    Brian Feldman of Allison+Partners - Politics and the Insurance Industry

    in Business

    Even the most casual observer of the risk and insurance industries can easily see the “fingerprints” of government on the process and results. Legislation, litigation and regulation are much of the process.  The change that is the ACA is just one large example.   Even the most casual observer of government can easily see the “fingerprints” of politics and grassroots on the process and hence the outcomes.   


    In the past two decades, Brian Feldman has lived and worked at the intersection of healthcare, grassroots and politics.  As a founder of the Edison Group and now as a Senior Partner with Allison Partners – Brian will provide us with insight into the past, present, and future of the art of politics and the people and groups that determine the outcome.

    A “high tech” journey through 2020.

    in Business

    Moore’s law states that computer capacity doubles every 18 months.  Consider this – in 1993 I met Jim Sewell who ran a company called Bayes Corp.  His background was Military Intelligence.   He explained that 20 years earlier, in 1973, when Patty Hearst was kidnapped those searching for her approached him to see if he could use technology to help find her.


    After spending time to consider the possibilities he reported back – that he couldn’t find her but he could find everyone in America who was just like her.  This was 41 years ago – and he was working with very limited technology by today’s standards.


    Today’s guest is another Jim – James Speer.  He is a Ph.D. and a J.D.  He’s spent 24 years in academic medicine and has worked for a McKesson-sponsored consortium led by Harvard University School of Public Health and Duke University School of Medicine researchers.

    Leadership In The Day Of Tomorrow

    in Business

    Mr. Covey states that a “leader must begin with the end in mind.”  Unfortunately most managers begin their day with the status quo – the beginning in mind.  They walk into the office to face the crises du jour, a budget, Performa and problems amongst the folks.  They can’t look up, much less look out on the horizon of tomorrow.  Peter Arthur-Smith is the Founding Principal of Leadership Solutions, Inc, New York, which offers groundbreaking organizational tools and practices that can position executives to become Remarkable Leaders. 


    He has recently authored the book- “Smart Decisions: Goodbye Problems, Hello Options” - and is writing another, “Catching the Next Wave: Becoming Remarkable Leaders.”
