Published on Sun, 29/05/2022 - 18:48

The Airmic Conference is one week away with two Keynote Debates set to tackle the challenges of achieving diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and responding to an increasingly turbulent economic and geopolitical environment.

Around 1,500 risk and insurance professionals will descend on Liverpool from Monday, 6 June to Wednesday, 8 June with Monday an Airmic members only day.

The Keynote Debate on Tuesday will scrutinise the progress of corporations in making sense of their own DEI ambitions and the impact on their ESG goals.

The panel will include Dexter Tang, Global Equity Management - EMEA Compliance & Global Helpdesk Lead at Google, Tenesha Frazier, Global Relationship Leader at Crawford, Chris Lay, CEO of Marsh UK & Ireland, Suneeta Padda, Founding Director at Padda Consulting, and Soowoo Park, International Risk Analyst for Business Risk & Insurance at Google.

On Wednesday, attention will turn to how risk and insurance professionals and their organisations are expected to cope with the increasingly turbulent world we live in.

Airmic CEO Julia Graham will moderate a panel featuring David Howden, CEO of Howden, Nick Allan, CEO of Control Risks, Hayley Robinson, Group Chief Underwriting Officer at Zurich, Matthew Wilson, President and CEO of Travelers, and Tom Clementi, CEO at Pool Re.

“Risk professionals are increasingly relied on to help chart a course through a landscape of enterprise-level challenges that were often not on the radar at the beginning of the year,” said Julia Graham.

“Aside from turning the word “unprecedented” into a cliché, the escalating speed of new, different, and emerging risks is changing all aspects of risk and insurance. The need for better data, more forward-looking controls, and an emphasis on predict and prevent insurance solutions, is greater than ever.

“Our panel will address managing risk and insurance in this context – they won’t have all the answers, but they will share their insight on the way forward.”
