Gallagher Bassett to sponsor the 2018 National Workers’ Compensation Summit
One of Australia’s premier platforms for legislative updates and business case studies in the area of workers’ compensation will be returning for its 19th instalment this February, with Gallagher Bassett as a major sponsor.

The 2018 National Workers’ Compensation Summit will be held on February 20-21 in InterContinental Sydney, and will bring together executives and practitioners from a range of backgrounds including insurance, government, health and medical services, and finance.

With perspectives from federal and state governments, the annual event will analyse the impact of regulatory and legislative changes; implementation of successful RTW and injury management frameworks; the use of technology; best-practice methods for injury prevention and creating safer working environments; and creating a fairer and more efficient system.

GB’s Darrin Wright, executive director for personal injury, will talk about the evolution of leadership in personal injury; while Ben Sheat, general manager of self-insurance, will present a claims perspective on improving self-insurance liabilities through service and support.

Other notable speakers include Clare Amies, chief executive of WorkSafe Victoria; Carmel Donnelly, chief executive of SIRA; Christina Carras, chief customer officer at WorkCover Queensland; Jennifer Taylor CEO for Comcare; Jim Kelly, director for health and return-to-work at SafeWork NSW; and Kim Garling, workers’ compensation independent review officer at Workers’ Compensation Independent Review Office (WIRO).
