Voice 69

Voice is ICMIF's quarterly magazine, containing stories and news embracing the sector as well as in-depth interviews with chief executives.

From this issue:

The idea for the workshops was born at the ICMIF conference in Toronto last October, where several executives and board members from Capricorn Mutual took part in the strategic decision making workshop that preceded the conference. As Greg LeGuier, CEO of Capricorn Mutual, explains, "After engaging with AGILE in Toronto we thought it would be beneficial for all of our directors and senior management to experience it. We also enjoyed the networking opportunities in Toronto and thought that running an event here in Perth would be enhance by inviting other ICMIF members in the region." The idea attracted very strong endorsement from ICMIF Chairman and CEO of AMI Insurance, John Balmforth. "I wanted to support an initiative that would bring ICMIF members together to create something better than the sum of its parts. This is what this association is all about," he says.
