Jacobson Highlights Emerging Insurance Trends and Next Practices at IASA’s Chicago Conference

April 23, 2019

CHICAGO – As the industry becomes more complex, navigating evolving insurance realities can prove challenging. Margaret Resce Milkint, managing partner of The Jacobson Group, will highlight emerging trends and share insight on how future leaders can stay ahead at the Insurance Accounting and Systems Association’s Chicagoland Spring Conference.

In her session, “The Insurance Kaleidoscope: Trends, Tips and Takeaways,” Milkint will dive into several disruptors affecting the industry – such as the gig economy, artificial intelligence and fluid work environments – as well as their impact on human capital. The session will explore the many facets of the insurance talent kaleidoscope and next practices for professionals as they adapt to the future of work.

“The insurance industry is in a state of constant transformation and leaders must be able to steer their organizations in ways business schools don’t teach,” said Milkint. “Investing in human skills, embracing mentorship opportunities and understanding the industry’s many disruptors are necessary for ongoing success in today’s workplace.”

The presentation will take place on May 6 at 8:30 a.m. CDT in Chicago. For more information on the event, visit
