Airmic is going places fast. Like many other organisations, our shift over the last several years to being a virtual, as well as physical, association resulted in a dramatic expansion of digital services such as webinars, roundtables, and podcasts. As a result, our membership has continued to grow rapidly even during the pandemic, and we are now pivoting back to a programme of in person workshops and events as well as digital.
Airmic has a presence in the Island of Ireland, through a small but vibrant community of engaged and active members in Northern Ireland and the Republic, eager to share their perspectives on everything from emerging risks, to difficulties in the on-going hard insurance market, to captive formation and management. The increasingly digital future gives us an opportunity to work with these communities more than ever before, and in October 2022 we will seize the moment to gather in person with our first ever Island of Ireland Forum. Supported by Brokers Ireland and Insurance Ireland, over the course of this one day event, join us as we continue to strive for transformation in risk management and insurance.

Keynote - Dara Calleary, Minister of State for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation
Dara Calleary was appointed in September 2022 as Minister of State for trade promotion, digital and company regulation at the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment. Embracing digital transformation and the potential offered by emerging technologies is vital. The adoption of new technologies will also help to maintain an innovative and resilient enterprise base. This is essential as we work to ensure the delivery of high-quality jobs and employment opportunities for people across the country. Digital technologies can also help businesses as they navigate unforeseen disruption – building resilience in the face of disruption can help provide a degree of security for both businesses and citizens in uncertain times. Minister Calleary will speak about his plans for the Irish business environment and as part of this, the future of the Irish insurance market. This will include Ireland’s strength as a global insurtech and fintech hub and the Government’s commitment to an educated and diverse workforce.

Navigating the perfect storm - keynote panel
The Perfect Storm is a true story written by Sebastian Jurgen about the 1991 “storm of the century” created by three weather systems colliding. The expression perfect storm was coined by Jurgen as the title for his best-selling book. Since then, the concept of the perfect storm has been used to describe scenarios where factors converge to create seismic events at the frontier of change.
Humanity has always been faced with naturally occurring risks and man-made risks arising from business decisions and behaviors. The difference now is that the intensity, velocity, and connectivity of risks is becoming the norm – leading to transformational change and a more turbulent world. The pandemic, climate change, events in Ukraine and the economic double hit of rising interest rates and concurrent inflation have forced organisations to rethink how they keep up with the speed of new risks emerging, the profile of known risks changing, and how risk management and insurance practices need to adapt.
