Practice Groups

Join LMForums

The place of learning, debate and networking for Insurance Practitioners.

Practice Groups

Our Executive Practice Groups' generally consist of 20 senior practitioners from across the insurance sector; insurers, brokers, Lloyd’s of London and insurance trade association representatives.

The 20 Members of the Practice Group meet between two and four times a year over breakfast where key topical themes are discussed and guests speakers share valuable insights. The purpose of the Group is to provide a platform for knowledge exchange, information sharing, collaboration and networking.

The discussions at each Practice Group session are held under Chatham House Rules to ensure members feel free to share their views without concern of reporting or judgement.

Each year, LMForums arranges and hosts many different Practice Group breakfasts covering many job functions within the insurance market as you can see below.
