CIP Society Symposium 2017
For over a decade, the CIP Society Symposium has been an annual industry highlight for GTA’s insurance professionals – providing a full day of professional and leadership development and networking opportunities with insurance and business leaders.
This year’s GTA event, to be held on April 6, has the following theme: “The Change Imperative.” Sessions include “Evolving Consumer Preferences: Changing Your Approach to Stay Competitive,” which will examine the changing consumer experience through the lens of digital psychology; “Breaking the Rules: Differentiating for Success,” featuring presenters whose companies have gone the non-traditional route discussing what strategies have worked and what has surprised them; and, “Sharing Economy: Implications for the Insurance Industry in Canada,” featuring the conclusions and recommendations from the Institute’s forthcoming Emerging Issues Research report.
The success of GTA’s Symposium has encouraged other institutes and chapters to organize their own local versions of the event. Forum BC 2017 is taking place in Burnaby on March 14 with the theme “Western Exposures: Earth. Wind. Fire.” and will include sessions on earthquake exposure, drone use in claims handling and lessons learned from Fort McMurray.
Symposium events are also taking place in Northern Alberta on March 22 (theme: “Insurance in the 21st Century – Shaping our Future”), and in Cambridge, Ontario on August 16 (theme: "The Future is Here). For more information about individual events, please visit local institute and chapter pages.
