Event description

Description

We would like to invite you to a ‘Better Claims Outcomes – risk management and remediation’ conference on Friday 9th November in the Sheraton Hotel Athlone.

IPB Insurance is running a conference to update Members on the impressive work that is being carried out in local authorities around the country to manage and reduce these claims. The objective of this conference is to share learnings on managing risk in public spaces and on how best to minimise claims relating to this risk. Senior managers, insurance officers, road and infrastructure engineers and technicians with responsibility for designing and maintaining public spaces will find this conference to be particularly relevant to their work and will also benefit from having the opportunity to discuss their practical experiences with other local authority Members.

The conference will be made up of two sessions. The morning session will consist of short informative presentations from experts on how best to deal with public liability claims, see agenda below. The afternoon session will be in a workshop format. The risk remediation workshop is specifically for engineers and technicians and will examine and seek feedback on real local authority case studies. IPB will be applying to Engineering Ireland for CPD points for the whole event.

There is no registration fee for the conference. Please register by Monday 5th November. Feel free to forward this invitation to any of your local authority colleagues who may be interested in this topic. If you require accommodation, you can contact the Sheraton Hotel directly on 090 645 1060. Rooms are available at a special IPB delegate rate of €89.
