Former Apple creative director will be the keynote speaker

Steve Jobs’s former right hand man will be the keynote speaker at the first Insurance Times Innovation and Disruption Conference (IDC) 2015.

Held on 28 April at the Marriott Grosvenor Square London, the IDC will see Ken Segall, the former creative director of Apple, tell an audience of insurers and brokers about his time working alongside Jobs for 12 years.

Insurance Times editor Saxon East said: “This is a new type of event for our market that we’ve developed in response to feedback from senior insurer and broker professionals. 

“They told us: ‘Bring the experts on customer, disruption and innovation into the room with us to refresh our thinking, challenge our assumptions and re-energise our own determination to be customer-focused and relevant in today’s digitalised world. And get their reflections on insurance, too’. This is why the theme of our first Innovation and Disruption Conference is ‘Redefining the Customer Landscape’.”

Other speakers at the full-day event include Jonathan Haines, head of finance vertical, Yahoo; Pasa Mustafa, chief strategy officer, Yonder and Beyond; and Matt Robinson, founder, Go Cardless.

Insurers and brokers are invited to secure their place at the IDC before 1 February to enjoy an early bird discount rate of £395 (regular price £499).
