Interested in finding out what digital means in the insurance sector?  Want to know how tech can disrupt a traditional and risk averse industry?

Join us on 29 Oct for a morning of talks and interactive sessions looking at the digital side of insurance.

Our CTIO Graeme Howard will set the scene for Covea Digital; what’s different about digital in the insurance market and how are we changing our approach?
David Prien, CEO and founder of FirstVet, Europe’s largest veterinary telemedicine provider, will be talking with Tracey Smith about digital disruptors in the insurance space and how FirstVet and Covea worked in partnership during lockdown to help keep the nation’s pets in rude health!
Hear from Caroline Parnell, former head of new product innovation at O2 on disruptive practices in the mobile sector and how lean start up and design techniques were used in telecoms and could be applied in insurance.

We’ll also have breakout sessions on disruptive engineering, an introduction to insurtech, data science in insurance, and User Experience for the insurtech sector
