I’m sure I could have found something a little more festive but I stumbled across this and thought it worth a share:

Welcome to Open Innovation
Over the past few years we’ve published a pile of trends reports. All of these to date have focused on trends we’re seeing hit the mainstream – from Hyper-personalisation and Artificial Intelligence, to how insurance companies are shifting their innovation strategies to buy, partner, build models.

This time, we’ve launched a report on a trend that most of you won’t have heard of, let alone be across…just yet – Open Insurance.

To learn more about it, what it means to your business and the companies already embracing Open Insurance, have a read. Oh, and it’s FREE so there’s really no excuse (aside from the mountain of work you need to get through before the season of turkey and mince pie eating hits).

Insurtech 100 2019
It’s official, we’ll be working with the Insurance Post again next year to publish the Insurtech 100.

This time, it’ll be bigger and better than ever. What exactly that means, I’m not too sure yet other than we’ve collectively come up with a bunch of ideas, mostly bad ones, although a couple of belters too.

If you’re a reading this, working in a great big insurance company with enormously deep marketing pockets, give us a shout. We’re exploring ways we can involve sponsorship through a 12-month programme of high profile activities.

If you’re reading this and you’re working in an Insurtech (and/or adjacency) and think your inclusion is a must, drop us a line. We’ll already be tracking you through Sønr but if you have any top-secret exclusives you think will help your case, let us know.

For the latest 2018 update, have a read here.

Vitality. A breath of fresh air.
Last week we were invited by Vitality to run part of their Health Insurtech Conference. 190 people from across the business, 2 hours to come up with a bunch of new ideas and 1 GREAT BIG trophy. What more could you possibly want?

I didn’t know Vitality particularly well before a few weeks ago; spending time with their leadership pulling the event together, and their team on the day, I can’t stress enough just what an amazing company they are. I found them ALL to be incredibly generous, passionate about making a difference to both customers and business alike, and fully committed to driving the business forward.

Unsurprisingly, a great day was had – some incredible ideas unearthed and a reminder of the latent creative talent that too often lies untouched within big business.

In the words of Michael Bublé, or was it Meredith Wilson, it’s beginning to look [a lot] like Christmas. And as my gift to you I’ll keep this one short.

To all those working over the Christmas break, don’t forget we’re recruiting:

Have a great break all. Until 2019.
