Attending CRIMS

19 November 2015

Three members of our Cargo team attended this year’s RIMS Canada conference (CRIMS) in Quebec City in September. CRIMS is the second largest risk management conference in the world and attracts around 1,000 attendees every year.

JLT Specialty Associate, Abigail Geraghty, who attended the conference with Jay Payne and Tony Achinelli, says: “Canada is becoming an increasingly important market for us and the timing was good because JLT Canada have recently gone through a period of change. They are expanding; during the last 18 months they have employed a new CEO who is making a number of strategic changes and bringing in new key people. Therefore, it was a great opportunity for us to meet our colleagues and update them on our capabilities and the London market appetite.”

The event offered plenty of networking opportunities with both colleagues and clients. JLT Canada set up a business lounge that acted as an informal meeting point and also hosted a cocktail reception in a stunning venue – La Chapelle – Musée de l'Amérique Francophone, which was attended by around 350 people.

Abigail says that the informal nature of the conference was a real highlight. “It was a very relaxed way to meet clients and colleagues.” She adds: “The trip was very worthwhile and hopefully demonstrated our commitment to business growth in Canada and our clients”.
