The theme for the 2014 SMA Summit was The Innovation Journey: cultivate – activate – accelerate. The one-of-its-kind event provided a unique occasion to address what needs attention, to explore where the opportunities lie, and to celebrate the transformation and innovation progress that is being made across the industry. SMA’s third annual Summit took the conversation about change and innovation in insurance to a whole new level. It was a fast-paced, energizing day that gave participants an exclusive opportunity to explore, experience, as well as engage in innovation.

SMA hosted the room full of insurers, solution providers, and industry influencers on September 15 at the Mandarin Oriental in Boston. The rich agenda included a variety of speakers: seasoned industry leaders, inside and outside-the-industry influencers and thought leaders, and the experts at Strategy Meets Action (SMA) as well. The day included inspiring sessions, great conversations at breaks, and a lively networking reception. It was a day that got people talking and excited about the possibilities for rethinking and reinventing to capitalize on the future.

This SMA Brief summarizes the day’s energetic and dynamic schedule and provides a recap of lessons learned and key takeaway messages from the mix of prominent speakers, panels, conversational interviews, interactive sessions, and more.
