The Insurance Network and BAE Systems Applied Intelligence cordially invite you to an evening of discussion on the data challenges facing insurance, followed by dinner.
Taking place in the private dining rooms at the top of the Gherkin this exclusive evening event features two presentations exploring the practical challenges of maximising your data to enable digital transformation to set up a group discussion allowing you to explore best practice with your peers.
Following the presentations, the conversation continues more informally over a 3-course dinner.
Data presents society at large with some of the most fundamental challenges and opportunities and is driving change in all sectors, including insurance. Data is at the heart of digital transformation – having the right data opens the door to AI, RPA, IoT and beyond. But insurers have traditionally struggled with multiple data sets sitting on a myriad of legacy systems - creating challenges for systems and processes that increasingly need to be reimagined and re-engineered.
Tim Yorke, Transformation Director at AXA, will explore the practical challenges in maximising your data to enable digital transformation - and share some common pitfalls to be avoided – to set up a group discussion allowing you to explore best practice with your peers. This knowledge share will then continue more informally over a 3-course dinner hosted by BAE Systems Applied Intelligence.

6.15pm - Introduction by the chair

Data is our greatest asset, our greatest exposure, and our greatest responsibility. The exploitation of social media to undermine democracy with fake news calls into question our trust relationship with data.
At the same time, investment in AI, Machine Learning and Robotic Process Automation is transforming insurance against the backdrop of fundamental changes to data privacy law, practice and consumer expectation. Chris examines these challenges and the implications for the insurance sector.

The location and food was excellent, and the discussions with other peers resonated with challenges we're facing. I also liked the fact the sponsor didn't do a hard sell on their products and services."

"I really enjoyed the event this morning, a number of 'tracks' were very thought provoking - its especially good to be able to feel comfortable.... to be able to set questions running in the group where one genuinely doesn't have an answer but see how others might tackle it or what they are thinking.. great stuff, would like to see much more on this subject."

Head of Change & Transformation, Aviva
"Provided a perfect opportunity for senior colleagues and competitors to share their issues and how they were resolved or mitigated. Outcome is there is: there is no perfect solution, and reliance predominantly should be on our own staff and the technology is the enabler, and shouldn't be the taskmaster."
Chief Operating Officer, Axis Capital
