New Generation Group programme 2018 launched
Over forty rising stars from across the profession attended the launch event for the CII’s flagship talent programme: the New Generation Group in October.
The 2018 class is made up of future leaders from all walks of insurance with representatives from the likes of Arthur J Gallagher, Aviva and RSA, among others.
The New Generation talent programme helps develop future leaders and provides participants with the opportunity to make a difference to the future of their profession across claims, underwriting, insurance broking and the London Market.
This year’s programme will include: A ‘behind-closed doors’ interactive session with the Financial Conduct Authority to help the participants understand how the regulator goes about its task; talks from members of parliament and policy and public affairs experts in the insurance sector, and a tour of the Houses of Parliament; and training on subjects such as strategic thinking and dealing with the media.
Each specialist group will also be asked to complete a project or initiative that could make a difference to the insurance profession and contribute to building public trust. Previous groups have delivered projects on serious issues that impact customers from claims handling to vulnerable customers and fraud.
A recent Claims Faculty group project scooped several awards this year for its claims handling guide for the Home Office and police as part of the new Riot Compensation Act.
The CII and Cicero have published the Financial Technology (FinTech) Risk Report, to examine the inherent risks in the growth of FinTech and the impact this will have on wider society.
