Chartered Insurance Institute of Hong Kong (CIIHK) and Future Insurance Leaders hosted their first networking event in March.
Guest speakers at the event included Keith Richards, managing director of engagement at the CII; Winnie Wong, CEO of Asia Insurance; and Kelvin Cheung, vice-president, Allied World Assurance Co.
During the event, Ms Wong spoke to the audience and told them how it was actually the ACII and FCII qualifications that attracted and kept her in the insurance industry. She said after the event: "I really enjoy meeting people -- clients, agents and brokers -- so I can better understand their needs and help them manage their risks. Satisfied customers then become friends.
"There are challenges every day but I treat them as learning opportunities. As long as we maintain a positive mindset with a can-do attitude, are humble and keen on continuous, lifelong learning, the insurance industry can be very interesting and rewarding."
