to comp laude.
It’s unlike any other work comp conference – it is focused on what people and organizations are doing right, the right way – and the impact that has on the people we serve – injured workers.
There are some pretty emotional moments…injured workers sharing their stories about horrific accidents and their months if not years of recovery. One came from Brance Tully, a young man of eighteen who fell through a skylight two years ago – when he was 16.
After dozens of surgeries, untold hours of therapy and what could have only been an incredibly painful and seemingly-interminable journey, he is back at work. He called his adjuster the day he returned to be met with incredulity – justifiably so.
That was just one. Injured workers recovered from shootings, fires, vehicle accidents, falls and all manner of accidents.
There are several other reasons to attend:
- plenty of time to connect and network
- solid attendee list with folks from large employers, payers, and other buyers
- terrific location – the Pasea Hotel is pretty nice.
Kudos to Yvonne Guibert – a dear friend and colleague, and the best marketer in workers comp – for making this happen. Shout out to GB and Greg McKenna – his engagement with the “stories” folks are remarkable.
