The ITL leadership team brings together a powerful mix of insurance-industry expertise, experience in publishing, and world-class editors, writers and marketers. And, of course, there’s you—the thought leaders whose ideas will shape the future of insurance and the readers who will implement many of those ideas.
There is a saying we subscribe to: “Nobody is as smart as everybody.” So, rather than have a staff of people try to report on all important developments in all parts of the complex world of insurance, we have created a platform where the smartest people can share their best ideas. Together, we will be smarter than any one expert or publication can be.
The short answer is: Because we can. The Internet and, in particular, social media have created ways of sharing ideas and communicating that weren’t possible back in the dark ages—think the early 1990s. And we all know that insurance needs help: The complexity is stunning. So, any way that we can simplify and streamline insurance will produce huge benefits.
We vet articles that are submitted to us, edit them in collaboration with the thought leaders who write them and then post articles here. We provide links so that readers can communicate with the thought leaders and draw on their expertise. Over time, we will add more video, webinars and other capabilities. The rest is up to you.
