Listen to Lester Morales, CEO of Next Impact and the creator of the Transparent Health Benefits movement, a 20-year industry veteran who spent 13+ years as a top performer and Chief Growth Officer at Willis Towers Watson, talk about how to change the conversation using innovation and transparency has the anchor.  The best part is that Lester will share actual client presentations and strategies that have allowed the Team at Next Impact to be a leader in building high-performing and transparent health plans.
