Sian Fisher Bristol visit
Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) CEO Sian Fisher visited Brunel Professions in November to learn more from chairman Chris Ladkin and his team about one of the fastest-growing insurance brokers in the southwest. While in the area, they discussed the firm’s increasing involvement with the CII, as it launches its new venture – Brunel Insurance Brokers.
The trip coincided with Ms Fisher’s visit to the University of the West of England. At Brunel, she met CEO Russell Lane, operations manager Jane Perrett and Mr Ladkin, reviewing ways Brunel could work more closely with the Insurance Institute of Bristol and its young professionals.
Ms Fisher also met employees currently studying for CII qualifications, offering training and internal testing solutions from the CII and explaining changes in the CII, along with the benefits that insurance brokers could gain from them.
The Chartered Insurance Institute’s annual general meeting took place on Thursday 21 July in the Great Hall at Aldermanbury in London.
In his Summer Budget, the Chancellor George Osborne announced a significant change in the government’s policy towards apprenticeships. Further details were announced in the November Spending Review.
