More than 50 young leaders to attend ICMIF Biennial Conference in London

Friday, 29 September 2017

More than 50 young leaders from 27 mutual and cooperative insurers in 14 countries have registered to attend the new Young Leaders Programme at the upcoming ICMIF Biennial Conference in London (17-20 October). The unique programme has been designed for millennial/Gen Y employees (generally aged between 18 and 35) of ICMIF member companies, offering them the chance to attend the full ICMIF Conference as well as participate in exclusive breakfast sessions and networking events.

The attendees participating in the Young Leaders Programme will have the chance to learn from their peers at other ICMIF member companies and also enjoy the opportunity to network with senior executives, industry leaders and key external influencers from around the world.

The agenda for the Young Leaders Programme breakfast sessions has been announced and available to download from the conference website.

In Wednesday’s breakfast session, business strategist and performance coach Jim O’Loughlin will facilitate a highly engaging, interactive and stimulating session to help the young leaders maximise the value they get from the Conference. Jim will introduce ways in which the participants can sharpen their listening skills and embed brain-based principles of effective listening into a proven instrument of influence.

On Thursday morning, the young leaders will participate in roundtable discussions with a select number of guest CEOs from ICMIF member organisations around the world. This will provide a unique opportunity to speak directly with and learn from some of the most influential leaders of the mutual and cooperative insurance sector on a range of topics, including strategy, innovation, mutuality and leadership.

More than 320 delegates from mutual and cooperative insurers worldwide have already registered for this premier gathering of the mutual and cooperative insurance industry, click here to view the delegate list.

The full agenda and speaker line-up for the ICMIF Biennial Conference are available online. The 2017 Conference theme is Redesigning insurance: far from an abstract proposition, mutual and cooperative insurers understand the need to consider how they can “redesign” what they do, how they do it and the products and services they offer to their members and wider communities.

Values-based insurers help mitigate some of the world’s biggest risks but the cooperative and mutual insurance sector needs to keep innovating in order to survive. The speakers and panels at this year’s ICMIF Biennial Conference 2017 will be an invaluable source of inspiration on what our sector is already doing in terms of innovation and will also share examples and inspiration on how our members can continue to stay ahead of the competition.
