Call for 2017 Speakers

Prior years' topic presentations etc are available from our Agenda Archives. Tip: Use the website Search to quickly find a speaker(s) or topic.

The Forum Committee send an email to all members, past Forum attendees and everyone on our e-News mailing list (subscribe now!) on February 22, 2017 requesting proposals for presentations and speakers for 2017 to be submitted on the CCF2017 Call for Speakers template and emailed to imac@caymancaptive.ky and william.forsythe@caymancaptive.ky. Click here for the Call for Speakers Template.

Submissions are to be received no later than Friday April 14th and will be responded to by email by May 31st or shortly thereafter. The April 14th deadline for submissions allows us to determine the number of Ritz-Carlton rooms to be held for speakers, thereby leaving as many rooms as possible open to Delegates. Presentation panels should be comprised of between 2 and 4 speakers and should include at least one Cayman captive owner/risk manager.  Upon acceptance we will forward a copy of the speaker guidelines which will include important information and the date we need to receive your final presentation. The final speaker selection and agenda is expected to be available in September.

Feedback from our 2016 Forum attendees (many thanks to all who contributed suggestions) indicates an interest in; more non-healthcare topics, topics for the experienced captive owners, Cyber ERM, Strategic planning for captives, more Group captive topics, Cat Bonds and ILS, More advanced topics -some of the sessions are too basic for an established captive, Senior living industry, How an insurance company can be a partner to a captive, Employee benefits in a captive. Alternative captive uses - pros and cons, reinsurance structures and creativity.

The goal of the Forum is education and networking amongst IMAC members and participants.

Note: IMAC makes an annual US$ 5,000 donation to the Cayman Islands Cancer Society in lieu of speaker gifts.

Submissions will be reviewed based on these criteria:
1. Overall quality, with well-defined focus and timeliness of the topic.
2. Level of interaction, input from, and networking among the attendees.
3. Relevance to the captive and/or risk retention industries and their associated businesses.
4. Introduction of emerging subjects or topics which appeal to varying experience levels.
5. An intriguing and concise title that conveys the importance and relevance of the subject.
6. Identify learning points and takeaways for conference attendees.
7. An inter-active format with session attendees is encouraged.
8. Panel sessions should involve 2 to 4 speakers offering varying perspectives on a topic.
9. All sessions will be approx an hour in length including introductions and Q&A.
10. Each panel session must include at least one Cayman captive owner/risk manager.
