Young Professional Breakfast

With the support of ACE On October 6th of 2015 FERMA and Ace invite you to go the extra mile. On this morning we will present two role models who already walked some miles. Andrew Kendrick, President of ACE European Group and Enrico Moretti Polegato, CEO of Diadora will give you insight in the steps they made in their career. What they faced and when they stood out in order to rise. Also both will address the way in which Ace and Diadora look, address, motivate and give space to young professionals and their needs and wants. This session has been organized by a dedicated team of Young InSurance, UGARI, SIRM and NARIM. Together with the FERMA they all believe in diversity. Without it, businesses will be unable to adapt effectively to changes in the marketplace brought about by cultural, technological or other socio-economic trends. This is why being aware of where you hire your talent, and ensuring that you have access to the widest possible range of talent, is important. It is difficult to have diversity of thought without diversity of experience. To encourage diversity we strongly urge all young professionals and also everybody else who would like to go the extra mile to meet us for breakfast. Then you are able to ask all your questions about how you can get to the next stage in your career, meet your peers and learn from their experiences.

Risk culture is easy to say but hard to define. The session will provide a practical insight into the human and cultural dimension to managing risk across organisations and geographic boundaries. It will cover how organisations are dealing with these issues as part of a risk management framework and look at a case study presented by a risk manager from a leading multi-national business.

Diversity Panel

Rising to the Challenges of a Diverse World “2015 is a milestone year for our common future. Last March, governments adopted the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, which will be followed by Sustainable Development Goals through to 2030, and a new universal agreement on climate changes.” Said Achim Steiner, UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP)." “Sustainable development requires recognizing the interdependencies of economic, social and environmental changes.” He added. “Therefore, disaster resilience, poverty eradication, social equity and environmental sustainability must all be part of a unified agenda. With these major initiatives, insurers are showing long-terms vision and an agenda of solutions.” "The platform will allow insurers to commit to concrete actions on risk management, insurance products, investments, partnerships and disclosure frameworks that support disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and mitigation, financial inclusion, green investment and accountability and transparency." Extract from United Nation Report June 2015 Equality is about 'creating a fairer society where everyone can participate and has the opportunity to fulfil their potential. It's good that we are different "Vive la difference"! By eliminating prejudice and discrimination we can achieve an industry that is fair and diverse and plays a role in creating a society that is healthier and happier. The Panel will consider diversity from a number of angles including geographic, religion, culture and gender.
