MINNEAPOLIS,  Dec. 5 ─ The Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) announces the conference line-up for the CICA 2015 International Conference March 8-10 at the Loews Royal Pacific, Orlando, Florida.

This year’s theme Captives: The Strategic Advantage sets the stage to identify and explore innovative uses of captives to address issues such as cyber and reputational risk or harnessing big data to improve risk management results.

“In today’s technology-driven, highly connected environment, everything changes and moves faster than even just a few years ago. This constant change brings increased opportunities to look at new and innovative uses of captives to provide the strategic advantage businesses are looking for,” says CICA president, Dennis Harwick. “We’ve put together a well-balanced program designed to offer valuable insights and new ideas for industry veterans and newcomers,” Harwick added.

The CICA International Conference program opens on Monday, March 9 with a general session, awards presentations and a keynote address by Jack Uldrich, a renowned global futurist and the author of 11 books. Uldrich is the founder and “chief unlearning officer” of the School of Unlearning — an international leadership, change management and technology consultancy dedicated to helping businesses and organizations prepare for and profit from periods of profound transformation.
