A Digital Native or a Traditional Player?

23/06/2021 | Online - Zoom Conferencing

The insurance industry is at a critical inflection point. Key trends are reshaping the industry, including the rise of competition from an array of insurance and noninsurance digital players and rapidly changing customer expectations.

Given the potential for improvement and the prospect of attractive returns in insurance the business-model reinvention for incumbent carriers is essential to fulfilling the imperative to grow, which ultimately delivers stakeholder value. Crucially, the industry has an opportunity to shift from a “if it’s not broke don’t fix it” approach to one of “predict and prevent” across all segments: life, commercial , reinsurance, personal insurance and brokers.

At the heart of all of this is the customer and the exceptional service that you can provide to meet their expectations and retain their business.

In this session, Sefas will be discussing the importance of keeping up with the Insurtechs of today.

Learning Objectives
By the end of the session delegates will be able to:
(1) Explain how you can build a consistent customer focused channel strategy
(2) Explain how you will be able to keep up with industry disrupters
(3) Describe how your business can work to be agile and empathetic to customer needs
