DALLAS—International Risk Management Institute, Inc., (IRMI) is pleased to provide three podcasts from the 29th IRMI Construction Risk Conference. These free podcasts may be accessed at

Keynote speakers Edmund F. Kelly, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Liberty Mutual, and Hugh L. Rice, Chairman of FMI Corporation, addressed attendees at the Conference in November 2009. In their keynote addresses, Mr. Kelly and Mr. Rice discussed the outlook for the insurance and construction industries as well as key tactics for contractors, insurers, agents, and brokers to survive and prosper in the coming years. Both presentations received rave reviews by the 1,100 conference attendees.

The third podcast features Mr. Kelly, Mr. Rice, and Conference Cochairman William S. McIntyre in a lively question and answer session. Fielding questions from the audience, the speakers shared their perspectives on the many challenges facing both contractors and the organizations that sell, service, and underwrite their insurance.
