Lloyd’s-PARIMA PDP - Manila 2019

31 Jul



The Lloyd’s-PARIMA Professional Development Programme aims to build knowledge and expertise for risk managers. Since its inaugural event in 2016, the programme has helped risk managers in Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, Tokyo and Bangkok to gain more knowledge on emerging risks, handling claims, understanding the underwriting process, and more.

Instead of the usual two-day format, this year the programme would be abridged to one-day sessions.
