Key Quotes:

  • “Innovation is about creating things that don’t exist.” – Jim Harris
  • “Look at the hugely deflationary impact of technology and innovation. We have to use technology, we have to be innovative in order to fight inflation in these high inflationary times. It gives a company the ability to either lower its prices, or raise its margin in a competitive market. And so, technology and innovation are absolutely essential today, especially for independent insurance brokers and agents.” – Jim Harris
