    Executive Keynotes:

    As part of the worldwide financial services team at Microsoft, Mr.
Maroney focuses on helping companies enable their front line staff with the
customer insight and service tools that today's consumers, and increasingly
producers, expect. Microsoft refers to this empowerment strategy as becoming a
People Ready Business. In the insurance industry, Microsoft provides this
capability through a connected series of business solutions and technology
enablers such as CRM called the Insurance Value Chain (IVC). As Mr. Maroney
will discuss, EDS Solcorp is a key partner in the IVC from their wealth
management offerings through to their core processing systems.
    Charlie Wood is a Technical Evangelist working with software vendors to
create solutions which integrate to, or are built on top of, the Microsoft
Dynamics CRM platform. His primary role is to work as a catalyst to enable
Microsoft's partners to bring to market solutions which meet customer needs
through leveraging Dynamics CRM integrated with other Microsoft technology.
Mr. Wood's presentation will demonstrate how Microsoft Dynamics can be
utilized within the insurance and financial industries.
