NICC Testimonials


“The number of topics that are tackled are, first of all, amazing – just in terms of the variety of the topics – but they’re also the most thought-worthy topics that you will see and you get to participate with 500 industry leaders from a thought standpoint and a knowledge standpoint so there’s no better place to spend a day and a half.”

- Monica Ningen, President & CEO, Canada & English Caribbean,
Swiss Re

“I think that there’s a lot of high-level thinking and discussing going on that is both reflective and forward-thinking…that’s what is going to help shape the industry. I feel that this is a great learning opportunity and that’s one of the main reasons why I come to the NICC – to go through that learning and understanding of where we could be going in the future for the Canadian insurance market.”

– Patti Kernaghan, President & CEO, Kernaghan Adjusters

Plus ça change, plus c’est pareil” – The more things change the more they stay the same.  We need this forum and this format to continue the discussion.  You need to attend, you need to exchange and you need to listen. You take pieces from each session and put them together to allow you to understand where to go forward.”

– Joseph El-Sayegh, Regional Vice-President and Practice Leader, Risk Management, Lussier Dale Parizeau

“I think there are a couple aspects of the NICC that have resulted in us coming back year after year. One is that the content is always good. It’s always on point. It’s covering the issues we would want to see covered. Second of all, there’s just really wide representation from the P&C industry here so it’s a great opportunity to be with people that we know, meet new people and just get a good sense of what’s going on in the industry.”

– Koker Christensen, Partner, Fasken
