Storm in a Teacup - Climate Change
The Insurance Institute of Perth and Dundee's forum event in September 2014 focussed on Climate Change and how it affects the insurance industry.
Entitled 'Storm in a Teacup' delegates will hear from industry experts on the subject of climate change, how this will impact property planning and what insurers are doing about it, each presenting for 15-20 minutes.
The speakers will be followed by a Q&A session which will provide some provocative debate on the subject.
