June 6th, 2015 – Don Cesar Resort Hotel, St. Pete Beach, FL.
When you think of the most influential (Thought Leaders) in the Self-Insured industry…, you are thinking of the NCSI, the National Counsel of Self Insurers. This highly influential organization represents over 3500 employers…, many of which are Fortune 500 companies. In addition the NCSI represents a majority of individual state Self-Insurer associations. With its primary interest of workers’ compensation and workers’ compensation liability, it speaks at the national level on issues affecting both.
One of the top issues discussed at the 2015 Annual Meeting, was how to control and investigate fraudulent/exaggerated workers’ compensation and bodily-injury claims. Humbly, I was invited to present on one of the most effective techniques to defend against these types of claims…, which is the use of tactical Remote Surveillance in the investigation process.
For over 90-minutes, members such as Wal-Mart Stores, Walt Disney Company, Tyson Foods, Costco, General Motors, Navistar, Raytheon, etc., were educated on the processes, procedures, legalities, and statistical data associated with remote surveillance technologies. The audience was engaged, to say the least, and many were hearing this information for the first time.
The thought leaders asked many great questions, quickly understood the value proposition, and EMBRACED the technology. Next years event will take place at the Wyndham San Antonio Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio, Texas May 22-25.
10/20/15 UPDATE: Since the presentation, we have worked over fifty (50) USV/Drone investigations for NCSI members. The results have been outstanding and the impact has been substantial & measurable.
