Five Minutes with Ben Fidlow of Willis Towers Watson
Following his standing-room only session, A New Breed of Analytics: Holistic Risk Management Decision Making, we chatted with Ben Fidlow, global head of core analytics at Willis Towers Watson.
I think our industry has been slow to get to it, but we have a couple of advantages: we’re good at data, we’re good at risk analyses, and we can empower our corporate clients who are trying to figure out what to do with data and analytics. Once we get good at big data sets and analytics we can apply it to almost anything, so I think we can branch into helping our clients beyond risk as well. It could be manufacturing process optimization, sales, M&A activity.
