This is a free event, Booking is available only to ELA members who work in-house.

The ELA In-house Committee has arranged this event specifically aimed at in-house members only. Following the successful half day conference in October last year, the event is intended to be a continuation of the dialogue with our in-house members about how ELA can help this sector of our membership. It is also an opportunity to network and socialise with other in-house members in an informal, relaxed atmosphere, at UNISON’s offices in Euston. Light refreshments will be served during the evening.

Our speaker this year will be insurance broking veteran, Stuart Reid who will talk about what business leaders want from their in-house employment counsel.

Stuart has built successful broking businesses and overseen complex integration processes throughout his career.  In 1993, he co-founded Stuart Alexander, bought by Axa UK PLC in 2007 which became part of Bluefin Insurance Services, an amalgam of several acquired brokers which Stuart ran as CEO and later Chairman. In 2015, Stuart joined Arthur J Gallagher to take on the role of CEO of UK Retail. He left at the end of 2016 and is currently looking to return to the industry later in 2017. He is currently Vice President of the Chartered Insurance Institute and was formerly Deputy President of the British Insurance Brokers Association.

About the ELA In-house Committee

The ELA In House Committee is established to represent and focus on the interests of the ELA membership who work in house.  

The Committee is made up of volunteers from ELA’s membership, all of whom work in house in the public or private sector. It is chaired by Mark Hunt, ELA’s elected In House Representative, who also sits on the ELA Management Committee.

Its specific aims are:

  • To establish the needs of the in house members in relation to ELA and seek to meet those needs, with a focus on provision of  targeted personal and professional development and training, networking and opportunities to get involved in ELA’s work on legislative and policy developments.
  • To represent the interests of the in house membership within ELA.
  • To encourage community and support between in-house ELA members and more broadly between in house ELA members and the rest of the ELA membership.
  • To encourage the participation of in house ELA members in the work of ELA and promote awareness amongst the ELA in house membership of the opportunities and resources offered by ELA to all its members.
