New Bristol president focuses on talent from within
The Insurance Institute of Bristol (IIB) is delighted to announce its new president, Tegan McKernon.
Ms McKernon is one of the area’s rising stars and is currently undertaking a place on the challenging and sought after New Generation Group programme – which is run annually by the CII.
She is all set to embark on the next year as president and the challenges that come with it, and has picked her objectives and theme for the year. The focus will be on ‘talent from within’ and will aim to throw light on the knowledge and expertise nestled away in the Bristol market.
Ms McKernon will encourage individuals and teams based in the Bristol region to receive recognition for the great work they do, and to share some of their unique skills with their
peers via workshops and lectures. As part of the initiative, the IIB council is calling on local members and professionals to come forward if anyone is interested in sharing knowledge and skills via a lunchtime seminar or session.
Ms McKernon commented on how important and valued the work of the local committee is and how little the local Institute could achieve without volunteers donating their time and efforts.
She has also chosen to support Changes Bristol, an independent local charity that provides ongoing assistance to those living with mental health distress. More information on Changes can be found by visiting: www.changesbristol.org.uk
Members in the Liverpool area are being offered a free continuing professional development (CPD) event with a difference on 21 June.
Birmingham Insurance Institute has announced details of its Insurance and Financial Services Conference 2016, to be held at the Birmingham Repertory theatre on 8 June.
Networking can be hard work. So how about a more efficient way of meeting people?
