Insurance Innovators UK 2022
Etymology Consulting partners with thought leaders from around the world to assist us in keeping a pulse on the insurance world at large. Jonathan Baker, an insurance industry thought leader throughout the United Kingdom and Europe for the last twenty years, attended the Insurance Innovators UK Conference in November on our behalf, and we are pleased to share his feedback and perspective on the event.
