Wine Tasting Evening - Tuesday 20 June 2017

It was a pleasant evening outside the Wine Library on Tuesday 20th June. It was an even more pleasant one inside, where members and their guests sampled six French wines carefully selected for them (with accompanying paté and cheese) at a tutored wine tasting.

The wines ranged from a white Picpoul de Pinet to a fine claret. They had all been carefully chosen as good value representatives of their type, usually from lesser-known appellations which could nevertheless well represent that class of wine. From members of the insurance market, close scrutiny and expert knowledge could be expected. Expectations were not disappointed! It seems safe to say, though, that everyone learnt something, and both mental and physical notes were taken for future use.

We are confident that all our members not only now know more about good French wine, but will also be able to source better value as well as good quality wines as a result of a most enjoyable and convivial evening.

Insurance Fraud Forensics - Tuesday 18 July 2017

We are delighted to invite you to our July event. Guillermo Lopez of Rimkus Consulting Ltd will be giving a presentation on Insurance Fraud Forensics. Guillermo is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer with over 10 years' experience in a range of technical and project management roles for the Upstream Oil and Gas and Insurance industries. He provides technical support for insurance, legal and corporate clients, including machinery inspections, accident investigation, risk engineering and asset integrity assessments.

The talk will take place at 5.30pm on Tuesday 18 July 2017 at The Broker's Wine Bar, Leadenhall Market, and be followed by an opportunity to network with the benefit of a cash bar.

The talk is free for members and their guests (£10.00 for non-members), but we ask you to register your intention to attend (PLEASE CLICK ON FORTHCOMING EVENTS) so we can control numbers.

We look forward to seeing you and chatting over drinks. Please let your colleagues and friends know that they will be most welcome to attend.

Monte Carlo Dinner - Monday 11 September 2017

We are delighted to invite you to the AirSP Monte Carlo Dinner which will take place on the evening of Monday 11 September, after the Municipality cocktail party. We really hope that you will be able to join us from 8.30pm at Restaurant Quai des Artistes.

AirSP are requesting that you purchase your tickets in advance. We hope that most attendees will bring at least one guest – networking is one of our major purposes - so a member's ticket will be for two people and will cost £160.00 for the two (non-members’ ticket price £180 for two). Such tickets will cover a bottle of wine for the two with the meal (of course, you are most welcome to purchase additional bottles if you so desire).

In the first instance, to avoid over subscription, members’ tickets will be limited to two per organisation (2 member representatives plus two guests). We do expect to be able to make available further individual tickets at a cost of £80 (£90 for non-members) each, subject to availability.


To ensure that you don't miss out on joining our highlight event, you can register and purchase tickets via the website (
PLEASE CLICK ON FORTHCOMING EVENTS) or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
, giving details of how many tickets you would like to purchase and payment details will be sent to you. We look forward to seeing every member who comes to the Rendezvous.

The full purchase price must be received prior to 15 August 2017. No cancellations will be possible after the 30 August, although the place can be transferred to an alternative attendee. Monies will be returned, less a £20 administration fee for cancellations received before 30 August.

We look forward to welcoming you and your guests at the Quai des Artistes.


Best regards

AGM Dinner - 9 May 2017

Following the AGM on 12 May, we held AirSP’s annual dinner. We were fortunate to have with us as our guest Adam Kembrooke, Group Chief Legal Officer and Group Chief Risk Officer of Nexus Underwriting. Adam spoke to us about the philosophy behind his group's understanding of managing agencies, with particular reference to the operation of the claims function as part of a profit-making enterprise.

Adam has a broad and interesting background, being a lawyer qualified in both New York and England, who has worked in-house as both a legal officer and a risk officer for some years. He had many useful insights into what companies like his want from their service providers and how those who provide services to such companies can provide best value to their clients and adapt to new paradigms as the market develops.

Willingness to think outside the box, partner with clients, cooperate in marketing, develop new services and operations together are just as important in the new world as the old-fashioned requirements of high quality service, flexibility, responsiveness and value for money. None of which is to say that any of them have been downgraded!

Adam’s talk gave rise to a vigorous discussion around the table with many comments, queries and suggestions. It was exactly the invigorating and interesting event we had all hoped for and we are most grateful to Adam coming along and giving us the benefit of his experience and forward-looking approach.
