David Seel, chairman of Hampshire-based Healthy Pets Insurance, the UK's biggest independent cat and dog insurer, has been invited to be a keynote speaker at an insurance summit in the USA.
David will speak at the North American Pet Health Insurance Association's conference in Virginia on May 28, 2014.
"The US insurance industry is deeply aware that some sectors - notably pet insurance - can learn a great deal from the way the UK operates; it's quite surprising how under-developed the US pet insurance industry is given the size of the market, American's love of pets, and the sheer commercial focus the country has when it comes to personal-finance and insurance," said David Seel.
"I'm immensely flattered that they have invited me to speak about how the industry can develop in the USA."
