 9:00AM  10:00AM  Keynote Greg Schwem - Work, Laugh, Repeat
HuffPost calls Greg Schwem "your boss' favorite comedian." But Greg prefers to think of himself as a business humorist" who motivates corporate America through laughter. Sadly, the ability to laugh at oneself and one's industry is disappearing from the corporate environment. Greg brings that laughter back with his hilarious presentation, "Work, Laugh, Repeat." Attendees will see how Greg can find the "funny" in serious Captive Forum topics like risk management and cybersecurity.  Come to learn but, more importantly, come to laugh.  Greg Schwem is a perfect way to kick off the conference!

Winning conditions can be achieved when you not only deliver a winning work product, but also deliver it in a way that is best received by your business partners. By understanding the [perhaps unspoken] motivations and positions of our business partners, we can increase our professional influence and achieve maximum impact. Christine will share scientifically proven frameworks that help create winning conditions, illustrated through personal stories drawn from her career and participation on a reality television show.

From the Perspective of the Former Chairman of the Board of Johns Hopkins Medicine International, hear how the most important reimbursement, care delivery and technology trends in America’s largest industry are being exported around the world through private sector investing, public-private partnerships (PPPs) and innovative brand extensions by top-tier, non-for-profit U.S. health care systems.  In this keynote speech, Dr. Kersey also shares his insights into some of the leading-edge international joint ventures and private companies that are forging lower cost, higher quality and more patient-friendly delivery models in emerging healthcare economies ranging from India to Saudi Arabia to Peru.

 11:10AM  12:00PM   The role of Risk and Insurance in managing Vendor Cyber Risks
Digital transformation is as ubiquitous as Cyber risk, but in spite of their fundamental connection, the two are still not being treated with equal urgency. Although digital assets are reported as having greater economic value than physical assets the lack of cyber risk analysis is leading to under-utilisation of captives (9% adoption) and insurance (40%) to protect the balance sheet. The growing adoption of technology vendors will only add complexity to this challenge and potentially significant accumulation risk. This session will explore the new cyber threats and the role of risk officers in navigating these emergent challenges using risk quantification, financing and transfer strategies.
