1:30 PM- AFTERNOON KEYNOTE ADDRESS
In 2017, Nationwide expanded Terrance’s Chief Marketing Officer role to include overseeing a new organization called the Emerging Businesses Group. The logic is simple, although our businesses models are complex: marketers intimately know our customers and our Emerging Businesses teams are dedicated to solving their needs and friction points in new and unique ways. The insurance industry is made up of trillions of dollars of premium, making it ripe for disruption from non-traditional competitors and startups. Our category must think differently and prepare for a future that is evolving faster than any other time, driven by technology advances and consumer behaviors. Terrance will provide an overview of why and how establishing an Innovation group and Emerging Businesses team focused on the future is one way Nationwide is preparing for what’s next.
Terrance Williams, President of Emerging Businesses & Chief Marketing Officer, Nationwide Insurance
