Ruby Wax and Erin Brockovich Head List of Big Name Speakers at BIBA 2009

Ruby Wax and Erin Brockovich will address the insurance industry as keynote speakers of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association’s 2009 conference and exhibition, ‘delivering value’, to be held in Manchester between 13 – 15 May.

Ruby Wax, a qualified psychotherapist and comedy actress, will explore the ability of how to get the best out of people as businesses experience ever greater financial pressures, and the conference will be closed by Erin Brockovich who inspired an Oscar winning film and made her name as a champion of the underdog.

A lively industry debate promises to delve into the reality of broking in the 21st century, investigate the problems and opportunities facing brokers and identify what real value means and how to guarantee it. René Carayol, business guru and TV presenter, will chair this session including video interviews from key players and responses from a hand picked group of delegates.

BIBA Chief Executive, Eric Galbraith, said: “We spent a long time this year considering the make up of our speaker programme, and I’m absolutely delighted to be able to announce the three sessions. I am sure that they, along with the rest of the conference programme, will be both informative and entertaining and I hope that as many brokers as possible will be joining us in Manchester!”

As in previous years, the keynote sessions will be supported by a programme of industry-focused seminar sessions and the largest insurance exhibition in this country.

Full programme information will be published shortly but companies interested in exhibiting can find more details at
