NEEDHAM, Mass. – February 24, 2015 – Widely regarded as the property insurance industry's premier thought-leadership conference, the 9th Annual Property Innovation Summit is an exclusive event that brings together senior property executives from the nation's top insurance carriers for two days of learning and networking April 27-29 at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA.
The Innovation Summit is unique in the insurance industry for featuring a diverse lineup of authors, analysts, and experts in property insurance who will lend fresh insights and inspire new ideas on leadership, disruption and innovation. Attendees will gain key insights on new trends that can help transform their business. Participants will have a number of opportunities to share ideas more informally during multiple networking events.
Jack Zenger, world-renowned expert in the field of leadership development, will keynote "Finding and Developing Innovative Leaders." Jack is the best-selling author of a number of books including "Results-Based Leadership" and "The Inspiring Leader: Unlocking the Secrets of How Extraordinary Leaders Motivate."
"The best leaders set the example of being open to new ideas," said Zenger. "They welcome the involvement of others, realizing that collaborative groups have been shown to produce greater innovation than individuals."
Dr. Angela Lee Duckworth, Associate Professor of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania, will present "The Keys to Success? Grit." A 2013 MacArthur Fellow, Angela studies non-IQ competencies, including self-control and grit, which predict achievement. Prior to her career in research she was a McKinsey management consultant.
Forrester Research analysts Ellen Carney and Frank Gillett will explore the latest trends in the connected home and the business impact of the Internet of Things (IoT). A previous Summit speaker, Ellen Carney broke the story in mainstream media about Google's plans to enter the insurance business. Ellen and Frank bring to the Summit the inside-track on the innovation and disruption of the connected home and the connected car.
Frank Abagnale, acclaimed author of the memoir "Catch Me if you Can," starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the ultimate fraudster in the movie version, is one of the world's most respected authorities on forgery, embezzlement, and secure documents. For more than 36 years he has worked with, advised, and consulted with hundreds of financial institutions, corporations and government agencies around the world.
Harley Manning, also of Forrester, is a research director in the Customer Experience practice and the coauthor of "Outside In: The Power of Putting Your Customers at the Center of Your Business." His talk will provide a comprehensive study of why customer experience is fundamental to the success of every business.
Cris Carter will delight audiences with stories of his gridiron exploits as the NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings. ESPN's Chris Berman said of Mr. Carter, "All he does is catch touchdown passes."
