Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the PLUS Foundation Luncheon. It was wonderful to hear from Former First Lady Laura Bush! We’re happy to support the PLUS Foundation and the Women’s Leadership Network with speakers who bring powerful life experience to our attendees.
There are more education sessions happening throughout the afternoon as our speakers continue to examine and discuss the crucial topics and trends in today’s professional liability industry. From current EPL topics, to an in depth review of Intellectual Property Risk Management, to the dilemma of underwriting cannabis risks, there’s and education session tailored to your interests.
We invite all attendees to join us for a special session from Julio A. Portalatin, the Vice Chair of Marsh & McLennan Companies. Julio will be speaking on the intersection of diversity and automation, and how the benefits of an inclusive information interacts with the interface between human diversity and technology. This will be an excellent session from an important thought leader in the industry.
The second day of #PLUS2019 is off to a great start. The first education sessions of the day are in Potomac C and D: a mock-trial exploring cyber liability and the war exclusion, and a discussion panel on Side and event driven litigation within the D&O industry. We’ll have education sessions throughout the day today, many offering CE and CLE credits—check your agenda and make sure to get your paperwork stamped on the way into the session!
Did you get chance to try the Virtual Reality game at the Reception last night? If you didn’t, or you did and want to show off your skills, we’ll have the VR game set up in the Connections Lounge today. Come check it out and impress your colleagues! TechBytes are also happening all day today, giving you a leg up on tech knowledge in between education and networking.
Want to help out a good cause during your down time? Each year we offer attendees the opportunity to give back to the community where the Conference is held, and this year—in honor of Veteran’s Day—you can support the people serving in the military by volunteering with the local USO. Stop by Maryland Ballrooms 2 and 3 to help us prepare care packages and messages for deploying troops. Everyone is welcome to participate!
Finally, this afternoon is the PLUS Foundation Luncheon where you will hear from Former First Lady Laura Bush. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear her speak on her experiences and influential life. We’re looking forward to hearing from her.
What a fantastic session to open this year’s Conference! A huge thanks to both Dan Heath and Daniel Pink for sharing their insights with us. It was great to hear not only both of them speak but have them interact and discuss their ideas. Thank you to all the attendees who sent in questions for our speakers! Let us know how you liked this new session format. We’re always interested in what our attendees think as we look to push the PLUS Conference in new directions every year.
The Opening Reception was lovely, providing a wonderful end to the first day of our 2019 Conference. We love being able to provide an enjoyable atmosphere for you to mingle and connect with your peers in a more relaxed setting. And it seems like the Virtual Reality Game was a hit!
Tomorrow brings education sessions on a variety of pertinent issues from knowledgeable speakers, as well as a PLUS Foundation Luncheon with Former First Lady Laura Bush. Breakfast starts at 7:30 am, and there will be a barista making specialty coffee in the Connections Lounge for any and all attendees. See you tomorrow!
