  • Achieving growth, innovation and sustainability through benefits modernization
  • Managing costs and investing for resilience in uncertain times
  • Harnessing AI and Cyber to contain risk and create opportunities

What to expect from the day:

  • Global networking: connecting you with health, benefits and risk peers to share experiences and ideas
  • Engaging keynotes and real-life insights: from visionaries and global thought leaders
  • Panel discussions, innovations and ideas: best-practice sharing and case studies
