Blueprint Two progress event

14 Dec 2022

On Monday 5 December, Lloyd’s alongside DXC Technology co-hosted our Blueprint Two Progress Event, updating the market on what we’ve delivered in 2022 and the key areas of focus for 2023 and 2024

With over 600 market leaders attending from both the Lloyd’s and London market, it was a great way to come together to discuss our collective progress, and the support and adoption required to deliver the programme over the next two years.

The progress event opened with a keynote from John Neal, CEO of Lloyd’s, covering the initial vision for the transformation programme and the journey we have been on to get to where we are today. He talked about the overall ambition of Blueprint Two, making the Lloyd’s and London market a better, faster and cheaper place to do business. We know the work is far from over, but we’re making great strides in delivering the programme; now is a pivotal moment in our market’s transformation.

The delegates also heard from Chris Halbard, President EMEA at DXC Technology, who gave an update on the new direction of DXC, and how they are working shoulder to shoulder with Lloyd’s to ensure that the technology is built on time and on budget.

A joint presentation followed from Chris Halbard and Bob James, Market Transformation Director at Lloyd’s, who walked through the current landscape, our progress made against the Blueprint Two roadmap, and importantly, the key milestones for 2023 and 2024 sharing some of the important digital build dates that will impact the market.

“We have made great progress this year. There’s no doubt it has been a collaborative effort to get us to this point. Without the support of the people here in this room, none of this would be possible.”

The event concluded with a panel discussion featuring Clive Buesnel (CEO, Tysers), Vicky Carter (Chairman, Global Capital Solutions, Guy Carpenter), Richard Clarkson (Head of London Market, WTW), Brad Irick (CEO, Tokio Marine Kiln), and Chris Read (COO, AXA XL UK) who were discussing their own digital transformation, and the challenges and benefits they foresee in adopting the Blueprint Two solutions. It’s been a really busy year for the programme, with a significant amount delivered – and that’s credit to everyone across our market and market associations for agreeing a path forward and taking ownership of our roles in making change happen.
