Catastrophic Loss Trends in Canada
In this session, catastrophic event expert
Glenn McGillivray, Managing Director of the Institute for Catastrophic Loss
Reduction, will speak about the increasing challenges faced by various
stakeholders – most particularly governments and insurers – in managing risks
associated with severe weather and seismic events.
You’ll learn how
severe weather losses are rising across Canada and around the world and what can
be expected through the next decade in terms of disaster loss claims and
prevention. This engaging session will end with a discussion on ICLR’s work and
its efforts to help insurers and others mitigate the impact of severe weather
and earthquake events.
As an insurance writer and commentator with over 25 years’
experience, Glenn’s work has been widely disseminated across Canada. He’s
written more than 200 magazine and journal articles, publications and blogposts
on a range of industry issues for industry magazines.
SESSION 2: Social Media and the Law: Defamation Risks
The increased use of social media in both
a business and social context gives rise to a multitude of new potential risks.
Statements your client makes on social media can and might be held against them
in a court of law, with the cost of litigation for this continuing to rise.
Social networks can bolster a reputation, or ruin it, and your client could get
caught in the crossfire. This session will arm you with the knowledge you need
to better serve your clients in this space.
