On March 7th we asked a simple question: should insurers prioritize customer-first or digital-first initiatives?
650+ conference attendees joined us full day to discuss.
Here is what our keynote speaker, Tom Troy, had to say:
“I would have to pick customer; I have worked at companies that built either a great product or a great concept before and it didn’t work [or] it didn’t sell. Because they forgot to ask if any customer wanted it. So I think you’ve got to understand the customer first . . . And if you focus on the customer, first, . . . [you realize] the need to build our strong digital capabilities for your future… “
A special thank-you to everyone who joined us in NYC.
