Jacobson Explores Disruptors Impacting the Insurance Industry at the Casualty Actuaries of the Southeast Spring Meeting

March 01, 2018

CHICAGO – In the age of fast-paced technology, disruption is the new normal. While insurance has historically been insulated against such trends, the industry is now face-to-face with ground-breaking changes forcing shifts and overhauls of its traditional business models. Tony Cañas, client advisor for The Jacobson Group, will discuss best practices for embracing disruptive trends at the Casualty Actuaries of the Southeast Spring Meeting in Charlotte, N.C.

“Disruptors can no longer be ignored within insurance,” said Cañas. “We are even seeing some cases where the industry itself is doing the disrupting.”

Cañas will present “The Disruptive Future: Strategies for Success in Today’s Evolving Reality” on March 12, at 1:00 p.m. The session will explore demographic trends within the industry, discuss emerging technological disruptors, and identify best practices for incorporating disruptive trends into your organization’s business strategy to ensure future success.

As a client advisor with Jacobson’s property and casualty team, Cañas provides organizations with temporary staffing and subject matter experts needed to effectively manage workload fluctuations, special projects and other short-term needs. Cañas is also the co-Founder and chief motivational officer at Insurance Nerds, a website devoted to providing talent development and career management advice to the insurance industry, and co-author of the best-selling book Insuring Tomorrow.
