Mike brings a network that spans 6 continents and over 8,000 followers, 40 years of accumulated business acumen, and tremendous wisdom around B2B sales and business development, B2B digital marketing, social technologies, and insurtech consulting.
Based on hands-on experience in the 2000's with the development of the Internet & e-Commerce in the insurance industry, followed by the maturation of social technologies in the 2010's, it seems like in the 2020's Blockchain will answer the big question, "What's next?" Thus the launch of Blockchain Wisedom in 2019. Let's see where Blockchain improves the insurance ecosystem in the years ahead.
