In search of security

How demographic and social change is creating a market for life insurance with Bernard Salt

There’s no denying, coronavirus has altered the way we think and behave.

Join us for this compelling session where Bernard Salt argues that everything is being reassessed and viewed through the prism of security: financial, family, personal. It’s almost as if the pandemic has been our control-alt-delete moment as we reassess where we’re at in life.

Life insurance demographics and the pandemic are all merged in Bernard’s unique take on where we’re at and where we’re headed in the post-Covid 2020s.

Responding to the trends

Engaging with the new consumers with Mark McCrindle

The insurance market is being impacted by a generation delaying asset ownership, a rent-it rather than buy-it mindset, a rising expectation of the role of government and the safety-net syndrome.

In this not to be missed session, Mark will give you an overview of the new segments of households, the expectations of the emerging generations, and how to effectively engage with them.

Expect to gain research-based insights into the emerging customer opportunities, how to communicate in message-saturated times, and how to retain and lead the new generation.

Life can change in the blink of an eye

with Sam Bloom

Sam had everything she had always dreamed of, then without warning, the dream turned into a nightmare.

While on a 2013 family holiday in Thailand, Sam fell 6m from a balcony leaving her completely paralysed from the chest down. Broken and hopeless, Sam reached her outer limits of physical and mental suffering. But with courage, determination, and a little help from an unlikely feathered friend, she made her way back from the edge.

Her message – never, ever give up.

In this powerful session, Sam will share her story from the lows of a devastating injury to the highs of competing for Australia and inspiring a Hollywood film.

Meet Sam Bloom

Sam Bloom is a bestselling author, global keynote speaker, 2 x World Para Surfing champion and inspiration behind global hit movie Penguin Bloom.
