Young Professionals Forum, 2022

Oct 5 - Oct 7, 2022
London, United Kingdom


REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED - maximum capacity reached

The YP Forum in London this October will be the first in-person meeting of the BU's growing network of young and developing professionals in export credit insurance

The first annual Young Professionals Forum is a unique opportunity for the future professionals of our industry to deepen their knowledge across a wide range of key topics in trade finance and credit insurance and develop career skills and explore new ways of thinking while building their network of likeminded individuals from around the globe.

The meeting will take place over 2 full days on 6th & 7th October, with an optional welcome reception on the 5th. The Forum will be hosted by LIBERTY at their London offices

  • Sessions will focus on core industry themes including: climate, sustainable finance and ESG, the future of project finance, political risk and digital enablement, as well as career development insights and inspiration from a panel of the BU's most experienced individuals.
  • Plus innovation and skills workshops focusing on design thinking methodology, behavioural economics.

Attending this meeting is FREE for Berne Union Members. Due to limited capacity, we would initially ask organisations to limit the number of delegates to two people. If you are interested in sending more, please contact Nicole and we will inform you if capacity allows more people from your organisation to join. 
Participants will be awarded a Berne Union Certificate of Continuing Professional Development to add to their portfolio

We encourage all BU Members to involve their young and junior colleagues in the YP Initiative and to consider sending a rising star as a delegate/s to this in-person meeting so that they can help contribute to building not only the export credit insurance industry of the future, but also the BU of the future!

For those of you who would like to attend, but require extra documentation for your internal travel approval processes, please contact Nicole at the Secretariat
