said Taiym, EVP & Chief Digital Officer, Lockton
  • Michael Furlong, CEO, Indio Technologies

“Change is a constant in today’s insurance landscape and the pace is quickening every day,” says Zac Overbay, COO, Woodruff Sawyer. “Navigating the ground between the innovation mindset and innovation execution is now critical for preparing for tomorrow. Agency Connect will orient brokers and agencies toward the key guideposts on the path forward.”
