CEO Perspectives with Meg Green
The concept is simple: lessons in leadership from global insurance executives.
Against a background of climate change, an uneven global recovery, sociopolitical unrest and post-pandemic problems, industry leaders also face big challenges on both sides of the balance sheet, for example around cyber security and other emerging risks, as well as rising inflation and volatile markets.
With the advance of digitization, new tools and business models are disrupting the traditional insurance value chain, bringing pressure on businesses to differentiate themselves. A dynamic M&A market is testing companies’ ability to attract and retain the best talent.
In conversation with Insider Engage managing editor Meg Green, CEOs will share how their career path led them to where they are today, how they have navigated past challenges and how this experience has equipped them to meet the challenges and risks their organisations face today.
