Laurence Smith, the CII’s Regional Director for Africa, was invited to provide a session on the topic of ‘Positioning Yourself for the Future of Insurance’. In his presentation, Mr Smith reviewed some of the key insurance trends that are expected to dominate during the 2020s, and shared examples of how leading companies around Africa, India, the Middle East and AsiaPac are addressing the challenges. He also spoke about some of the exciting technology-led innovations which are helping to widen insurance access and increase penetration.
The session was introduced by Mr Babajide Adejumo, AIICO HR Transformation Lead, who, alongside the Learning & Development Team has been responsible for the success of the entire Learning Week programme. The CII expresses its thanks to AIICO and Oluyemi Obakin the Head of Human Resources for making this opportunity available.
