ANZIIF’s annual General Insurance Breakfast is back. We will be joined by a panel of industry leaders who will reflect on the past year and contemplate the future of the general insurance industry.

Attracting a wide range of attendees from across the Australian general insurance industry, this event is an ideal chance to celebrate successes from the past year, discuss opportunities and challenges with industry peers, engage with thought leaders, and open the door to new business opportunities.

This year, the event will be adapted to a hybrid format. Join us at the Fullerton, Sydney or live online — the choice is yours.

The General Insurance Breakfast is conducted under Chatham House Rule to promote the open sharing of ideas and information.
