017aI was fortunate this past week to be a part of the very successful Regional Professional Liability Symposium of the Professional Liability Underwriting  Society (PLUS) in London. About 180 people attended the sold out event, which featured a key note address from David Bermingham, one of the NatWest Three. The event was both well-attended and well-run. It was a privilege and an honor to be a part of such an excellent event. I congratulate everyone on the Europe Committee for their successful event, particularly Committee Chair Des McCavitt of Aspen (London). I also want to acknowledge and thank the many table sponsors who helped make the event’s success possible.


It is worth noting that all three of the events PLUS sponsored this year as part of its initiative to expand its international footprint – the three events were held in Hong Kong, Singapore and London — were highly successful and bode will for the future. The success of these events ensures that PLUS will continue its efforts to become a truly international membership organization.


I have added some picture of the event below. Additional Pictures can be found on the PLUS blog, here.

It was a good week to be in London and not just because of the great PLUS event. The weather was great as well. According to news reports, this past month was the driest September on record. Whether or not the weather conditions actually set a record, the conditions were great for walking around.
