PLRB Presents! Inspirations

Tuesday March 21, 8:00 - 9:30 in Crystal J2

  • PLRB Presents! Inspirations features three dynamic and engaging short talks meant to inspire and motivate.
  • Leading the Hulks on Your Team
    Rod Patterson, VP H.O. Claims, Seneca Insurance Company
    The Hulk has immeasurable strength, but his erratic behavior creates problems for the team. To effectively lead Hulks that are on your team, you must have a high degree of self-confidence, and an equal, if not greater, degree of humility.
  • Lie, Cheat, and Steal Like Nobody’s Watching!
    Terence Kadlec, VP-Engineering & Specialty, MC Consultants, Inc.
    Perhaps the title’s a little misleading, but it got your attention. And maybe that’s the point – to talk about what makes all of us uncomfortable when it comes to ethics.
  • How Empathy Can Help Resolve Claim Conflicts
    Gregg Golson, VP-Program Director, J.S. Held, LLC
    What if I could provide you with a new tool to help you resolve conflicts? Empathy is integral to being an effective insurance professional, especially a claims professional.

PLRB Presents! Your Claims Story

Tuesday March 21, 10:30 - 12:00 in Crystal J2

  • PLRB Presents! Your Claims Story features three dynamic and engaging personal narratives on the winding road through the insurance industry.
  • Closing Doors to Open Opportunities
    Courtney Cooke, Vice President of Sales, Bees360
    I had this idea after talking with a 20+ year carrier employee who was impacted by a restructure and opted to take the severance offer. When we finished our conversation, she felt so relieved and energized about her future.
  • Building a Human-Centered Managed Repair Experience
    Hunter Powell, CEO, Accuserve
    One aspect that may get lost during a property loss claim is that the policyholder is enduring an emotional experience that needs attention beyond guiding them through a claims process. We should strive to be human first and property restoration experts second.
  • Oh, the Hats You’ll Wear!
    Kristin Kulesza, Claim Service Leader, Allstate
    My path in property claims was certainly not looked for, planned, or even considered in my career planning. Nor did I plan how winding, challenging, amazing, and satisfying this career would be. Yet, here I am, wearing many hats and enjoying it.

  • PLRB Presents! Industry Insights features dynamic and engaging new perspectives and ideas that claims professionals should be aware of.

    Rafael Gonzalez, Partner, Cattie & Gonzalez, PLLC
    With $1,000 per day per file civil money penalties coming on in 2023, MSP compliance is now a must for all liability claims payers. This talk will introduce liability claims professionals to these three compliance programs and the legal and financial dangers non-compliance may bring to your specific claim and your claims organization.
  • Bridging Risk Management & Claims Response
    Jeremiah Kiefer, Founder, CEO & EGA, The Deft Group
    In catastrophe prone regions, it can be a challenge to bridge risk management and claims response while maintaining quality over quantity.
  • Touchless, Touch-Less and Low Touch: Why Digitizing Analog Processes is Important
    Brandon Donatelli, Chief Revenue Officer, HOMEE, Inc.

It was my first time, so it was a great time hearing from a lot of different people and experiencing something new.

I like there are educated speakers who show genuine appreciation and passion for their topics.

I enjoyed the variety of sessions and the networking promoted within the session. I alsoappreciated the collection of exhibitors that had various ways of engagement.

The Networking was amazing, but just being able to be together with peers and new friendsagain was so needed!

I enjoyed meeting other professionals in the business. I also loved the various topics andhearing how other insurance carriers were addressing some of the same issues we encounter.
