Aon Insight Series conference kicks off in Melbourne

MELBOURNE 14 October, 2019 – Aon (NYSE:AON), the leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions, is hosting its 15th annual risk conference, the Aon Insights Series, starting tomorrow.

Held at the Sofitel in Melbourne, the theme of the 2019 series is Maximising Performance, Managing Volatility. The sold out event will address how organisations can recognise disruption as an opportunity to enable strategic growth in such a volatile business environment.

James Baum, Chief Executive Officer Aon Australia will kick off the event and welcome an international audience of over 300 risk leaders. James is accompanied by the returning conference master of ceremonies, Jason Disborough, Chief Executive Officer, Multinational Accounts (International), Aon. 

With the challenges facing businesses no longer uniform, this year’s risk thought-leaders will provide deep insight, new strategies and real-life case studies to help risk leaders navigate through the increasingly demanding environment, as well as gain insight into a major multinational organisation’s risk financing strategy.

Local and international speakers will cover topics such as: the CFOs perspective on managing risk in Australia today; the global and Australian economic environment and what is means for risk leaders; balancing the opportunities and risks of artificial intelligence; navigating the changing insurance market; assessing and managing organisational culture and; the megatrends impacting the way workplaces function, and more.

Speaking ahead of the event, James Baum said, “Global risks are at an all-time high, and risk-readiness has fallen to its lowest point in over a decade, according to the Aon 2019 Global Risk Management Survey. We are delighted to host yet another insight event that will provide business leaders with the latest information, techniques and tools to recognise, harness and maximise the opportunity that volatility brings – both now and in the future”.

The 2019 Aon Insights Series, formerly called the Advanced Risk Conference, is part of a global series, with events also having taken place in Singapore and London in the last month.  The Melbourne event will be held 15-16 October, returning once again to the Sofitel on Collins.
