#ITC2018 Recap: There is a Movement Happening

Posted by Phil Alampi on Oct 8, 2018 9:56:00 AM

This was my first year attending InsureTech Connect (ITC) and it did not disappoint! Held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV, the conference was an explosion of fantastic industry talent, thought leadership and ambitious ideas. It has grown from 1,500 attendees in 2016 to nearly 7,000 this year!

Think Like Airbnb: Reimagining Customer Experience

Posted by Phil Alampi on Jul 30, 2018 9:57:04 AM

One of the cofounders of Airbnb, Brian Chesky, is famous for his 7 Star Design Principle. His approach starts with defining what a 5 Star customer experience looks like, then continues to push the boundaries, making it better and better, until the realm of possibility is left behind. He draws the line of what is possible at 7 Stars in his business, but his ideas go way beyond that. Take a look at how he defines each level within his part of the hospitality industry.

I come from India. My father was a farmer and our day typically started early. My mother was a homemaker raising six kids in a challenging environment and on a variable income. My whole life, I’ve believed in working hard and investing yourself in your occupation.
