Panel Discussion With Frank Pennachio – Academy of Insurance 50% Off


A Conversation with Frank Pennachio – See below.

I usually try to stay away from advertising any company’s services – that what this blog has been known for is no advertising.  During the aftershow after my Kawasakian presentation last month, George and Patrick asked me a few additional questions when I brought up Frank’s name.

I have never seen the Academy of Insurance give such a large discount. 

Frank has a different outlook than me on quite a few insurance matters.  The Academy of Insurance – an Insurance Journal Company – asked me if I would be open to having a live conversation with Frank.  I said – sure.

If you are a member of the Academy of Insurance, it is freebies.

The Workers’ Compensation arena is complicated. Every state does its own thing. Every carrier handles its claims differently. Employers aren’t sure how it works sometimes, they just write the premium checks and hope that their premiums don’t go up next year.

We’ve brought together two industry veterans and friends of the Academy, Frank Pennachio and James Moore for a unique discussion about Workers’ Compensation insurance, its present, its future, and anything else that comes up.

Here are some topics that we plan to cover:

  • The influence of the Experience Modification Factor on pricing.
  • Technology’s influence on the role of the adjuster.
  • The role of the insurance company and the agent in the workers’ compensation claim process.
  • Any subjects that we disagreed on over the years including Predictive Analytics.
