  • Gino Borromeo, VP & Chief Strategy Officer - McCann Worldgroup Philippines
DESCRIPTION: “The Truth About Youth” is a worldwide study conducted by McCann Truth Central, McCann Worldgroup’s global intelligence unit. The large-scale study surveyed more than 33,000 people of all ages in 18 countries, including U.S., China, Brazil, India, Mexico, Japan, France, Hong Kong, Philippines... The analysis included breakouts that showed and analyzed differences within nationalities and globally between people aged 16-20 (the emerging Gen Z cohort people aged 2-20), 21-34 (millennials), 35-50, 51-69 and 70+ years old. Despite the fast-moving world of social media and communication, it’s reassuring to find that there are three enduring human truths about being young that are as true today as they ever were. While so many deep human truths are consistent over time, the way we express these truths is transforming at breakneck speed. Companies need to understand what’s important to millennials to better attract and retain them. Unlike previous generations, millennials are motivated by “softer” aspects of the workplace - culture, the people they work with and a desire to do work that is meaningful.

Overcoming the Business Interruption Insurance Challenge

With average large BI property insurance claims now exceeding USD$2.2m and accounting for a much higher proportion of the direct loss, it is a top concern for risk and insurance professionals across Asia Pacific.

However, there are a number of challenges that organisations face when purchasing their BI cover, such as getting the values right, calculating the gross profit, identifying the indemnity period, coverage for wide area damage, ensuring adequate supply chain protection and avoiding lengthy claims settlement processes and disputes.

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions invites PARIMA members to join this highly engaging session to understand how they can overcome challenges in establishing their BI cover. Attendees will work through a number of exercises to help them get a better understanding of BI insurance and how to design an insurance programme that delivers claims certainty. This fun and interactive workshop is designed for attendees who want to develop a better understanding of their own BI exposure and learn how to mitigate the risks.
