The digital insurance market of the future is here today

27/05/2021 | Online - Zoom Conferencing

Research from McKinsey shows how the Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically accelerated technology adaption in businesses, suggesting that the change to remote working happened 40x faster than pre-pandemic assumptions.

The insurance market traditionally has relied on relationships and close contact, a year on from lockdown and our working practices have changed almost beyond recognition, but there’s far more to the future of the insurance market than simply business-as-usual and working from home. Successful businesses are those that have adapted to digital working practices, embraced technology and empowered their workforce.

Faced with new business models, demand for smarter profitable products and changes in both operational culture and customer behaviours how can you digitise your business to stand out from the crowd and bounce back post covid to become a better version of yourself?

Organisations need to operate more collaboratively, bringing the best experience, creativity and talent to solve today’s challenges. Such as how do you really position your business to take advantage of new digital techniques to empower both your system thinking and marketing campaigns?

Working with the team at digital change consultancy Cognitive Risk, Brandex will help you understand how to plan creative and connected solutions – to ensure you join up the digital dots in a post lockdown world.

Learning Objectives:

  • What will digitising my business do to improve it?
  • How to improve the customer experience.
  • How to tell your marketing story in the digital realm.
  • How technology will drive your business forward.
