    CBD, THC’s Mild-Mannered Kin, is a Risk Worth Watching

    CBD, THC’s Mild-Mannered Kin, is a Risk Worth Watching

    Cannabidiol (CBD), a chemical compound from the Cannabid sativa plant, may be less potent than its stony cannabis cousin THC, however CBD might be the far riskier relative. Nearly a dozen major CBD-related class action lawsuits, as well as a handful of legal and regulatory actions against some CBD companies, are pending. All of this bears watching by those in the sector who manage and deal in risk.

    Colorful Reflections from a Technology Veteran

    Colorful Reflections from a Technology Veteran

    You’ll get vintage, unfettered Doug Johnston in this recording as he retires after six decades in the insurance and technology business, almost exclusively at Applied Systems, the agency management system provider. Doug got interested in the industry when his father, an independent agent, took him to work one day and also showed him the computer room at Chubb Insurance, which was in the same building. He was hooked. That led to a long stint at Applied, beginning with the earliest years toiling away in the founder’s house. Doug’s dedication to Applied’s brand – and a wicked tongue to go with that – would send some other industry tech operators into a tizzy. For example, when a salesman was trying to get a meeting with Doug at a conference, the response was terse, loud and overheard by many: “Lose my business card.” At the heart of this storied career, though, is a fascination and passion for the independent agency system.

    Will Cannabis Businesses Bloom or Wither in a Post-Pandemic World?

    Will Cannabis Businesses Bloom or Wither in a Post-Pandemic World?

    We’re all finding out the hard way about the personal and economic perils that a global pandemic can bring. But things will eventually get better, and that’s not just wishful thinking. They always do. In this inaugural episode of the Insuring Cannabis Podcast, we ask experts how the cannabis industry will look after the COVID-19 crisis wanes. As it turns out, there may be a upside to whatever inexplicable impulse it was that made people hoard toilet paper.

    “When Words Collide” with Classic Rock

    “When Words Collide” with Classic Rock

    What does classic rock music have to do with COVID-19 and business interruption coverage? Nothing, actually. But that never stops insurance policy guru and When Words Collide policy author Bill Wilson from mixing up a little right/left brain conversation. A long-time educator and founder of Big “I” Virtual University, Bill is a staunch believer in “RTFP,” or “read the [insert a likely adjective here] policy” to truly understand what coverage you’re selling, buying, claiming or defending. And, based near Nashville, Bill is a decent guitarist in his own right. He describes his band and dives into the memory banks of his concerts – first, best, loudest, most surprising, and more. If you’re looking for a break from stressful COVID coverage, you’ll have fun with this recording, whether you know Bill or are hearing him for the first time.

    Power of “The Collective”

    Power of “The Collective”

    Here’s an inside look at how an insuretech can pivot. Montreal-based “Breathe Life” originally thought it would muscle into the insurance industry and work directly with consumers. But it moved away from aiming to disrupt agents and carriers. In this enlightening installment, Ian Jeffrey, founder and CEO, says Breathe Life began to see success with insurance customer experience software when it combined developers with “people who know the insurance world.” Home-grown carrier software won’t be as powerful as software licensed across dozens of carriers. “We can do better as a collective than anyone can do on their own,” Ian says. “One carrier spent $35 million on a technology solution and has nothing to show for it. We raised $4.7 million and have 9 customers and have software that works. Carriers and brokers are way better at other things; we’re way better at software.”
