Hidden in plain sight - Spotting the signs of modern slavery

  • Thu 20 Jun 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
  • Online
    • Joanne Black, Causeway

Between 1793 and 1807 Liverpool accounted for 84.7% of all slave voyages. ‘Slavery’ was abolished in 1807 but did you know that around 1 out of every 500 people in the UK are being exploited through modern slavery in 2024? This could mean that there are people we all come into contact with as we go about our daily business that are affected, with no one suspecting because modern slavery is hiding in plain sight throughout our communities. It is often a hidden crime, but could be affecting your brother, your next door neighbour, your best friend or the person who does your nails. Causeway is a national charity with a strong Liverpool base who lead the way in driving lasting, positive change in our society. They are passionate about reducing modern slavery, crime and exploitation and empowering the people they support to live independently in their communities.

What causes a market cycle and are we heading into a soft market in 2024?

  • Thu 07 Mar 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
  • Zoom Webinar
    • Alan Chandler

What causes a market cycle and are we heading into a soft market in 2024? Hard markets usually last around a maximum of three years and this latest one started in 2020. This presentation, delivered by Alan Chandler one of the UK’s most popular presenters, looks at what causes market cycles in the insurance industry and what is likely to occur in 2024. Alan correctly called the hard market in 2020, providing a presentation on the seven reasons why the market would harden. Rates have now got much higher; investment returns are now at very healthy levels and underwriting in the UK looks a lot better proposition than it did back in 2020. New entrants will be attracted to the market and existing players will look to expand capacity to take advantage of the current favourable investment conditions. Rates will not crumble over night, but Alan predicts 2024 will see a change in demand and supply, where Insurers will have to start having to fight more for business, and there will need to be a change in the way insurers operate, which may result in home working underwriters actually answering the phone to brokers! Alan will also explore how brokers and underwriters can be successful in a softening market. Brokers have a fiduciary duty, and this means insurers cannot ask brokers to be loyal without also providing genuine benefits at renewal for the policyholder. Whilst many people will not want to see the hard market end, history tells us it will, and not mentioning it will not stop a soft market cycle starting. This presentation will equip you for the change in the market that is on its way.

  • Zoom Webinar
    • Nick Thomas, Nick Thomas & Associates

Many people believe that their emotional state is entirely dictated by external factors over which they have no control. For example, how often do we hear people say, ‘You make me angry/happy/sad’? In the workplace many develop and unconscious strategies that affect their emotional state and significantly affect their performance; typical examples include making telephone calls – particularly cold calls – and presenting or speaking in public. This empowering session shows delegates how to take control of their emotional state, shifting to the best possible state to achieve highly successful outcomes at work and at home.
