I am an impassioned data / predictive analytics and now liberated expert consulting with insurers answering the question, "We want to be better at being at using data driven insights to make decisions in our organization. HOW DO I GET THERE?" My business consulting centers on: Helping insurers and other businesses uncover the real business problems to determine if and how they can be solved with data/analytics, crafting an analytics plan through implementation and training, communicating ideas on using predictive analytics, creating adoption paths, rewards, risks, challenges and expected outcomes to both executive and staff level personnel. My goal is to assist carriers in unlocking the complete and available ROI of enterprise wide insurance analytics applications. I'm liberated because I am happy to be representing only my clients and not any employer. YOU are my focus.
My background mix of technical and executive level insurance company experience coupled with 20+ years and hundreds of conversations / projects with insurers on data and analytics, give me a rare and valuable perspective for you to leverage.
