The D&O Diary was in New York last week for the 2018 version of the Professional Liability Underwriting Society’s annual D&O Symposium. It was great to see so many people who had traveled from near and far to attend the event and to see old friends and make new friends.
It was my privilege and honor to have moderated a panel at the Symposium. On Thursday morning, I was the moderator for a panel entitled “Emerging Exposures – What Do You Know?” focused on liability and insurance issues pertaining to cryptocurrencies, ICOs, and Artificial Intelligence. It was an excellent panel and it was a pleasure to work with such an esteemed and knowledgeable panel for the session. My thanks to the panelists (pictured below) for their time and efforts preparing for the session; to Brenda Shelley of Marsh and her conference co-chairs for inviting me to serve as a moderator; and to the attentive and lively audience that attended the session.
The sessions at the D&O Symposium are always first rate but an equally important reason to attend the event is to see all of the many people at the conference. I enjoyed saying hello to so many fellow industry professionals. Some pictures of some of the people I was fortunate to greet in person are set out below.
