NxtGen Bristol, the young professionals group of the Insurance Institute of Bristol, hosted a Question Time-themed evening on Thursday evening 11 October.
The group welcomed three speakers -- John Marks, sales director, Jelf; Jeff Heasman, a qualified language trainer; and the institute's own Richard Smith, global head of underwriting
The theme for the evening was change and progression in the finance/insurance industries and the direct impact this has on young professionals today, and the key focus was on technology, key skills/experience, CII exams and diversity.
Host David Bryan put various questions to the panel before opening the floor to the audience.
Lively debates ensued, with varying thoughts and opinions from people who have gone through the profession with experience and those that are currently part of it or entering.
