Monday is a full day – and all delegates are welcome!

In 2024, the first day of the conference will be open to all with a packed programme of ‘101’ learning sessions, lunches hosted by Partners, and two plenary keynotes. 

The Exhibition will open earlier at 1pm.

The 101 sessions are targeted at those in the earlier years of their professional journey, those who want to gain knowledge on subjects they are less familiar with, or subjects in which they want to update their knowledge. These sessions are not lectures and will run at a pace with delegates invited to interact.

The lunches cover topics ranging from Lessons in Leadership, Crisis Management, AI, and Women in Business plus a lunch by invitation for the AXA XL and Airmic Business Excellence Programme Alumni.

Following the opening keynote in 2023 with Amanda Blanc in conversation, CEO of Aviva, we continue this year with this style of keynote, welcoming Martin South, President and CEO of Marsh.

With more than 30 years in the insurance industry, Martin joined Marsh for the first time in 1985 with Bowring Marsh, a Marsh McLennan broking unit. Since rejoining Marsh in 2007, Martin has served as CEO of Marsh’s Asia-Pacific region, CEO of Marsh UK and Ireland, CEO of Marsh Europe and CEO of Marsh US and Canada.   

This will be followed by a plenary session focusing on Tomorrow’s Risks Today and the impact of Technology.

This will start with perspectives shared by Dr Daniel Hulme, CEO of Satalia, Chief AI Officer of WPP and Director of University College London’s Business Analytics Master’s degree.

Daniel will share a radically new framework for how people should think about AI, discussing how organisations can practically adopt these technologies, avoid being seduced by the hype, and use AI to unlock the creative capacity of their people. Daniel will suggest that it’s within the gift of us all to make a better future for everyone. Three insurance Industry leaders will then explore their vision for our future risk challenges and responses.
