Individuals responsible for setting strategy or driving innovation and anyone concerned about the threat of disruption.

This is a LIMRA member benefit webinar. Registration is open to home/corporate office employees of LIMRA member companies. Membership will be verified upon registration.


Disruption is among today's most misused buzzwords. People frequently use it to describe innovations regardless of their impact, as well as anything that presents even a mild challenge to an organization. But disruption is more than that. Disruptors can severely impact revenue or have a crippling effect on a business or an entire industry.

What forces truly pose the greatest disruptive threats to the financial services industry? Where may they come from? What can companies and the industry in general do to guard against them?

In this webinar, we will take:

  • 5 minutes to define disruption and where it might come from
  • 10 minutes to share 10 actions you can take to fend off disruption
  • 15 minutes to answer questions and explore issues with the audience
