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.”
The Insurance Institute of London’s Young Members’ Committee welcomed over 930 guests at their highly anticipated Winter Ball in November – making it a sell-out and the biggest ever IIL event.
Supporting local charities is an important part of local Institute work, encouraging members to give their time or donate funds to improve local services.
