More than forty rising stars from across the insurance profession attended the launch event for the CII's flagship talent programme: the New Generation Group in October.
The 2018/19 group is made up of future leaders from all walks of insurance with representatives from the likes of Allianz, CovÃ©a and Zurich, 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, broking and the London market.
The programme includes: an interactive session with the UK 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.
The award-winning claims faculty group from 2017 extrapolated their project into a good practice guide and updated legislation surrounding the Riot Compensation Act. You can read all about their new report here.
