Premier and humanitarian photographer to speak at Captive Conference
David Burt, the Premier, and photographer and humanitarian Giles Duley are to be the keynote speakers at the annual Bermuda Captive Conference, which is to be held June 14-15.
Mr Burt will deliver the keynote address on day one of the conference, with Mr Duley taking the honours on day two.
The theme of the conference, which is to be held virtually for a second year running, is “Resilience”.
Conference organisers said: “Hear the Premier of Bermuda discuss and share insights on Bermuda's resilience in weathering the last 12 months of Covid-19, from its leading position as a captive domicile to how its nation came together in response to the global pandemic.”
They added that the fireside chat will be moderated by Sophia Greaves, a director of law firm Conyers Dill & Pearman.
Organisers said Mr Duley “has documented moving, inspiring human stories in Lebanon, Iraq, Cambodia, Laos, Colombia, Uganda, South Sudan, Angola and Jordan. Photographing conflicts and humanitarian crises for charities and NGOs, he has travelled the world meeting the victims of war and disaster.
“As a triple-amputee survivor of a bomb explosion, Giles shares stories that are by turns poignant, inspirational and amusing, whilst considering the enduring nature of the human spirit that helped him overcome his injuries.”
Attendees at the BCC, which was created in 2004, include captive insurance owners, risk managers, sponsors, vendors, plus legal, audit, banking and support services from Bermuda, North America, Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the United Kingdom.
The conference is free to attend, thanks to the support of event sponsors.
