Swiss Re Workshop for Leaders of Tomorrow - 46th St. Gallen Symposium

02 Jun 2016

Young global professionals met with Swiss Re to engage with the topic of digital disruption and economic growth.

The topic of this year's St. Gallen Symposium was Economic Growth: The good, the bad and the ugly. As a main partner of the St Gallen Symposium, supporting, in particular, the essay writing competition, the St. Gallen Wings of Excellence Award - from which the Leaders of Tomorrow are selected - Swiss Re hosted a group of young professionals at its headquarters to gain an understanding of their view on developments relevant to the insurance industry.

We discussed their views about digital disruption and economic growth: how do industries like manufacturing, transport, insurance, health become disrupted and which strategies might be available for incumbents to respond to the challenge? Take a look at the video below for an overview of the day.

Swiss Re has been a partner of the St. Gallen Symposium for more than 10 years, during which time we have engaged with around 800 young leaders at Swiss Re and introduced them to the world of reinsurance.
