Build the Agility to Exceed Customer Demands and Survive Future Disruption

Day Zero


16:00
C-Suite Boardroom Workshop – Invitation Only
Successfully Placing Strategic Bets given Rapid Technological Disruption: Navigate your way through a sea of disruptive technology in an era of tightening budgets.

A renewed focus on expense ratios and carrier profitability appears to be at odds with a mandate to evolve legacy platforms to leverage innovative and disruptive technologies.

Products commoditization, increased competition and new entrants to the market are creating additional pressure to legacy carriers.

There’s no time to lose in addressing these challenges.

This interactive workshop will provide C-suite executives with the exclusive opportunity to network with their peers and develop a roadmap and options to help chart their way through the uncertainty.
