GIRO 2014

23-26 September

The GIRO committee are looking for session proposals that offer some or all of the following, and the committee will be actively selecting workshop proposals which clearly demonstrate consideration of the points below.

  • New and relevant subject matter
  • We are keen to encourage some workshops which have a stronger technical content
  • Workshops that include practical experiences and/or case studies
  • We are keen to encourage workshops that propose active engagement from the audience vs. purely a presentation from the speakers with Q&A
  • Working party findings to update on and/or to help progress research
  • Business/professionalism/wider soft skills (e.g. communication, leadership)
  • Volunteers for “Hot Topics” plenary session are particularly welcome. This is a very well received plenary session and given the format of the session which involves pitching your idea against others to garner interest form the audience, we are particularly keen to ensure that we field dynamic, confident and entertaining speakers. If you believe you are one of these we would like to hear from you!
  • We are keen to encourage workshop and plenary proposals from our female members so as to better reflect the profession’s gender demographic in our conference line up.
  • Workshops with contributions from more than one firm (e.g. a consultant and a company actuary)
  • Contributions from industry practitioners outside the pure actuarial roles(e.g. joint presentations with underwriters/brokers/claims managers etc.)

Please submit your proposal by Friday 20 February 2014

If you have any questions please contact
