The-Women’s-Insurance-Net-Work (TWIN) is a membership based standing conference, originally set up to meet three times a year in country house settings, to consider matters of importance to the industry. However, the lockdown restrictions due to the pandemic put a halt to the residential meetings and we had to come up with another way to bring the members the same excellent speakers and subject matter. We embarked on regular online meetings, which proved very popular. So popular that now we are able to return to the residential meetings, we will also include some online meetings.
TWIN’s first meeting was in September 2007. Meetings typically attract 20-30 delegates. Our programmes allow ample time for debate – a key feature of the proceedings, something larger conferences, where very big audiences are essentially being lectured to – or at – cannot hope to achieve.
Membership is open to both women and men and is an ideal fit for female and male managers who are looking to develop teams or perhaps champion gender disparity in the industry. It’s for: Insurance companies, Reinsurance companies, Brokers, Professional services firms, Actuarial consultancies and other insurance related businesses. Membership is valued highly and consists of senior practitioners, thinkers and up-and-coming talent from across the industry. With a mix of life and non-life insurance topics encouraging the open debate and learnings which are protected by the Chatham House Rule and a “no press” policy. Corporate and Individual Memberships are available.
TWIN provides professional and personal development through intellectually stimulating debate in a conducive environment.
Members include actuaries, accountants, lawyers, underwriters, claims specialists, compliance and HR professionals.
Residential Meetings are run over 24 hours from a Thursday evening to Friday afternoon to include a dinner with guest speaker and up to five main presentations. Meeting locations are typically within an hour of central London. Members may invite guests for an additional charge (space permitting). Delegate numbers are restricted to 45 to ensure high quality debate and networking. A delegate rate will be payable for each meeting. This is a charge levied by the venues and includes; dinner and overnight accommodation on the Thursday, breakfast and lunch on the Friday.
Online Meetings have between 2 and 4 speakers and run for 90 minutes.
