Strategic Account Management Roundtable
2018 Annual Meeting
Strategies to Enhance Client Value Deploying Machines That Outperform Human Intelligence
May 2/3, 2018
Des Moines, IA
Hosted by: Principal Financial Group
*Registration requires an invitation code
Forum for Strategic Account Management Officers at retirement plan service provider firms to exchange views and opinions about the general direction of the business and the strategic account management function.
Peer discussions focus on future trends in the industry, strategic management of accounts to meet company objectives (relationships with plan sponsors, their consultants, advisors, client relationship managers, TPAs, and operational units). Key topics attendees bring up in the registration process are discussed in depth to expose the full range of industry practices and service models.
At the 2018 Annual meeting, we will launch a thought leadership initiative to unlock client value for participating retirement plan service provider firms. This initiative will identify strategies to realize operational efficiency and client appreciation gains that employ cutting-edge data technologies in the age of singularity (artificial intelligence, robotics, mobility, wearables.)
Strategies will be documented in a 5-minute video for an audience of account managers and business unit senior managers. The video will stimulate creativity and inspire staff of participating firms to break new ground with the help of emerging tools and technologies. The goal is to deliver the video within 6 months of the Roundtable meeting.
Topics for discussion at peer roundtable sessions consist of attendee suggestions gathered in the weeks leading up to the meeting.
