On 9 May 2019, Xcina Consulting attended the London Insurance Market “Leaders of Tomorrow” conference, arranged by The London Market Forums. This is a well-respected financial services industry event, this year focusing on the development of younger entrants into the industry profession.
The whole day was well-attended with a broad mix of a new generation of brokers and underwriters as well as established insurance market leaders including John Neal, the CEO at Lloyd’s of London. The many presenters covered topics including talent development, career development, key topic awareness and identification of evolving risks for the industry.
XCL led a well-received conference workshop about cyber-risks and technology skills, generating lots of interest, questions and subsequent focused conversations. XCL also ran an information point all day, where people took printed examples of its recent analyses for cyber-related risks, operational resilience and regulatory compliance services.
Many delegates and senior industry presenters interacted with the XCL consultants throughout the day, asking questions, exchanging contact details and debating possible emerging risks that they might face in their careers within broking and underwriting.
