LeAnne Stefl and Dieter Gistelinck of the Multinational Benefits and HR Consulting practice made their way to San Francisco, California for RiskWorld, the 2022 conference of the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS). Upon their return, LeAnne and Dieter reflected on what it was like to finally reconnect face to face with their peers in the industry, what insights they gained from participating in the Gallagher Global Network (GGN) forum and what risk management trends to look for so they can help their clients face the future with confidence.
Reconnecting: Strengthening engagement in an evolving world
The RIMS conference offered an opportunity for partners, employers, clients and stakeholders in the industry to get to know one another in person, something that a number of us have been missing since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. While working from home and forming connections over computer screens has become the norm for many, there is something to be said for in-person networking.
As is crucial to any business, fostering relationships was at the front of LeAnne and Dieter's minds. Gallagher's Multinational practice works with Gallagher teams all over the world, and RIMS offered LeAnne and Dieter to connect with: Gallagher Brazil, Renomia (Czech Republic), PhilInsure (Philippines), Assiteca (Italy), Soderberg (Switzerland) and Gallagher India.
