Insurance Nerds Launches When Words Collide

ST. PAUL, Minn., June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Insurance Nerds, the go-to-source of transformational talent delivery and career management in the insurance ecosystem, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of “When Words Collide: Resolving Insurance Coverage and Claims Disputes,” a new resource for today’s insurance leaders by industry veteran Bill Wilson.

Karlyn Carnahan, head of property and casualty (P&C) insurance for the Americas at industry analyst firm Celent, wrote recently about the prevailing reasons many InsurTechs are destined to fail. Lack of knowledge about the industry and lack of understanding of the economics of insurance were first among those reasons. For insurance professionals and InsurTech startup founders in the P&C space, focusing specifically on claims, that makes Bill Wilson today’s unexpected superhero.

“When Words Collide” is a guide to understanding insurance policies written from the practical perspective of an industry veteran with nearly 50 years in insurance, and having earned the CPCU, ARM, AIM, and AAM designations. Wilson neatly and somewhat humorously reinforces the idea that the mission of an insurance company is to insure, to mitigate and homogenize risk in an increasingly dangerous world.

“The book is based on my experience assisting independent agents in getting initially denied claims paid,” said Bill Wilson, author of “When Words Collide” and founder and CEO of InsuranceCommentary.com. “The issues addressed by the book involve many industry players, from underwriters and adjusters to risk managers and attorneys involved in insurance litigation and mediation.”

“?’When Words Collide’ is the second book Insurance Nerds has backed as important to not only the Insurance Nerds community, but the industry at-large,” said Carly Burnham, co-founder of Insurance Nerds. “I typically zone out at the beach like everyone else, but this summer I wanted something with a little more teeth than ‘Eat, Pray, Love.’ There are points in this book that will make the light bulb go off over the heads of the industry’s newest insurance nerds, and other points that veterans will highlight for later use in board meetings and presentations.”

The former AVP of education and research for the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”), Bill Wilson is available for keynotes, sessions, and speaking opportunities at industry events, or for consultations and workshops at private company or association functions. His book, “When Words Collide: Resolving Insurance Coverage and Claims Disputes,” may be ordered through the Insurance Nerds website.
