Keynote Address

Insurance 2025 - Designing and Building the Future

Speaker: David Smith - Chief Executive, Global Futures and Foresight

We are witnessing a shift in the traditional ‘innovation’ model influenced by two drivers of change -- the rising servicization of products and the primacy of the consumer experience. As a result, digital platforms are becoming the tools of choice for building next-generation products and services around consumer experience and scaling entire ecosystems in the digital and physical worlds. Such platforms will be transformational for companies and blur industry boundaries as these platforms reshape industries into interconnected ecosystems.

Such blurring will necessitate the design of truly customer-centric products and services, as well as a new organizational approach ... A new design-driven paradigm is necessary and very different from traditional innovation and R&D. In the age of business agility and shifting consumer demand, it is no coincidence that design-driven companies have outperformed the S&P 500 by 219% over the 2005-2015 decade.

Innovation and design – along with data - will become strategically aligned to the core values and vision of an organization. Designing business and organization models that allow this will become a pre-requisite for success. To assume that new technologies, processes and ways of thinking can be grafted onto legacy structures is a damaging fallacy. This redesign must be holistic – encompassing back and front ends, and oriented towards employees just as much as consumers.

Hear from David Smith, a globally recognized futurist and innovation leader on what this means for Insurance. How will insurance business models need to change? What is the role of platforms? What characteristics do you need in leaders to make this shift? How fast is the shift occurring? How do you plan and execute this shift?

Breakout Sessions

The Customer Journey: Best Practices and Pitfalls

Speakers: Ron Zarrella - NYL, Sue Blanco - Rider Insurance, Michael Montecuollo - Door3, Terry Buechner - Majesco

Many insurers take a tactical approach to digital strategy and investments, focusing on discrete capabilities rather than taking a business need-driven approach. To make matters worse, the capabilities invested in are too often based on internal stakeholders’ views rather than the external “customer” – the classic “inside-out” approach (aka, “build it and they will come”). The more effective approach is to deeply understand your customers by mapping their interaction journey across the value chain. This is the “outside-in” approach that will shape the digital strategy and priorities. Hear from these companies on their approach and the impact.

The Renaissance Man: Inspiring the Possibilities

Dr. Ronan Tynan - Internationally Acclaimed Irish Tenor, Medical Doctor and Paralympian

He is called a modern day “Renaissance Man.” Irish tenor, recording artist, physician, and champion disabled athlete Ronan Tynan moves audiences like few others can. His stirring performances and personal story of triumph have brought him international fame. The New York Times called him “the closest thing this country has to an official meistersinger.”Ronan is one of the most sought after motivational speakers in the U.S., presenting nearly 50 speeches annually for major international corporations and organizations.

Tynan has performed at historic events including Ronald Reagan’s funeral and the Inaugural Prayer Service at the National Cathedral. His memorable renditions of “God Bless America” have been heard at the World Series, The Belmont Stakes, and other momentous events.Profiled by ABC’s 20/20, People magazine and CBS Sunday Morning, Tynan was born with a lower limb disability and had his legs amputated at age 20. Within a year, he was competing in the Paralympic Games, both in track and field and as an equestrian. He won 18 gold medals and set 14 world records, nine of which are still in place today.

In 1992 less than one year after he began studying music, Tynan won the John McCormack Cup for Tenor Voice. He shot to stardom two years later after winning the BBC talent show, Go For It. A recording contract with Sony Music and sold-out concerts around the world soon followed. His debut album, My Life Belongs to You, released in 1998, jumped to number five on the charts. That same year, Tynan joined Anthony Kearns and John McDermott as The Irish Tenors, an instant worldwide sensation.

A D3 Data Strategy: Data Models, Data Warehouses and Data Lakes

Speakers: Ben Moreland - Majesco, Kris Moniz - Majesco

Data and analytics consistently rank in the top 3 priority areas of insurance … yet insurers struggle to define a way forward. As data and analytics become an increasingly strategic competitive differentiator, insurers need a path to accelerate their data mastery maturity to achieve business differentiation and optimization through data. Yet insurers struggle with truly leveraging enterprise level data due to inaccessible data formats, a lack of trust in the underlying data quality, inconsistent semantics, and an implementation methodology that doesn’t align with today’s fast paced and disruptive market. Insurance specific data solutions can provide capabilities across all areas of insurance from policy, billing, claims and distribution to gain control over compliance and governance needs. Leveraging proven and robust data models and enterprise data warehouse solutions provides insurers with a significant lift. Moreover, the flexibility that Hadoop based solutions bring to the fore lets your data journey be as agile as your business.

Hear from this powerful panel of data mastery experts on how you can simplify and power your data mastery journey and gain competitive differentiation.

Panel Session

Leading the Market Shift: A C-Suite View

Speakers: Ed Ossie - Majesco, John Rooney - Shelter Insurance, Craig Welsh - Westfield

The business models of the past 50+ years (based on the business assumptions, products, processes, and channels of the Silent and Baby Boomer generations) will soon be an ocean away from the business models of the next generation, including the Millennials and Gen Z, as well as many in Gen X, both as personal buyers and owners of businesses. It requires a new business paradigm. We must redefine and re-envision insurance, embracing business components that work in the new context of people, technology and market boundaries and discarding the pieces that are outmoded or irrelevant. Most organizations can’t simply flip off their pre digital switch (traditional business model and products administered on traditional systems) and flip on their digital age model (new services and products on modern, flexible systems that will handle digital integration and better data acquisition and analysis). So, the shift will require steps. Those steps will operate as both a bridge and a proving ground, while the traditional system is still operational as a firm foundation and the new foundation is being constructed. The steps are active, ongoing, and they overlap. Hear from this panel of executives on how they are leading the market shift.

Speaker: Kirk Martell - Corporate Systems Leader at Westfield, Jerry Bogle - State Farm, Charlene Aldrich - Underwriting Supervisor Shelter Insurance Company, Tom Duffy - Majesco
