Future of Insurance Industry - and re-insurance risks - summary of recent insurance keynote

* Patrick Dixon has advised many of the world's largest insurance companies on global trends, opportunities, customer behaviour, fund management strategies and risk management.

Insurance is as fundamental to a stable and prosperous society as banking, hospitals and schools. Yet more than 3 billion people have never heard of insurance, do not know how it works, and have no idea how to get hold of it.

Expect rapid growth, therefore, of basic insurance in emerging markets, targeted mainly at the emerging middle class. Health insurance will lead the way, after insurance types that people are forced by law to buy, such as motor insurance. Expect a boost in many nations in sales of life or health products from tax rebates, especially where they are structured to contain an element of saving. Many who are unbanked today will gain their first insurance cover using a smartphone, or through micro-loans associations.  Extract from The Future of Almost Everything....

Why so many CEOs of global companies rely on Futurist speakers at their most important internal or client events. How Futurist Speakers help drive change, build vision, sharpen strategy, encourage growth and innovation

Why so many global CEOs rely on Futurist speakers to give keynotes at their most important events. As a professional Futurist speaker and author, I have given keynotes at over 1000 major corporate events for huge corporations over the last two decades. I often go on stage right after the CEO’s own speech, at the start of these conference. Few great CEOs are also great visionary communicators, able to transform large audiences in an entertaining and mind-changing way. Even if they are most CEOs recognize the importance of external validation when presenting strategies to their own teams. They know how powerful it is when an expert from outside the company confirms how right their strategy is, amplifying their own key messages. That‘s also why companies like Google, Microsoft, Siemens or Phillips invite independent Futurist speakers like me to give keynotes at their most important global client events.

Truth about Blockchain and BitCoins – impact of Blockchain on your industry, business and wider world. BitCoin and other cryptocurrencies - keynote comment

I have advised hundreds of the world’s largest corporations on digital trends, and one of the biggest that CEOs and boards are now talking about is Blockchain. What is Blockchain and what does it mean for us?  Could Blockchain wipe out our business, or will Blockchain help us grow? Here is a comment after my recent keynote for the global team of Generali Insurance, on Blockchain.

Blockchain means that anyone in the world with online access can prove a particular document exists, when it was sent, who it was sent to and so on.  We can also prove that an event has taken place, in a way which is fully transparent to everyone who needs to know this around the world. The implications of this are going to be huge.  And it will be many years before we work it all out.

How to spot Fake Forecasts, Bad Analysts and False Futurists - secret of more accurate forecasting and of all great Futurist speakers. Shocking truth about easily avoidable Futurist errors

It is often said that no one can predict the future, but the truth is that forecasting is far easier than you may think, because many things change more slowly than media hype suggests.  I know this from advising hundreds of the world's largest corporations on the impact of key industry megatrends, for more than 20 years, and from writing many books about the future since 1987.  I’m not talking about share prices, commodity prices or currency rates.  Anything to do with markets is as difficult to predict two months ahead as the British weather. Every now and again in history there is a genuine step-change, for example the collapse of communism, or a global war, or the creation of the web, but such things are rare.  That’s why most board room debates about the future are not usually about direction of a trend, which tends to be fairly obvious, but about timing or speed of that trend. Judge me on my own record - content on this website goes back to 1996.


Here's what I wrote a while back for Wired Magazine (adapted)...

The truth about North Korea, President Trump, the real risk of war, and why options for the Pentagon and rest of world are so limited. What is likely to happen next.

Despite all the hot words from President Trump and some of the absurd commentary in the media, here is the truth about North Korea’s rapid military direction and about the complete impotence of the rest of the world.  And all taking place at a time when there are more geopolitical risks globally than for 30 years.

The fact is, that as we see every day in the failed state of Zimbabwe, or Afghanistan or more recently in the chaos of Venezuela, or in Syria or Iraq, the most powerful military forces in the world can be humbled and humiliated by the resilience and complexity of the tiniest of nations, however chaotic or weak they may appear to be.
