Thoughts from Past Attendees
“This information was very helpful and is of value to my role in the claims organization. Info regarding the inaccuracy of observer data is a key callout as it is often foundational in deploying claim associates. I would recommend [DDA] to all Directors in our Underwriting, Product and Claim organizations.”DDA Attendee
“I am responsible for my company’s disaster response, so the information about your deployment and tracking was very helpful.”DDA Attendee
“I focus on the pricing aspect of CAT perils, so learning more about the science behind the perils is extremely helpful.”DDA Attendee
