Society of Insurance Research (SIR) Annual Conference
Call for Speakers

Conference theme: "Moving Past Disruption to Competitive Advantage"

Disruption.  For some companies it marks the end of their time as a market leader, for others it is an opportunity to move ahead, and for a few forward-thinking companies it is an opportunity to disrupt their business model into something better than before.

Come join us in Milwaukee as we explore these possibilities with speakers from companies that are in the midst of transition. Learn how they leverage research, analytics, competitive intelligence and analysis techniques to move past the noise and develop strategies to move their company into the future.
