Achievers celebrate their exam success
Local insurance and financial services professionals came together to celebrate their latest achievements at Birmingham Insurance Institute’s (BII) annual presentation evening.
A group of members who have passed exams in the past 12 months were invited to the city’s Council House Banqueting Suite to be presented with their certificate.
The BII also presents prizes to its most meritorious completers in the given period and two of the recipients were in attendance to receive their awards: James Baird FPFS, Cert CII (MP) for The Most Meritorious Completion of the Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning; and Eleanor Smith Cert CII for The Most Meritorious Completion of the Certificate in Insurance.
Other prize winners were Ian Yeomans for The Most Meritorious Completion of the Certificate in Financial Services; Jasmine Stewart for The Most Meritorious Completion of the Diploma in Insurance; Lawrence Gedge for The Most Meritorious Completion of the Diploma in Financial Planning; and Alistair Warden for The Most Meritorious Completion of the Advanced Diploma in Insurance, together with the Barbara Smith Memorial Prize.
Nikki Southwick-Gough, BII president commented, “The Council House is a wonderful venue, which lends the event a great sense of occasion. It is heartening to see so many members who are working hard on their professional development.”
Although the ‘Beast from the East’ caused the Cambridge Institute to cancel its Anglia Market Forum at Newmarket Racecourse, all food from the event was kindly donated to local homeless shelter Jimmy’s of Cambridge.
This month we’d like to tell you about the fantastic collection of ebook titles available to members as well as our range of subject gateway updates.
The insurance-buying public is fed up with new customers getting cheaper premiums at renewal but is still confident their claims will be settled quickly, according to a new report from the CII.
