Considered one of the greatest icons of insurance innovation, John Drzik will be one of the international speakers for the next edition of CQCS Insurtech & Innovation. Frequent speaker at sector conferences and events sponsored by major institutions - such as the World Economic Forum; the Harvard Business School; and the Financial Times - his presence in Brazil is perceived by him naturally. "Events like CQCS Insurtech & Innovation play a key role in the insurance industry. They bring together and promote the exchange of knowledge, best practices, trends and solutions, allowing us to continually seek smarter ways to do business and serve our customers, "he says. John also recalled that the country has significant relevance on the world stage for being the seventh largest economy in the world, which means having an extraordinary power of consumption, as well as one of the largest portfolios of natural resources. "Its influence on the Latin American continent and between the BRICS has always been strong and its economic changes tend to have a significant effect in several other emerging geographies and the international arena. The country has a great diversity of industries and foreign investments and is known to attract companies from all over the world, including mine. So I think it's safe to say that Brazil has an important place in the world economy, "he says. Currently, John is the president of Marsh Global Risk and Digital, a company that provides risk and insurance solutions through agencies, affinities and digital channels for small business and individuals. He has global responsibility for the company's activities in consulting, captive solutions, data, analysis and digital technology. Author of numerous articles on strategy, risk management and insurance, the executive has also been chairman of Oliver Wyman for almost 20 years, playing a key role in establishing the company's leadership position in financial services strategy and risk management consulting. CQCS Insurtetch & Inovação, the most important insurance innovation meeting in Latin America, will take place on June 12 and 13, 2019, at Pro Magno Events Center in São Paulo.
