On March 27th, we kicked off the 2019 class of Leadership Insurance program with a great first session. Held at EngenuitySC, the class focused on a broad overview at the insurance technology cluster in Columbia, while setting the stage for the next seven months. Additionally, the class featured a welcome from our chair, Maria Price of Duck Creek Technologies.
Our class participants introduced themselves and spent some time discussing what they felt were the most pressing challenges for their industry, and their expectations for the program. Finally, the class took a turn to the local effects of having a cluster located here in Columbia. They learned the benefits of such clusters and why Columbia provides the perfect environment for a growing industry to expand. We are looking forward to the rest of the program with these outstanding participants.
