Speaker: David Edgar, CIP, Senior Vice President,
Public Sector Leader (Canada) Aon Reed Stenhouse Inc.

From block chain to artificial intelligence, technology is changing our world. 
As industries are evolving, the insurance industry is using data and analytics to help spark innovation. Weather volatility, chronic climate risk, volcanic eruptions, evolving terrorism landscapes and the internet of things and social media – what are we in for in 2020?
  

edgar.jpgDavid is responsible for leadership of public sector account executive and client service teams in Canada. Accountable for business plan development, execution and ultimate result. He began his career in Winnipeg in 1983 and has held several positions with Aon in Winnipeg, Vancouver and Toronto. David left Aon to start up QBE's Canadian branch utilizing the Lloyd's franchise license to deliver specialty product underwriting and claims services across Canada. Returning to Aon and to Winnipeg in 2018, he works closely with the National team to consult with the public sector including Indigenous communities to assess, mitigate and transfer risk to remove volatility from the public entity's balance sheets.
