Partner Lunches

Monday 3 June from 12.30pm – 1.45pm

Some of our Partners will be hosting networking lunches on day one of the conference. These lunches are a great way to start networking with like minded individuals on the first day.

These lunches will have limited capacity and are pre-book only. 

Axa XL Lunch - Business Excellence Programme

AXA XL are proud to be sponsoring Airmic’s Business Excellence Programme for the second year. This will be an informal lunch aimed at new and prospective students, giving the opportunity to discuss the programme with representatives from AXA XL and Airmic as well as hearing from the 2018/2019 cohort on their experience of participating in the programme.

Hacksagon! – Face the threats, secure your business. Chubb’s cyber threat game.

Has your business fallen victim to a cyber attack? How would you respond? How would your colleagues respond?

Play Chubb’s bespoke board game at our partner lunch at this year’s AIRMIC conference. Our unique board game replicates the threats a business would face in the event of a cyber attack. Teams of up to 10 players take on various roles from CEO to intern to debate and strategise on how best to defend their business and learn just how far-reaching (and costly) a cyber attack can be.

FM Global - A look inside a Dark Horse Organisation

When we think of a hacker, most of us mentally turn to movies. We’ll conjure up a picture of a young person, in a hoodie, in their late teens or early twenties. They’ll be motivated by fame, or perhaps some sense of justice, or an anarchic desire to cause mischief – they will rarely be truly evil. This stereotype is both a little bit right and very wrong. The lone-wolf stereotype is wrong, too. Hackers tend to work in groups, most of them virtual, and there is a strong sense of community. In fact, these gangs are becoming disciplined enough to be considered organised crime – enterprises run by criminals who intend to engage in illegal activity, most commonly for money and profit. ‘Dark Horse’ is one of those organisations.

We’ll present the ‘Dark Horse’ organisation from the attacker’s perspective – looking at its aims and methods in order to help you understand the type of cyber threats you may be facing and what types of precautions you could adopt to mitigate cyber risk.

Marsh - Mental health and wellbeing in the workplace

MENTAL HEALTH. There, we said it. We said it loud and proud.

Everyone experiences mental health challenges at some point during their lifetime, regardless of age, gender and job title. Here at Marsh, we encourage people to talk about it. Be that stress, anxiety, depression or just a bad day, our objective is to challenge preconceptions and eradicate stigma.

“When ‘I’ is replaced with ‘we’, illness becomes wellness.”

Our Chief Executive Officer, Chris Lay, signed the Time to Talk Pledge in 2018, which has since created a wealth of opportunities for Marsh colleagues to educate themselves about mental health and actively be a part of a supportive and promising environment.

Marsh is delighted to be joined by Gareth Thomas, who revealed he is gay while working in the macho high-profile world of professional rugby. In this session, he will talk about the impact it had on his mental health.

QBE - How could the burden of information requests on risk and insurance managers be reduced?

Chaired by Grant Clemence, Head of Casualty and lead for QBE’s ongoing operational transformation programme.   Continuing QBE’s theme at Airmic of turning data into information, this informal lunch is an opportunity to discuss how the process of exchanging information between insurers and insureds might be simplified and made more efficient to reduce the burden placed on risk managers.

Willis Towers Watson and Rushton International 'Women in Business' Networking Lunch

Willis Towers Watson and Rushton International ‘Women in Business’ Networking Lunch

Please join Willis Towers Watson and Rushton International for our ‘Women in Business’ networking lunch.

This year we are joined by Karen Pickering MBE – Olympian, World Champion and Great Britain’s most decorated female swimmer.

Karen will take you through the high and lows of her career, and share some life lessons. You will hear how perseverance and focus allowed her to turn what might have been debilitating conditions to her advantage. Her wit and determination will win you over and have you cheering at her successes.

The lunch, open to all delegates, will give you a chance to network with other like-minded professionals.
