Shawn Kanungo - IBAA Convention 2019 keynote speaker: Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Experimental: The Exponential Broker

Tuesday, May 7, 9:00–10:00 a.m.

Shawn Kanungo - IBAA Convention 2019 keynote speaker: Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Experimental: The Exponential Broker The world of the broker has fundamentally changed. Competition today is unforgiving and ruthless—no one is spared. Startups, fintechs, banks, and the big technology firms are all now touting that they can deliver the same value as brokers to their clients. On the flip side, client expectations and behaviours have also changed more in the last 10 years than in the last 100 years combined.


Disruptive innovation is forcing everyone to re-imagine their clients’ experiences and business models. How do we survive? How do we disrupt ourselves as brokers before someone else does? How do we deliver better experiences to our clients? Today, we need to be bold, brave, and experimental. We can keep up only if we foster a relentless culture that promotes experimentation.


In this awe-inspiring talk, Shawn provides a bold road map for the future and introduces the concept of the Exponential Broker. He explores how we can take unexpected approaches to innovation to remain competitive and relevant.
