Insurance Institute of Manchester presents Style in The City
The prominent ‘Style in the City’ fashion show was back for the eighth time on 22 June, and it did not disappoint.
The committee of volunteers organising the event went above and beyond to give 330 guests a ‘Party in the Paddock’ themed afternoon of fun, fashion and food at the Midland Hotel.
The fashion show was filled with fabulous clothing from Fizz Fashions and Slaters. The event was choreographed by Jill Politt, who put a number of our local insurance professionals on stage to model – definitely one of the highlights of the day.
Thanks to Victoria Myers, Carter Mitchell, Audrey Henshaw, Barry Thompson, Sarah Rostron, Adam Broster, Helen Hewitt and Mark Farrant.
Almost £3,000 was raised on the day from generous donations for the president’s chosen charity, Smart Works. The Greater Manchester-based charity provides high-quality interview clothing, styling advice and interview training to women in need.
Keith Richards, managing director of engagement, and Sainesh Dar, regional corporate development director, both of the CII, have been meeting key organisations in India to establish the CII’s position as a leading influencer in the Indian insurance profession.
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has urged the public to be vigilant to the threat of online investment fraud.
The CII is relaunching its Corporate Chartered proposition for the insurance and financial planning profession.
