Take Advantage of Great Learning Opportunities In Claims

Listening to Other Experts in the Industry is One of the Best Ways to Improve the Future

War stories are really a great way to learn about how to improve claims handling. Claims professionals love telling a great claims story and I know I have learned so much from those stories of the past.  When the opportunity to learn from those involved in major past events occurs it is best to jump at that chance to learn something new. The upcoming Americas Claims Event Conference in New Orleans this June 14-16, 2011 is just one of those opportunities to learn from some great speakers.

Stephen Cozen, one of the founders of the Philadelphia law firm of Cozen & O’Conner, will be giving the keynote address in New Orleans on June 15, 2011. Among his prior accomplishments, Mr. Cozen has been a part of some of the largest claim disputes in the past few decades including the 1980 fire at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and the walkway collapse at the Hyatt Regency in Kansas City in 1981.  Most recently, Mr. Cozen joined the list of outside attorneys helping BP deal with the fallout from last summers Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

As the Deepwater Horizon accident showed the industry yet again, the nature and extent of catastrophe losses can create new issues for even the most well established claims entities. Mr. Cozen give his insight into this major loss that gave birth to a number of claim and coverage issues not previously seen in the industry.

Other keynote speakers will include Paul Tuhy, Global Head of Claims for XL Insurance and Peter Piotrowski, SVP and Head of Private Client Group, CHARTIS.

This event will provide claims professionals another great opportunity to listen to those leaders shaping the industry. Continuing our mission to help make claims handlers better, we think this is a great opportunity to learn from some of the best in the industry.
