Robert P. Hartwig, Ph.D., CPCU: The Big Picture on Insurance – What You Need to Know

Dan Kennedy used to say, ‘School’s never out for the pro’. Well, school is about to start. And our teacher is one of the most respected observers the insurance industry has ever known. If you want to know how to ‘boost your agency Instagram followers by next Tuesday’, this isn’t the podcast episode for you.

But, if you want to know – and you should – the current state of the industry, the forces that are driving it, where it’s going and how to respond strategically, drop everything and listen.

Or, perhaps you’ve seen him quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Financial Times, BusinessWeek, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, CFO, Fortune, Forbes, The Economist and many others throughout the world.

There’s a reason the world has called on Dr. Hartwig to explain insurance. Few understand it as deeply as he does. Take this rare opportunity to learn from one of the industry’s most esteemed masters.
