CICA 2015 to include 22 education sessions

The Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) has further outlined the line-up for its 2015 International Conference Captives: The Strategic Advantage.

Taking place on March 8-10 at the Loews Royal Pacific, Orlando, Florida, the conference has 22 education sessions tailored to help businesses leverage the strategic advantages of captives to address key business trends.

“Several factors are driving profound change at this time. Technology is rapidly changing how businesses operate and the captive industry is under increased regulatory scrutiny,” said Dennis Harwick, CICA president. “We’ve designed this year’s agenda to explore the strategic advantages of captives related to these and other top business issues such as increasing demands for transparency and changing tax laws,” Harwick added.

The focus on strategic change begins with the keynote address by Jack Uldrich, who will discuss themes identified in his latest book Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow.

Uldrich is a renowned global futurist and the author of 11 books. He 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 organisations prepare for and profit from periods of profound transformation.

“In keeping with our focus on strategic advantages, CICA is using our conference app to facilitate polling during several key sessions this year. We hope the polling will make for more interactive discussions and help presenters know which topics might warrant more or less discussion,” Harwick added.
