GIRO Conference, 23-26 September, Celtic Manor Hotel, Newport
The theme for GIRO 2014 is innovation and the subject will span the many general insurance areas where actuaries are pushing boundaries -pricing recalibration, the future consumer, reserving judgment, tomorrow's model, working practices, diversity and next year's leaders to name but a few.
The hottest topics will be 'sold' on stage so that you can choose those that will benefit you the most. Thought-provoking plenaries will be supported by over 50 challenging workshops, with presentations from leading insurance and actuarial 'brains' as well as esteemed colleagues from wider industries. Continuing professional development, both technical and professional, will be available in abundance!
In a first for GIRO, we will be joined by the governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney (pictured), who will be giving a keynote address. You will also have the unprecedented opportunity to ask him direct questions.
Look out also for presentations from Inga Beale, chief executive at Lloyd's; Bronek Masojada, chief executive at Hiscox; Jayne-Anne Gadhia, chief executive at Virgin Money; Andrew Smith, partner at Deloitte; and - not to be missed- author and philosopher Alain de Botton giving his views on the 'Ever-changing world of work'.
The technical programme will be supported by many social, entertaining and interactive sessions, all designed to enhance your networking opportunities. All this and the magnificent Celtic Manor resort set in beautiful grounds make GIRO 2014 the event to attend!
