GIRO Conference 2018

23-26 October 2018

About this event


GIRO is attended annually by over 800 delegates and speakers who are keen to discuss key topics such as Pricing, Reserving, Modelling and the future of the insurance industry. GIRO 2017 was a huge success so we have opened the bookings early for what we hope will be another brilliant conference at the ICC in Birmingham this year. 

To book your place now please follow this link.

Call for speakers

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

New and relevant subject matter

New speakers within the GI industry

Stronger technical content

Practical experiences and/or case studies

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

Contributions from industry practitioners outside the pure actuarial roles (e.g. joint presentations with underwriters/brokers/claims managers etc.)

All proposals will be considered by the GIRO committee and applicants will be contacted in due course.

On this form, you will be asked to:

- Submit a title of your talk

- 100 word description

- Level of your talk

- The primary topic of your session

- Contact details and names of all speakers

- If it is a Working Party submission.

Applicants should note the following:

Priority will be given to submissions which clearly demonstrate aspects of the criteria above and which can clearly explain in their proposal what the delegates will take away from the session.

In submitting a proposal for GIRO you are committing to meeting the submission deadlines set by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, including:

Submission of speaker names (up to 2 co-speakers), description and title prior to marketing of the conference

Submission of presentation 6 weeks prior to the conference.

Presentations should steer away from promotion of services/products/companies. Consultancies are encouraged to present alongside a client to provide a balanced view.

All workshop speakers will be supported by a shadow from the GIRO committee, if you are a first time speaker the committee will give you the support you may need. The role of the shadow is to discuss proposals before confirming a slot at the conference. Once a slot is confirmed the shadow will ensure the session achieves its aims and indeed keeps to its description. This will involve reviewing presentation slides between the submission deadline and the conference itself, providing feedback in good time to allow any material to be revised, should this be appropriate.

Please note that by submitting an application you are agreeing to allow your name and contact details to be passed onto the conference committee who may contact you regarding your submission.

Submit your proposal here.

Closing Date: Friday 6 April
