Delegates participate in a 40-minute boardroom presentation with a senior fund manager speaker from each sponsoring group. These sessions are held in smaller, more intimate groups to facilitate in-depth analysis and discussion.
Fund manager speaker details will be announced in early 2024.
Previous years have seen a range of panel discussions covering areas such as macroeconomics, industry trends, ESG and other thematic topics. The panellists are CIOs, CEOs, chief economists and experts from the sponsoring groups.
More details will be released nearer the time.
At JIC, the main platform focuses on thought leadership, with the majority of content delivered by external speakers. In 2024, we are looking forward to hearing from the following speakers:
Sir Richard Shirreff had a 37-year career in the British Army, and commanded soldiers on operations at every level from platoon to division. This has included combat in the Gulf War of 1991 as a tank squadron leader and again in Iraq as a divisional commander, together with other operations in Northern Ireland, Kosovo and Bosnia. In addition he had extensive staff experience at brigade, Army HQ and in the Ministry of Defence. He commanded NATO’s Allied Rapid Reaction Corps and his final military assignment was NATO’s 4 Star Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe.
In February 2016 he co-founded Strategia Worldwide Ltd, a global risk advisory company, which has since built up a sizeable portfolio of clients across different industrial sectors. Also in 2016 his novel entitled 2017: War With Russia, was published and became a bestseller. It has been translated into eight languages.

Polar Explorer Ann Daniels is a world record holder and one of Britain’s leading explorers. Starting out as a mother of young triplets and without any outdoor experience, pure hard work and belief led her to being selected from over 200 more experienced women to take part in her first North Pole expedition. From these humble beginnings, she went on to conquer the South Pole and in 2002, along with her team mate Caroline Hamilton became the first and only women in history to ski to the North and South Poles as part of all women teams. Experiencing temperatures as low as -50C and dealing with various encounters with Polar bears, she has sledge-hauled over 2000 miles, in the most inhospitable environments in the world, completing over 10 polar expeditions and surviving over 400 days on the ice. As a Polar guide and ice leader of the high profile scientific Catlin Arctic surveys she is living proof that good leadership, teamwork and believing in yourself does make a difference.
