Courtney Dillon
Vice President of Sales & Marketing
Intellectual Property Insurance Services Corporation


With over 15 years of experience managing global, national, and regional accounts, Courtney has a proven success penetrating existing accounts and building new business through prospecting. IPISC is an industry leader in Intellectual Property Insurance and we are excited to hear Courtney speak on the importance of protecting a company’s most valuable asset, their intellectual property. IP lawsuits are among the most expensive events that can affect a company’s bottom line. Without an insurance solution, many companies would not be able to afford to protect their IP, which could lead to business failure or acceptance of onerous licensing agreement terms at great detriment to long-term profitability. We have one CE credit filed for these two speakers and look forward them sharing their information, experience and inspiration.
