*** Latest Update ***Event Postponed***

Tuesday 24 September: We regret to announce that we have just been informed that our speaker has had to postpone this talk. We will rearrange it as soon as we can and hope that all those who booked will be able to attend the new date.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this news.

New technologies have been the “Uber” of business models, with new entrants regularly displacing established industry incumbents using models that existing players cannot compete against.

InsurTech is a batch of new entrants that are planning to fundamentally change the insurance industry by either displacing existing insurance companies, or by working with them for mutual benefit.

Having such a potential impact, we are delighted to welcome Sumit Sethi, Director of Sum It Consultancy to speak to us. During this free one-hour CPD seminar, Sumit will focus on Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning as he uncovers

  • what these technologies are

  • when they were created

  • where they are being utilised

Sumit will also explore how these start-ups are transitioning into the insurance industry and which are the ones to look out for.

Online Booking
Open to all members and their guests, this event will be of general interest to everyone as InsurTech is likely to impact all areas of the insurance industry.

  • understand how these technologies have advanced since being developed

  • cite the interdependent technologies that have propelled AI into businesses

  • identify the current and future applications of these technologies

  • recognise the main InsurTechs in this space and their value propositions
