NEW For 2014 - ‘In The Boardroom’ Discussion Groups – Wednesday June 18th
With the wide array of regulatory and market challenges facing the industry, we have recognised the need to create time for small group discussions away from the main stage, to allow more open, in-depth discussion of practical solutions in a closed-door environment. At this year’s event we will therefore be launching practitioner-led, collaborative discussion sessions on key industry topics. The practitioner host will present five minutes of initial thoughts on the topic before opening the discussion to the group, where people will share their ideas, challenges and experiences in that area. The discussions will be open to all but will be limited to 20 spaces per session.

Take a look at the agenda for the leading risk management event in the Americas.
