Rise of the Drones

The future is here. Drones, or “Unmanned Aircraft Systems”, are already affecting Canada’s insurance industry with dramatic implications. The use of drones is becoming increasingly commonplace as companies across a variety of industries take advantage of the many opportunities for cost saving and risk mitigation.

Meanwhile, the insurance industry is also getting ready to utilize drones, both to test the risks involved with their customers from an underwriting point of view, and also for their own claims evaluation – particularly after catastrophic events.

We are pleased to announce that Kate Browne, Senior Vice President and Claims Counsel, Swiss Re, will speak at the 2015 Annual Lowes Fund Breakfast. Drawing from her vast experience with drone technologies, she will explain drone terminology and discuss its biggest impacts – both now and for the future. You’ll find out all about the security and privacy concerns associated with drones, and how Canada fits into the drone race as compared to the US. You’ll also learn about Transport Canada’s rules for drone use and its impact in the mining and energy industry.

Join us at The National Club in Toronto on October 28, 2015 as we also recognize the 2015 recipients of the John E Lowes and Toronto Insurance Conference Scholarships. It is a great opportunity to celebrate, network and learn.

8 am – 9:45 am
Individual ticket – $100
Table of ten – $900

Proceeds of the breakfast seminar will go to the John E. Lowes Insurance Education Fund. The fund awards financial assistance to students completing a post-secondary education, including property and casualty insurance studies. Please visit our website for more information on the John E. Lowes Insurance Education Fund.
