Accelerating with NetVU

Accelerating with NetVU
If the yearly conference circuit is equivalent to the NFL’s football season, then NetVU’s Accelerate is the insurance industry’s Super Bowl. And like any good Super Bowl, Accelerate 2018 was exciting, buzzing with energy, and an absolute blast!

In the months leading up to the much-anticipated show, the entire ePayPolicy team worked with our heads down, toiling away on prepping our booth, swag, travel plans, and more. When it was finally showtime, Todd and I were more than itching to get to Atlanta.

Anyone in the insurance space knows that Accelerate is all about taking advantage of opportunities. Whether your goal is to build relationships, spend time with customers, network, pitch, or just have fun, opportunity is there for the taking.

Luckily for us, all of those aforementioned things were goals of ours, and I’m proud and pleased to say we were successful in hitting each of those goals — and then some.

Any chance we have to spend time with current or potential customers, as well as the Vertafore team, is a chance to build and solidify relationships, which is the most important thing for us at ePayPolicy.

And it might be the most important thing for anyone in the insurance industry, for that matter.
Todd, myself, and the rest of the team are all still coming down from the adrenaline high of last week. (Is it too early to start thinking about Accelerate 2019?) Thanks to all that stopped by our booth to learn about our payment processor (and grab some swag, which we completely ran out of!).

And an especially big thank you to NetVU for hosting the insurance event of the year, Vertafore for chatting, laughing, and sharing meals with me and Todd, and all of our amazing clients that stopped to snap pictures with us.

Cheers!

Who Run the World?

In honor of International Women’s Day 2018, the ePayPolicy team decided to compile a short list of some truly amazing women we think everyone should know about!

Whether you work in retail, at home, with children, or across the globe, the lovely ladies below (and millions more that we don’t have the space to list) are forces of nature to be reckoned with.

Who she is: Malala Yousafzai

What she does: The Pakistani native is an activist for female education. She is especially known for human rights advocacy, particularly for the education of women and children in her native home, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Her advocacy has grown into an international movement.

Why she’s awesome: No list of kick-butt women would be complete without the seemingly fearless Pakistani activist. At just 20 years young, Malala already bears the title of youngest Nobel Prize laureate. She is also a survivor of an assassination attempt in retaliation from her activism, the founder of the non-profit organization, the Malala Fund, and a New York Times Bestseller for I am Malala, which she co-authored.

Who she is: Alex Hisaka

What she does: Senior Manager, Global Content Marketing, LinkedIn Sales and Marketing Solutions 

Why she’s awesome: With one impressive track record (LinkedIn, SalesForce, PayPal), Hisaka is an inspiration to both men and women. An expert in all-things-marketing, Hisaka has built her outstanding career from the ground up, starting with her love of writing. That passion eventually lead to a career path in multiple industries, establishing her as an integral part of the success to any team.

Who she is: Eliana Murillo

What she does: Head of Multicultural Marketing at Google

Why she’s awesome: As a Harvard Graduate, Eliana not only heads up the Multicultural Marketing department at the most visible company in the world, she also founded it! Murillo places emphasis and passion for diversity in everything from customers and business owners to films in Hollywood.

Who she is: Bozoma “Boz” A. Saint John

What she does: Chief Brand Officer at 

Why she’s awesome: “I am a force of nature in fierce stilettos,” writes Saint John on her Twitter, and boy is she right! The NYC resident has a crazy, standout resume that is name-drop city. Previous positions include Apple (Head of Global Consumer Marketing), PepsiCo (Head of Music and Entertainment Marketing) and Ashley Stewart (an American plus size women’s clothing company and lifestyle brand) where she served as VP for over a year. Can y’all say HUSTLER?! Work hard, play hard.

Who she is: Kitty Ambers

What she does: Chief Executive Officer at NetVU

Why she’s awesome: For starters, we can’t overlook the fact that Kitty now lives in ePayPolicy’s home state of Texas! 

More than that, however, Ambers is the CEO of one of the most visible companies in the insurance space. While women make up 44% of the S&P 500 labor force, only 6% (SIX percent!) of those women are CEOs. That means, basically, Kitty Ambers is a freaking superhero! 

With an extensive and impressive background in the insurance industry, Ambers is leading the charge on, well, leadership. Whether she’s leading her team at NetVU or leading other women to reach for those coveted executive positions, she’s doing it with style, grace, and with that undeniable swagger that only folks from The Lone Star State possess.

Happy International Women’s Day to everyone out there supporting the movement.
