Miami, Florida – June 11 to 14, 2018
DOLPHINS – NATURE’S RISK MANAGERS
Besides being mammals, humans and dolphins share many characteristics and behaviors that explain our close interspecies relationship. While not exactly claims and (re)insurance professionals, dolphins are, by nature risk managers. A few examples:
We both experience CATS (well, we manage CATS and dolphins enjoy cats),
We are highly intelligent (dilemmas lead to solutions),
We all make mistakes (and apply the lessons learned),
We are not afraid to ask for help (or offer help when asked),
We are entrepreneurs (impresarios of the Caribbean and Latin America culture, climate and conditions),
We help those who are lost (preferably not in the Bermuda Triangle, though),
We really like humans and dolphins, too (mutual admiration),
We help other species (that said, only a dolphin can successfully handle a shark).
As longtime supporters Thornton Tomasetti properly loss consultants will be in Miami joining Kennedys CMK and QLDG (Quintana, López, Donoghue and González), and you in a lively discussion on current topical issues and trends of the (re)insurance market.
Nicolas Saenz will be a panelist at the Miami Latin American Claims (re)Insurance Forum Construction Catastrophes session. This interactive session will highlight the catastrophic effects of Palizadas in South American rivers, along with construction and engineering challenges, risk management, and recovery. The panel will bring personal and corporate experience before, during and after a disaster, sharing their successes and challenges in an open format exchange.
