Group insurance is at the precipice. Make no mistake, the very survival of insurance in super is under threat. We must innovate to thrive – we must disrupt ourselves or be disrupted.

To address these critical issues and provide pragmatic, actionable learning, we have carefully curated a comprehensive program of international and local speakers. Utilising different formats including presentations, case studies, panel discussions and group workshops, we will cover topics such as:
• What does disruption look like – an international case study.
• Does future success lie in digitisation and automation?
• Where and how is machine learning successfully deployed?
• Will today’s premiums sufficiently cover tomorrow’s claims?
• Data transformation – a best-practice case study.
• How should super respond to the rising mental health crisis?

This event is designed for superannuation fund trustees, C-suite executives, compliance and risk executives, operational heads and managers, as well as group insurance experts.
