Young professionals continue to thrive

Novus, the young professionals’ group of the Insurance Institute of Cardiff, continues to go from strength to strength.

Started in 2015 by a group of likeminded young professionals looking to network with their peers, only one of the founding members remains – showing that the group has developed a successful, sustainable model that can be passed on to future members.

Today’s group is the most diverse ever, with eight current council members made up of: four male and four female; five from insurance and three from financial services; and hailing from a total of six companies, ranging from small local businesses to international corporations.

Novus supports the local young CII members by offering quarterly networking events. These events are held in the evenings at a range of bars and venues around the Cardiff city centre, to encourage a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for CII members that are typically newer to the industry and less experienced at such events.

Some events feature networking games, coaxing attendees out of the groups they came with and encouraging them to mingle with each other. One such event was reported in feedback as being “the best networking event they had
ever attended”.
