Content & Conversation: The Incredible Curious Adventure

A stakeholder inquiry & documentary exploring the future of the insurance industry

In April 2016, Sugarbird Studios together with Gen Re, an international reinsurer, embarked on an Incredible Curious Adventure! We sought out and spoke to insurance industry leaders, futurists, digital specialists, brand experts and fintech players. We asked them about the future and captured their thinking on film. What we produced, as a result, is a powerful and thought provoking documentary. Launched to rave reviews on 18 August 2016, this documentary disrupts our worldview and presents a fresh perspective of the future already in our midst. Watch the documentary here.

What is most exciting, is the new conversation this documentary is inspiring in the insurance industry with fintech’s joining in. The narrative, a story of a future in our midst and on the horizon, has proven to be energising and helpful as a thinking framework and has very quickly created shared understanding for conversations for change and innovation to take root.

The message is clear: It’s time to shift how we frame and look at the world, how we do business, how we innovate, the problems we solve and how we solve them.

The Incredible Curious Global Adventure debuts

In March 2017 we set out on another incredible curious adventure - this time around the world, speaking to and filming some 70 leaders of thought and industry. In August this 2017, we had the opportunity to debut the documentary at the Gen Re Annual Conference.

The documentary and &PLIFY experience blows minds

The Gen Re Annual Conference vividly explored the exponential world we live in today and what it now takes to be future ready, future fit. “&PLIFY your world” and the new power of convergence came alive through talks, installations, performance pieces and the debut screening of the ICA Global documentary. Feedback from Gen Re clients…. “mind-blowing!”
