The keynote speakers for this year’s BIBA conference have been confirmed as Greg Case, President and CEO of Aon Corporation, explorer Ed Stafford who was the first man to walk the length of the Amazon and businessman and star of ‘The Apprentice’, Lord Alan Sugar. A high profile panel of speakers has also been enlisted to debate the changes to regulation, including Towergate’s Andy Homer, Bluefin’s Stuart Reid, Willis’ Brendan McManus and BIBA’s Steve White.

Greg Case and Ed Stafford will speak on Wednesday, and opening on Thursday morning the debate on the changes to regulation will be held, chaired by publisher, writer and broadcaster Andrew Neil. Lord Alan Sugar will close the conference on Thursday afternoon.
