Need for Speed

Covent Garden Hotel, London

Wednesday 19th June

18:30 – 21:30 BST

“GenAI is becoming an integral part of business ecosystems and is already a strong source of value and competitive advantage. But only 10% companies have mastered how to scale GenAI to create value.” 


– BCG, 2024

In an industry where “speed” is the new currency, insurance firms are looking to Gen AI as a game-changer. From automating claims processing, to refining risk modelling, and enhancing customer digital experiences, AI ultimately delivers better outcomes for clients. And given that 87% of customers view efficient claims processing as crucial to renewal decisions, the race is on to capitalise [Forbes, 2023].


However, the journey to becoming AI-ready is not without its challenges. Whether its establishing a robust data infrastructure for ethical AI use, integrating AI with existing legacy systems, or even navigating the tightrope of regulatory compliance, Tech leaders face a number of potential potholes. Those getting it right are already seeing a 60% increase in operational efficiency and CX satisfaction improved by 95% [Forbes, 2023]. Those that get it wrong risk losing the business of their hard-earned customers.


With speed being the ultimate competitive advantage, the productivity gains offered by AI have the potential to be truly transformative. So, how can you leverage AI to get ahead of the competition?

To offset your travel or energy usage we will plant a tree via One Tree Planted. Once mature, the average tree has a net absorption of 30 kg of CO2 per year, which equates to 227 miles of travel by car or 96 hours of office usage. You can see our maths here.
