FIA COVER Short-Term Broking Summit set to be the biggest intermediary event of 2016

FIAThe 2016 FIA COVER Short-Term Insurance Broking Summit, which takes place on 18 April at the Sandton Convention Centre, promises to be the highlight of the intermediary calendar in 2016.

The list of speakers and panellists reads like a who’s-who in the short-term insurance industry: Paolo Cavalieri of iTOO, Gideon Galloway of King Price Insurance, Christelle Colman of MUA, Adrian Gore of Discovery, Luke McKend of Google SA and Nick Binedell of GIBS Business School, to name but a few. Download the full FIA COVER Summit programme here.

CN&CO’s Carel Nolte will be emceeing the event, which is expected to attract more than 800 high-level insurance delegates from across the country.

“The theme of the event BROKER–INNOVATOR–DISRUPTOR says it all,” he says. “Having worked closely with many insurance companies and intermediaries ourselves, we are well aware of the trends in the industry, particularly the rise of innovation as a major disruptive force.”

Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing.

“On the contrary!” says Carel. “A regular kick in the pants is exactly what our industry needs in order to remain relevant, competitive, exciting and forward-moving.”

It’s good to see so many of CN&CO’s clients on the agenda, including iTOO, MUA and Lombard, which is one of the headline sponsors of the event.

“After only seven months in business, CN&CO has built up an enviable client base in the financial services sector in South Africa,” says Carel. “It will be great to see speakers, sponsors and delegates who we work with on a regular basis, as well as reconnect with old friends and make a few new ones too!”
