WOBChat is an interactive fortnightly online session usually for WOB members, but occasionally for the wider network. It's a facilitated, friendly environment for members to meet, network, share and learn - online.

It will be a relaxed and informal session with an agile agenda around the following:

  • meet others in the network (with attendee details provided post WOBChat for you to follow up);
  • ask questions;
  • meet special guests; and
  • meet new members in other states. 

This event is provided FREE OF CHARGE to Full, Corporate, Global Members and Champions.

Directors & Officers Liability Insurance - Why is it so important?

Company directors and officers are operating in a complex and litigious environment and face increased pressure to carry out their duties and obligations to the expectations of all stakeholders. Directors & Officers Liability Insurance (D&O) protects directors, managers and officers from claims that may arise from decisions taken during the course of regular duties.

WOB invites you to hear from two experts in the D&O field who will discuss:

  • State of the D&O insurance market
  • Elements of a D&O program
  • D&O exposures
