CICA outlines 2015 conference

The Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) has detailed the conference line-up for the CICA 2015 International Conference.

Taking place on March 8-10, 2015, in Florida, the theme for the event is ‘Captives: The Strategic Advantage’.

CICA said that this sets the stage to identify and explore innovative uses of captives to address issues such as cyber and reputational risk or harnessing big data to improve risk management results.

“In today’s technology-driven, highly connected environment, everything changes and moves faster than even just a few years ago. This constant change brings increased opportunities to look at new and innovative uses of captives to provide the strategic advantage businesses are looking for,” said CICA president, Dennis Harwick. “We’ve put together a well-balanced programme designed to offer valuable insights and new ideas for industry veterans and newcomers.”

The programme opens with a general session, awards presentations and a keynote address by Jack Uldrich, a renowned global futurist and the author of 11 books.

Uldrich is the founder and “chief unlearning officer” of the School of Unlearning — an international leadership, change management and technology consultancy dedicated to helping businesses and organizations prepare for and profit from periods of profound transformation.
