LMForums Change Event - London
Almost 100 people gathered for this special Change Management event, which followed on from the session in Zurich on 12th May. Professionals from across the London Market received a warm welcome from Jason Sahota, CEO of Charles Taylor InsureTech and Tobias Leber, Partner at Optimity Advisors - both firms kindly sponsoring the event.
Our first speaker was Justin Emrich, CIO of Atrium Underwriters, who challenged the audience to think about the need for innovation in our sector and whether we are spending enough time on this important area. Secondly, we heard from Rod Collins, author of Wiki Management and Innovation Manager at Optimity, who explained about the diminishing relevance of hierarchies in business and the increasing importance of networks.
Following multiple roundtable discussions, Roger Oldham compered the Q&A session, putting questions from the audience to the esteemed panel. The power of Market practitioners coming together to debate these important issues was highly evident from the numbers attending and the enthusiasm of the delegates. A follow up event will be scheduled for later in the year.
