2010 Entrepreneurial Insurance Symposium

On September 14 and 15 MarketScout will host over 400 industry leaders in Dallas, Texas at the fourth annual Entrepreneurial Insurance Symposium. To maintain market share, underwriters, retail agents and intermediaries must adapt. Those who understand they must change in order to thrive in the new market will excel. You simply cannot keep running down the same old path. It is a precursor to certain extinction.

Attendees will enjoy a networking mall, cocktail reception, breakfasts and luncheons that foster an exceptional opportunity to meet other forward-thinking executives. This gathering is not for those supporting the status quo; rather, the focus is upon change itself and how to capitalize new opportunities created over the course of the last year.

Prior attendees describe the symposium as the only true insurance industry “think tank” with a focus on new concepts, ideas and innovation. Speakers will profile new initiatives and innovative methods their firms are using to position themselves for growth.
