This program was run in London, Singapore and Hong Kong respectively,  and here are some of the feedback received from risk managers in attendance

“I truly believe this programme is very helpful from beginning to end. It provides an exceptional opportunity for risk managers to gain new perspectives and points of view. I have attended just the first session and, upon my return, I began to question some of my previous decisions and I am more analytical (even critical) now. As a result, I have a superior capacity to look for new, alternative and differentiated solutions.”

“These were great days in many ways. My top three highlights were: (i) access to top management providing us with valuable insights into Lloyd’s in an unexpectedly transparent manner, (ii) the broker/underwriter shadowing exercises that gave us an outstanding educational experience and (iii) the exchanges both on professional and personal level we had within the group”

“The programme has been really well taught. It provides comprehensive solutions for many problems we may face as Risk Managers….It has been a valuable decision to join this platform.”
Head of ERM, Singapore

“The programme provides a great mix of topics and speakers from the technical side of insurance to risk management. I learnt technics which can be applied in my current job, especially on tools regarding emergent risks and cyber insurance.”
Logistic Manager, Philippines

“I enjoyed the sessions! Yesterday we learnt about the products and got to speak to underwriters and understand what they do. Today we spoke about risk management as well as BCM. You not only gain knowledge, it is also a great chance to meet people, exchange name cards, share our experiences on what we are doing on a day to day basis and how we experience the function so we can learn from each other”

Risk Manager, Singapore

“This programme is a great initiative. We not only heard from experts getting a lot of insights, we got to know how underwriters price risk, how do they underwrite the policy. We got a lot of valuable information in 2 days, not forgetting the great networking and meeting with likeminded people.”
