Question Time: Is the London market falling behind in the war on talent?

Insider Progress Webinar 2022 Waiting List

Event registrations are now at capacity. To be added to the waiting list, please contact

Ask any London market CEO what their biggest business challenges are right now, and talent is sure to be right up the top.

With rising wage inflation and internal market competition for talent hotter than ever, it is clear that the talent pipeline for the London market is broken. And if EC3 is to guarantee its success long term, this challenge must be tackled head on.

Join us for our next Insider Progress event on 8 December, our first in-person gathering since the start of the pandemic.

We will be mixing up the format, with a panel of senior London market executives and a Question Time-style set-up, to encourage free-flowing debate on this business-critical topic. The event will be held under Chatham House rules for full and frank conversation.

Attendees are invited to submit their questions in advance by emailing and the best will be chosen for the event.

Topics for debate will include:

  • How do we fix London’s broken talent pipeline?

  • What do the younger generation want from their employer?

  • How do we get the London market story out there?

  • Talent retention strategies and case studies of success

Keynote speaker:

  • David Howden, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Howden

Panel speakers:

  • Kirsten Valder, Chief Administrative Officer at Arch Insurance International

  • Caroline Wagstaff, Chief Executive Officer, London Market Group (LMG)

  • Sara Gomez, Chief People Officer, Lloyds

  • Moderator: Catrin Shi, Editor-in-Chief, Insurance Insider

9:00 AM to 11:00AM at Howden UK Office, One Creechurch Place London, EC3A 5AF
