WEBINAR: The Impact of COVID19: Considerations for Recovery

18/06/2020 | Webinar

Join the panel of Sara Ager, Sam White and Peter Goodman for this interactive webinar.

Much focus is being given to the impact of Covid19 on insurers. This panel will recap on how the Insurance Industry has reacted to the Pandemic and will look beyond insurers to see what the impact of Covid19 may be for MGAs.

The panel will discuss the current position of MGAs as we see relaxing of COVID19 restrictions. They will talk about the “new normal” and will cover the increased expectations of consumers and why customer experience is going to be key in recovery.

Learning Objectives
By the end of the session delegates will:
1.    Understand some of the less obvious implications of the current pandemic on the industry
2.    Be aware of the new types of technology that are expected by customers in the New Normal
3.    Understand why customer-experience is key for MGAs and how customer confidence is essential as the business recovers.
4.    Have heard several views on COVID19 recovery and practical solutions to support digitisation.
