The Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF) and TurksLegal have named the team of Chris Levitt, Louise Scott, and Bipin Shangari from NTI as the winner of this year's Bright Light Award for their claims phone app idea.
The Bright Light Award allows individuals and teams in the industry to showcase an idea or view on general insurance claims through their chosen multi-media. Industry experts on the Bright Light Judging Panel then interview the finalists to develop their idea further.
NTI's Levitt, Scott, and Bipin received the award for their idea of the ‘Phoenix Group Phone App’, a claims app that aims to provide the next level of customer claims support and connectivity.
As the winner, the team received $5,000 cash, up to $1,500 to spend on coaching and professional development of their choice, and an exclusive opportunity to work with ANZIIF and TurksLegal to showcase their idea across the general insurance industry.
“During what has been a challenging year for so many, the Bright Light Award has provided some welcome relief, yet again shining a light on the creative talent that we have in our general insurance industry,” said Paul Angus, the lead partner of TurksLegal's general insurance practice and member of the Bright Light Award's judging panel.
“Now in its third year, the Bright Light Award gives those working in claims a platform to get their ideas out to benefit and shape the future of the industry, and this year's award definitely achieved that. We saw an even more diverse range of ideas and entry formats, with the majority of presentations this year delivered by way of video. We are looking forward to working with the winners to showcase their idea and to more great ideas in next year's Bright Light Award.”
