My strategy consulting company, The McGrigor Corporation, was commissioned by a global health Insurance company to look at the potential opportunity for launching an international health insurance product in South Korea. We contracted with Hyokon and Innomove to look at the reactions of several insurance sales agents and intermediaries to the potential product design. In a separate project we asked Hyokon to look at the expat and inpat markets in the accident and health insurance field. In both cases Hyokon’s work was professional and crisply on message. He was particularly impressive in getting together good contacts at short notice.
