Please join us on Monday 6 February 2017 for the first iNED Forum of 2017

Why NEDs need to understand disruptive or enabling technology

In today's fast developing world, insurance businesses need to understand how the latest technology can help them. But can it be a hindrance too? Will it enable new processes or simply disrupt traditional ways of working? What are the challenges and opportunities offered by recent technological advances? How can the data they produce be harnessed to improve performance? The first iNED Forum of 2017 will seek to address these questions.
