Morning Welcome & Registration

Inside the Boardroom: Sit in with the Digital Leaders


Insurance Post creates its own insurance boardroom, enabling you to get involved with the discussions around digital implementation in incumbents. Question those leading this change to find out what you can learn from their experiences to move you closer to achieving agility.


  • Examine how large insurers are organising themselves around the InsurTech space. Determine how their agile culture can be successfully expanded throughout your business, and explore why this will benefit you.
  • What are the main barriers faced when it comes to implementation? How is this being approached outside of the sector, and what can you learn to overcome your own challenges?
  • Discuss where innovation efforts are being focussed, and consider how high this stands in the priorities list. Explore how other insurers are approaching the digital revolution, and consider how ignoring this could impact your business.
  • Compare the C-suite roles and explore the differing responsibilities in the drive for innovation. Examine alternative implementation models to see how you can make improve the innovative culture in your business.
  • With reinsurers working directly with start-ups, discuss this increased investment as a sign for an industry-wide reshuffle.
  • Do we have a gender problem in the sector? What can we do as an industry to tackle the lack of diversity? Identify the benefits of a diverse work culture, and the benefits associated with this.
  • Examine the likely impacts of Brexit on the work culture in UK offices, and consider the repercussions which could be facing your business.
