LAUNCHING MAY 2019
The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) and ITN Productions Industry News are producing a news and current affairs-style programme exploring the role of the modern-day insurance broker and the current issues and opportunities faced in an ever-changing and challenging risk landscape.
The UK has arguably one of the best insurance industries in the world and ‘Leading the Way’ will highlight the latest issues impacting the insurance broking sector during a time of unprecedented change as well as addressing enduring themes including the effects of regulation, innovation, Brexit, terrorism and the emerging threats of the digital age. The programme will also showcase the progress being made in the sector in respect of Diversity, Inclusion and mental health and the engagement of young brokers.
The news-style piece will be anchored by Natasha Kaplinsky to combine key interviews and reports with sponsored editorial profiles from leading organisations.
The programme will premiere at The BIBA Annual Conference on May 15th and May 16th 2019 at Manchester Central. The programme will form part of an extensive communications campaign featuring BIBA members, industry partners, government partners, as well as journalists, writers and bloggers.
Steve White, Chief Executive, BIBA said: “We are delighted to be producing a second programme with ITN Productions to showcase the work that brokers do for their customers. We were pleased with the success of the first programme and hope that the new one will provide a strong platform to promote our sector. We are also keen to provide members with high quality video content that they can use themselves to promote the benefits of insurance brokers.”
Vicki Clubley, Head of Industry News, ITN Productions, said: “This is the second year we have partnered with the British Insurance Brokers’ Association to produce a programme showcasing the breadth and depth of the latest work carried out in the insurance industry, the crucial role insurance brokers play within the industry and the risks and opportunities faced in an ever-changing landscape. We’re looking forward to engaging with professionals throughout the sector and beyond to replicate the success of last year’s programme. ‘Leading the Way’ aims to share best practise, inspire innovation and help realise the tremendous opportunities ahead for the BIBA.”
