Professor Sir David Spiegelhalter is a best-selling author and Chair of the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication hosted within the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at the University of Cambridge. The Centre aims to ensure that quantitative evidence and risk is presented to people in a fair and balanced way.
David will address the proposition that data does not speak for itself – it needs people to speak honestly and carefully on its behalf. A misunderstood statistic could have terrible consequences in health, wealth, and justice. By contrast better statistics should lead to better debate and hopefully, better decisions.

I've been attending the AIRMIC conference for over 10 years, spanning my in-house career. My knowledge and therefore attendance objectives have changed significantly during this time, but the conference activities have always kept up with my needs and every year has been a worthwhile use of my time.
It provides the highest concentration of insightful risk management seminars, workshops and industry networking of any event I know. I always come away from the event with new knowledge and connections – often totally unexpected ones. The conference’s blend of enabling delegates to plan a schedule in advance but also jump into any interesting events and meetings they stumble across is fantastic, creating opportunities to broaden my horizons and challenge myself rather than going over the same topics and views that just reinforce my current thinking.
Riskonnect view Airmic's Annual Conference as the pre-eminent Risk Management event in the UK, as it covers the full spectrum of both Insurable and Non-Insurable Risk enabling us to meet with Insurance, Risk, Compliance, Audit and Business Continuity professionals at a single event.
The Airmic conference is a great opportunity to meet with our customers and brokers in one place to discuss, debate and mutually share insight about the risks businesses are facing and how we can work in partnership to tackle these. Exhibiting at the conference gives us the visibility and platform in which to demonstrate our expertise as well as our core values and our commitment to these
Exhibiting at Airmic is an extremely efficient and effective way to get your brand in front of the prominent industry risk managers in the UK. The Airmic Conference provides the opportunity for our staff to meet with numerous risk managers and clients in one location rather than having to plan multiple trips to see individuals located within different regions.
