2019 ICMIF Americas Annual Conference

For the first time, ICMIF/Americas will be running a Young Leaders Program for members at its 27th Annual Conference.

This unique program is designed specifically for ICMIF/Americas members looking to develop their young employees, who are:

  • High potential employees within their organization and may be considered for future management or leadership positions
  • Interested in improving their personal skills and gaining a wider knowledge of technical and strategic insurance issues
  • Looking for inspiration to help develop their own careers
  • Aged between 18 and 35

Those participating in the Young Leaders Program will have the chance to learn from their peers at other ICMIF/Americas member companies and also enjoy the opportunity to network with senior executives, industry leaders and key external influencers from the Americas and around the world.

The program will provide an excellent professional development opportunity for ICMIF/Americas member companies looking to engage and educate their younger employees. Attending the Young Leaders Program will significantly help the careers of the young attendees, by providing them a wider perspective of issues impacting the insurance industry and the skills to encourage their personal growth. They will also be able to participate in discussions about the future of mutual and cooperative insurers during the Conference and provide insight of how ICMIF/Americas members can attract and retain the best millennial talent.

The Young Leaders Program includes:

  • One exclusive breakfast session for young leaders where they will have a chance to learn from and speak with CEOs of ICMIF/Americas members in small group discussions.
  • A private reception (on Wednesday August 21st) designed for young leaders only.
  • Full access to all conference sessions and social events.
  • A discount on the full conference delegate fee.

Below are some testimonials from attendees of the ICMIF Young Leaders Program held during the ICMIF Biennial Conference in London in 2017:

“The Young Leaders Program was a tremendous opportunity to meet peers from cooperative and mutual insurers from all around the globe, as well as an opportunity for the younger participants to exchange and discuss ideas with senior executives in person.”

Fabian Pütz, Assistant to Member of Board, DEVK (Germany)

“The conference gave me an incredible exposure to networking opportunities with delegates ranging from CEOs to Young Leaders. I have already seen the value of the relationships that I built and have been in touch with a few of the people I met to share ideas and insights from our own companies.”

Phillippa Joll, Commercial Insurance Consultant Team Leader, FMG (New Zealand)

“Participating in the Young Leaders Program was an incredible experience. The program had a perfect blend of opportunities to connect with peers from other member organisations as well as the opportunity to learn alongside leaders who are shaping the world stage through innovative new techniques.”
