Series of Connect21 cascading events continue

08 November 2018

In the last two weeks Bart has visited three operating companies to present the new 3-year strategy.

The first stop was PORTUGAL during a Management Meeting held on 24th October at Nova School of Business and Economics, a new partnership of Grupo Ageas Portugal. The motto of the day? “Let’s Connect to 21”.

After Bart’s presentation and interventions from colleagues who were involved in the different Connect21 workstreams, Steven Braekeveldt focused on the achievements of 2018, the new partnerships and partners and the people behind each project, emphasizing the importance of achieving defined goals together.

In the afternoon, while managers discussed the cascading of the Group strategy towards Grupo Ageas Portugal’ local strategy, Bart had an informal chat with a group of employees. Several subjects were addressed such as: how to leverage synergies between the different group entities, Human Resources, new technologies, brand awareness and investment in new markets. The overall goal was met: “to be an insurer that is close to its people, a human insurer with a warm heart, and there when people need us most.”

The Connect21 journey continued on the 30th of October in HONG KONG with a presentation to the staff at our Asia Regional office townhall meeting.
Finally, on the 5th of November Bart presented Connect21 to the staff of AG REAL ESTATE in Brussels. After his presentation Serge Fautré, CEO AG Real Estate, discussed the impact of the new strategy on our real estate activities and how they can contribute to the realization of Connect21.
