Coming together to drive the digital revolution in our industry

Friday 1st December 2017


Morning Welcome & Registration

Start your morning networking with your fellow disrupters. Catch up with old friends and discuss the year's activity in the digital insurance space.


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? What can you do to ensure there is a smooth transition between touch-points and across organisational silos in the customer journey?
  • 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 (e.g. chatbots, internet of things, biometrics), and consider how ignoring this could impact your business.
  • How can you ensure that both staff and customers are benefiting from digital innovation efforts? Are there benefits to be had, in terms of efficiency, decision making quality and perhaps even customer experience, by improving our staff-facing digital tools?
  • 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.

Coffee break and networking


Value Proposition Design Workshop: Building digital propositions, with users front & centrerma-logo


This interactive workshop focuses on how to take a user-centred approach to identifying and framing digital initiatives.

RMA will kick things off with an overview of their robust end-to-end methodology, illustrating how you can isolate key challenges for your business and work towards a well validated, customer-centric proposition. In this session we will explore a number of techniques you can introduce to your business, including:

  • Experience Maps - a collaboratively produced visual which shows the key steps in multi-touchpoint customer journeys, the pain points and opportunities.
  • Value Proposition Design as a customer-centric way to frame solutions.
  • Rapid iterative prototyping with user feedback as a way to ensure your solutions are exhibiting the desired impacts before implementing them on a larger scale.

We'll be doing a deep dive into the Value Proposition Canvas technique, in a highly interactive and practical session. You'll come away, able to use the Value Proposition Canvas to rapidly detail and evaluate different potential propositions.

Mischa Weiss-Lijn, head of experience design, RMA Consulting
