2011 RIMS Canada Conference A DVA N C E P R O G R A M
                       The RIMS Canada Council joins me in congratulating the
                       Canadian Capital Chapter and its local organizing committee
                       in hosting Capital ConneXions. We are confident that this will
                       be the risk management conference held in Canada this year.

                        Capital ConneXions – Where Vision and Action Intersect is sure
                        to educate and inspire you. The scale of the RIMS Canada
                        Conference is perfect for connecting with your peers and
                        re-connecting with colleagues from across the continent and
the globe. The educational offerings are sure to keep our members engaged and
will considerably raise the profile of risk management in Canada.

Of the ten Canadian cities to host the RIMS Canada Conference, Ottawa, our
nation’s capital city, is one of the most striking. The all-new Ottawa Convention
Centre offers a bold futuristic design and is a state of the art event venue. We invite
you to experience the true hospitality the City of Ottawa has to offer.

The Capital ConneXions organizing committee has developed an innovative
education program, assembled an exciting exhibition hall and scheduled events
that will help you realize all of the benefits of RIMS and help RIMS in Canada
achieve its goals.

I look forward to connecting with you in Ottawa.

Tino Brambilla, RIMS Canada Council Chair

                                       2011 RIMS Canada Conference A DVA N C E P R O G R A M
                         As most of you know, RIMS Annual Conference & Exhibition
                         was back in Canada in 2011 for the first time in 15 years and
                         I look forward to carrying the energy and momentum we
                         achieved in Vancouver forward to Ottawa. Each year, the
                         RIMS Canada Conference is a gateway to expanding your
                         risk management knowledge, career and peer involvement,
                         and your participation allows us all to benefit from the most
                         engaging community of risk professionals in Canada.

In addition to enjoying the opportunity to interact with your fellow risk managers,
RIMS Canada Conference 2011 will offer a dynamic array of speakers, sessions
and events that will help you to fundamentally shape and improve your risk
management techniques and, in a broader sense, your approach to the discipline.
Speakers will touch on enterprise risk management and the argument for it, the
latest legislation affecting the field and much more.

As president of your Society, I invite you to take full advantage of everything the
conference has to offer. Additionally, don’t forget to take in some of Ottawa’s great
architecture, culture and natural beauty while you are there. I look forward to seeing
all of you in Ottawa in September.

Dr. M. Saatcioglu,
University of Ottawa

                           Dr. Saatcioglu is a Professor of Structural Engineering at
                           the Department of Civil Engineering of the University
                           of Ottawa. Previously he was a faculty member at the
                           University of Toronto, Senior Structural Engineer at
                           the Construction Technology Laboratories of the
                           Portland Cement Association, Skokie, Illinios,U.S.A.,
                           and Structural Specialist at the Canadian Portland
                            Cement Association in Toronto.

                           Critical Canadian infrastructure, that needs to be
                           operational during and after a disaster, is at risk in the
                           event of a strong earthquake. Dr. Saatcioglu’s objective is
to develop new and innovative seismic retrofit technologies for reinforced concrete
structures, such as buildings and bridges. He is a true example of excellence in
academia where an outstanding researcher transmits the roadmap for pursuit of
knowledge to young researchers on a daily basis. He is the recipient of the Faculty
of Engineering Excellence in Teaching Award, the University of Ottawa Excellence
in Teaching Award, the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations
(OCUFA) Excellence in Teaching Award, as well as the Lieutenant Governor’s
Award for Excellence in Teaching and most recently, the University of Ottawa
Excellence in Education Prize.

David Phillips
Environment Canada

                              David Phillips, generally acknowledged as Canada’s fore-
                              most weather expert, has been called “a genuine Canadian
                              legend” and “our unofficial weather guru.” However, he
                              would rather think of himself as a weather ambassador for
                              Canada, claiming that we have been blessed with one of the
                              world’s healthiest and safest climates. As a Senior Climatolo-
                              gist, Mr. Phillips’ work involves activities relating to the
                              study, promotion and understanding of the Canadian
                              climate. As a spokesperson for the Meteorological Service
                              of Canada (MSC), he is best suited to discuss weather and
                              climate issues on a national scale.

Hailers, gully washers, monster hurricanes, weather bombs - if you think we’ve
been cursed and getting clobbered a lot harder and a lot more often recently you
are not imagining it. It used to be that weather was dependable - summers were
hot and winters were cold. More and more people are asking: What’s happening
to our weather? It’s almost as if extreme crazy weather has become the norm - an
epidemic of ferocious, killer weather everywhere. Is the global climate going through
unprecedented changes? Is our weather becoming more extreme? And, if so, are
people responsible or is it sunspots and ocean temperatures and other natural
forces? There is so much we don’t know about the Earth’s climate system. The vast
majority of experts suggest that we may be witnessing the beginning of a profound
climate change and bad weather may be proof of an overheated, out-of-control
planet. On the other hand, maybe we are going through some rough times,
experiencing some bad "weather" luck. In any case, we need to do more and
things differently to better prepare for tomorrow’s weather.

Robert Herjavec
Driven: How to Succeed in Business & Life

                              Driven: How to Succeed in Business & Life, is organized
                              by the work and life principles that made Robert Herjavec
                              both wealthy and successful (indeed, these terms are not
                              synonymous). Herjavec reveals the secrets that took him
                              from waiting tables to growing his nascent technology
                              company, The Herjavec Group, into a world-class con-
                              glomerate. His principles are as valuable in the living
                              room as they are in the boardroom. On Wednesday,
                              September 21, 2011 be prepared to hear how “anyone
                              can succeed, on their own terms, by following his sage but
                              simple advice - as long as they’re willing to take chances,
                              take control of their future and stay true to their vision.”

RMC and Kelly Santini LLP are taking the 2011 RIMS Canada Conference on-line.
The Risk Management Counsel of Canada and member firm Kelly Santini LLP
have teamed up to sponsor the official smart phone App for the annual RIMS
Canada Conference.

         Features of the App include:
         • A searchable conference agenda allowing delegates
           to create and edit their schedule on the go.
         • A map of the conference facility
         • Speaker bios
         • Exhibitor listings

Helping delegates make ‘ConneXions’
The theme for this year’s conference is Capital ConneXions and the Attendee Profile
feature of the App will play an important role in helping delegates connect. If they
choose, attendees can create detailed profiles on the App and search the entire listing
to find the right people they need to meet. With direct links to social networking pages
like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, all the contact information they need will be
immediately available.
