We are experiencing significant change across our industry’s landscape, but today’s leaders have the power to forge the future. Forging the future involves actively shaping the world by taking deliberate actions that align with our vision and values. It means anticipating challenges and opportunities, and preparing ourselves to tackle them with creativity and resilience. Today’s leaders must identify and shape the elements in our business that will lead to success. What are these elements of change?

Several macroeconomic trends have been causing industry players to rethink their operating models. These include the challenges brought by inflation, the looming threat of a recession and the cost of living crisis, the rise in interest rates, and the resulting fluctuation in the equity markets. Leaders who continuously evaluate their business operations will ensure value creation and long-term success.

The geopolitical environment cannot be ignored, as it will influence our strategies. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its impact on energy prices, global fragmentation and the erosion of social cohesion, supply chain shocks, and changing climate agreements provide the troublesome backdrop of our current environment. Although, we can’t predict what the disruptive events will be, we can create organizations that can not only survive these events, but also thrive.

Technology trends may be the most transformational force of our time. Every aspect of our industry’s ecosystem is under pressure, whether it be pre and post sale processes, employee benefit enrollment, or customer acquisition. Traditional insurers are not sitting idly by. Instead, they are innovating and trying new things so they can compete with tech upstarts. In the near future, the fully tech-enabled insurer will bear little resemblance to today’s organization.

Difficulties recruiting and retaining talent have reached an all-time high. Perhaps the most critical aspect of our talent challenge is distribution and attracting new producers. We must do a better job of communicating our industry’s value and purpose, which are powerful motivators for younger prospects.

These and other issues will be addressed at LIMRA’s 2023 Annual Conference. Our program features thought leaders and forward-thinking executives. We will discuss key strategies in these areas of opportunities that will influence the future of our industry and the markets we serve, including: distribution, data and technology, talent imperatives, and other strategic issues within insurance, annuities, and worksite benefits.

General David H. Patraeus

Director, CIA (2011-2012); Commander of U.S. and International Security Assistance Forces-Afghanistan (2010-2011); Partner, KKR

One of the most effective military leaders in recent U.S. history, General David H. Petraeus — a highly decorated four-star general, whose distinguished military career spanned over 37 years and culminated in six straight commands (five of which were in combat) — addresses the most significant global challenges facing us today, including ongoing international security issues, macroeconomic trends and the tasks of strategic leadership in the 21st century.

Widely credited for changing the course of two wars — by dramatically reducing the violence in Iraq when he led the so-called “Surge” and by halting the Taliban’s momentum in Afghanistan when he led the operation there — Petraeus was also instrumental in reshaping American military doctrine and then in implementing it when he led the conduct of comprehensive civil-military counterinsurgency campaigns. Serving in multiple campaigns — including nearly seven years deployed following 9-11 — Petraeus has been described as one of the “great battle captains of American history.” His command during many years in combat has resulted in comparisons to Ulysses S. Grant, John J. Pershing, George C. Marshall and Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Following his military service, Petraeus led the CIA, where he oversaw significant achievements in America’s global counterterrorism campaign, pursued a substantial initiative to increase worldwide intelligence coverage, guided the development of a strategic plan for the agency and oversaw the establishment of a new Economic Security Center. Petraeus has received numerous prestigious U.S. military, State Department, NATO and United Nations awards, including four Defense Distinguished Service Medals, three Army Distinguished Service Medals, the Secretary of State Distinguished Service Medal, the Bronze Star Medal for Valor, the NATO Meritorious Service Medal and the Combat Action Badge. Additionally, he has been decorated by 13 foreign countries. Petraeus is a Partner at KKR (a global private equity firm), and currently serves as chairman of the Global Institute of KKR and a Judge Widney Professor at the University of Southern California.
