Cyber Threat Summit

The firm is delighted to be supporting this year’s  Cyber Threat Summit  taking place on the 24th October at Helix Conference and Exhibition Centre in Dublin. Billed as the largest event of its kind, it will attract cyber security experts from all over Europe to discuss all aspects of cyber security including issues such as GDPR, the NIS Directive and of course BREXIT. Our very own Sean McGahan is on the panel and with keynote speakers including Edward Snodden, this is set to be a stand-out event. 

Insurance Institute of Northern Ireland’s Premium Masterclass Series

We are also pleased to continue our sponsorship of the Insurance Institute of Northern Ireland’s Premium Masterclass series.  Sean McGahan and Roisin Harper from McKinty and Wright joined keynote speaker and four-time Paralympic gold medallist Dr Michael McKillop and Institute President Iain Patterson at the Masterclass launch. Under the theme of ‘Premium’, the series, now in its 8th year, will feature technical insurance presentations from industry experts alongside talks focusing on the soft-skills involved in business and management success.  This years’ series is the largest to date with over 170 decision makers within the Insurance Industry registered to attend the first masterclass.

Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk

A big well done to the team from McKinty and Wright who took part in this year’s Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk, with over £600 raised from this event alone for our Charity Partner. Donations are still most welcome via our Just Giving page. We are looking forward to our next fundraising event  Run in the Dark in association with the Mark Pollock Trust raising funds to help fast-track a cure for paralysis – wish us luck!
