Schaumburg, Ill. (September 19, 2017)- What company will be the next Uber or Amazon?

Few people have a disruption divining rod to answer that question but if there is anyone who can come close, its Tony Seba, world-renowned author, thought leader, educator, speaker, entrepreneur, and author of “Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation,” “Solar Trillions” and “Winners Take All.”

Seba keynotes the second annual Assurance University Symposium, themed “Pardon the Disruption,” on September 25, 2017 in Rosemont with a discussion on the new wave of market disruptions caused by exponential technology improvements, business model innovation and disruptive product design. His presentation is titled “Clean Disruption – Why Conventional Energy and Transportation will be Obsolete by 2030.”

“Tony Seba is a true expert on disruption making him the perfect individual to kick off our second annual Symposium,” said Steven Handmaker, CMO of Assurance. “Seba will set the stage for a day of education and inspiration as attendees settle in to learn more about how they can minimize risk and maximize health within their organizations.”

The Assurance University Symposium is a one-day conference that will attract CEO’s, CFO’s, human resource professionals and other business leaders to discuss and learn from some of the disruptions impacting organizations now and in the future. The one-day conference allows attendees to choose several tracks that touch on ‘disruption’ as it relates to insurance. This includes everything from the current state of ACA Repeal and Replace to the increase in employee lawsuits, cyber security threats and pharmacy costs for organizations across the U.S.

The Assurance Symposium is an extension of Assurance’s educational platform, Assurance University, which allows busy HR professionals and business leaders to keep updated on the rapidly changing insurance marketplace. Assurance University helps business leaders better understand and control the cost of insurance within their organization.

The Assurance University Symposium will take place Monday, September 25, 2017 at The Westin O’Hare, 6100 North River Road in Rosemont, IL from 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. For more information about the Symposium, including speakers, continuing education credits and an agenda, visit
