In response to a dearth of educational opportunities geared to the development of talent in the local captive community, CWC has organised and hosted its first Advanced Captive Training event on November 22 at Old Government House hotel, Guernsey. The number of delegates was deliberately limited to encourage interaction and promote networking opportunities between attendees. In a packed programme, delegates were challenged to reflect upon key strategic, managerial and technical issues affecting the captive industry. Leading each session and stimulating debate was an expert in the subject matter. The panel of distinguished speakers was composed of Clair le Poidevin, Partner BWCI, Paul May, Chairman of Concordia Consulting, Richard Cutcher, Editor of Captive Review, Derek Millar, CEO of Catholic National Mutual, Alan Fleming of AIRMIC plus CWC consultants, Paul Wakefield and Graham Powell. Issues debated included assessing the value of a captive, boardroom ringcraft and Solvency 2 equivalence. Full details of the progamme can be found here.
Chairman of the event, Malcolm Cutts-Watson said “We were delighted with the quality of presentations and the subsequent wide ranging debates. The speakers demonstrated their in-depth knowledge and the delegates responded positively by fully engaging in discussion. We hope the delegates left feeling empowered and better equipped to succeed in their careers, today and tomorrow.”
He continued ” CWC, as an industry partner, is proud to sponsor such an educational initiative. Development of our talent is essential for the continuing success of the local insurance industry and we are pleased to be able to put something back into the local captive community.”
