Laura Wickham

Member of the Events Team at Zurich Insurance Company based in Zurich, Switzerland. The team is responsible for planning and managing events for the Group CEO and Group Executive Committee, as well as key sponsorship and customer events.

Examples of events managed include but are not limited to global team workshops, leadership team meetings, Annual General Meeting, Sponsorship events including World Economic Forum, Lucerne Festival, British Open, as well as smaller VIP dinners, team building activities, and key customer events such as the Zurich Global Risk Management Summit.

I have been in this Events role for only 2 years but previously had links with the industry through roles in Communications also at Zurich, both in the UK and more recently in Switzerland. Over the past year we have really started focusing on creating more sustainable events and this will be even more of a focus in 2016 and something I am keen to learn more about and get real life examples of what others are doing.
