The Unimutual Virtual Conference is coming up on the 17 and 18 March held between 12:30pm – 4:30pm each day (AEDT). There will also be networking opportunities at the end of both days.
Due to it being a virtual event the capacity is unlimited it is a free event for all participants from a Member organisation. A charge of $300 (plus GST) applies to Non-Members. We encourage you to forward the registration invitation to others in your team and organisation as they may find it beneficial to participate in a variety of our sessions. We have extended the registration deadline to this Friday 11 March.
For those who attend, you will receive a Certificate with CPD/CIP points following the event.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Disruption – Creator of Opportunities’, very fitting as we continue to overcome new challenges. The conference will be an opportunity for you to hear from our new Chair Andrew Kearnan and am looking forward to presenting the CEO report and updating Members and brokers with Unimutual’s strategy for 2022. The Unimutual team and I look forward to connecting with you virtual during the event.
One of Australia’s most respected media personalities and radio hosts, James O’Loghlin, will be conference MC. James will guide delegates through a program focused on how the higher education sector will lead through disruption, leverage innovation to overcome uncertainty and crisis, and take advantage of opportunities. James’ industry experience in change and innovation sees him well placed to lead a program on how disruption can build a better future.
You can also look forward to several interesting sessions including international keynote speaker, Dr Bruce McCabe who will present “Technologies to Change the World”, an expansive and high-energy segment designed to push the audience to ‘think differently’ and most importantly, optimistically about the future.
Another highlight will be Founder and Director of social impact organisation Unchained, Sarah Morse, delivering an inspiring talk on the Modern Slavery Act, the “why” behind it, and the impact of the pandemic on modern slavery and international students.
Further details on the conference and program highlights are available here, or contact Kerry French if you have any questions or if you have not received your conference invitation.
On behalf of the Unimutual team, I look forward to seeing you at our Virtual Conference next week! Here’s to a great year ahead!

Checklist – Investigating and Managing Public Liability Incidents and Claims
Accidents happen, but when they occur on your property, it doesn’t always mean that you are liable. There are processes, procedures, and actions that Members can adopt to ensure that Public Liability incidents and claims can be effectively managed, investigated and defended to minimise costs.
This checklist provides a list of issues that Members should consider when investigating and managing an incident or claim
Cyber Incident Notification and Claims Protocol
In the face of a cyber incident, taking immediate action and following the correct notification procedure could significantly reduce a potential loss. Read about the steps to take in the event of a cyber incident, along with a publication from AXA XL Insurance “Cyber Claim – scenarios ripped from today’s headlines”.
Roof Construction and Insulation Materials
The insurance industry has become increasingly “risk selective” over recent years as the market hardens in response to reduced profitability driven by an upswing in the quantum and frequency of claims, particularly natural catastrophe losses along with ongoing traditional fire losses resulting from the past use of flammable construction and insulation materials. Unimutual’s guidance material is available on the website here.
