During August, the CII welcomed a selection of the Institute's international directors to the Lombard Street offices, as part of the first ever International Engagement Week.
The visit was aimed at giving international colleagues a chance to see how the London offices operate first-hand, while learning more about operations, products and services, to aid them in promoting the CII and its qualification framework.
The visiting directors included: David Thompson, CII international director; Sainesh Dar, regional corporate development director of SAARC; Gaenor Jones, regional director in the Middle East and Africa; and Kenny Sui, regional corporate development director in the Asia-Pacific region.
During their time, the directors met with various teams, including qualifications, assessment and accreditation, to learn more about different CII initiatives, as well as taking a tour of Lloyd's of London and experiencing demos of CII products, such as Assess.
Mr Dar also appeared as a guest on the CII Radio podcast series alongside Keith Richards, CII director of engagement, and hosted by editor of The Journal, Luke Holloway. The trio discussed the regulatory landscape of the insurance profession, leveraging regulatory reform and the development of the CII in India and Bangladesh.
