Members of the CII can now mentor and be mentored by other members from anywhere in the world.
The platform, called Connect, was built to promote professional development and learning for insurance professionals at any stage of their careers.
Mentoring can be undertaken in a flexible manner to suit different preferences, such as meeting face to face or online, enabling a much broader range of people to share their specific skills and experience.
Both mentors and mentees may be able to accumulate continuing professional development (CPD) hours for their participation.
Mentors and mentees will be able to pair themselves up in accordance with specific criteria, such as skills and specific learning needs, which the participants will self-declare. In so doing, the programme will make the most effective use of the broad range of skills and expertise within the personal finance profession, regardless of geographic location.
