Breakfast & Keynote
We live in a world of accelerating change today. Evidence abounds all around us: take as a single example the shift from paper maps to real-time GPS on your mobile phone that has occurred over the past decade. Insurance is not immune: long resistant to change by design, the recent rise of insurtech holds the promise of a radically different future. While entrepreneurs and technologists are seeking to change insurance from the outside, industry professionals are also seeking to shape the future from within. Come learn from innovation expert and author Rob Galbraith why we are on the cusp of the end of insurance as we know it and how investing in your professional education is the best way to prepare yourself for what’s to come.
