With its theme, Navigating the Road to the New Normal, Insurance Consciousness week 2022, began with a pre-launch activity with friends from the industry, joining a public rosary crusade held at a park in Makati City.
On Day 1 and with the formal start of ICW, a holy mass was celebrated, part in thanks for the past blessings and successes received by the industry and in supplication for guidance for the future. Fr. Douglas, in his sermon, spoke how insurance ensures protection for our worldly possessions, as the practice of our faith ensures protection for our souls. The much-awaited salu-salo followed right after the mass, starting with the usual speeches from heads of the organizing associations: the Philippine Insurance Club or PIC, the Insurance Institute for Asia and the Pacific or IIAP and of course, the Philippine Insurers and Reinsurers Association or PIRA.A common message resonated among the speakers with resounding optimism: the insurance industry will embrace and adapt to change to sustain its growth and fulfill its role to society.
Day 2 saw the first of the free webinars for ICW. Dr. Zeno Udani shared an inspiring talk on Gratitude and Grateful Leadership.
Day 3 was an open invitation to the ongoing Philippine Fintech Festival, with special focus on innovative insurance solutions using technology. Top insurance leaders from the private sector and govt were among the guest speakers for the event.
Day 4 offered another free webinar held in collaboration with members of Arise Philippines on the Importance of Insurance in the light of Climate Change. Mitch Rellosa and Melinda Natividad engaged over 100 attendees on the alarming effects of climate change and the role of insurance in risk mitigation and protection.
Capping the 5th day was a webinar with Sandy Reyes expounding on the need and benefits of Cyber Insurance which will soon be available in the local market.

Thank you, see you next year!
