The Class of 2018 programme ends the year on a high
On 19 October 2018, members of the IIG council together with the Linda Coetzee & Associates (LCA) team gathered at the IISA Learning Centre for the final Class of 2018 presentations. The purpose of the presentations was for the delegates to review and reflect on the year that was. They were required to select a topic from the course content and present on how they are applying the material into their working and personal lives.
The panel consisted of: Daniel Stevens (IIG Council President), Neil Beaumont (Impact and Transfo
rmation Portfolio Head), Simphiwe Mtyali (Impact and Transformation council member) Linda Coetzee and Kylie Janssens from LCA. Each delegate was allocated a mark based on a scorecard completed by each panel member to ensure consistency in assessment of each presentation. The scorecard was based on the following criteria: attire, co-ordination, presentation content, presenting capability and overall impression. The top student for the day was announced as Zoliswa Juleka from SHA, her prize is to attend this year’s IIG Annual Dinner as a VIP guest.
It was truly an insightful day as each student displayed impressive presentation capabilities and shared their 2018 journey with the panel and their peers. As the IIG we hold ourselves to a very high standard and we want to consistently deliver value to our members whilst ensuring that we attract and retain young talent in the industry. If at any point we questioned how much of a difference we were making in young lives, the presentations certainly emphasized the level of the delegate’s appreciation towards the programme. It was clear that it has made a positive impact on their growth and development in 2018.
The year has flown by and here we are at the end of the Class of 2018 programme. The presentation showcase demonstrated that the insurance and reinsurance industry have ambitious leaders in the making – young talent with a bright future. A big thank you goes to the sponsors of the Class of programme: Old Mutual Insure, SASRIA, Emerald Africa, Fulcrum and Swiss Re. Thank you for your contribution, without it our Class of programme would not be possible.
Applications for the Class of 2019 programme will be released in the next month and are set to close on the 31st January 2019. We look forward to receiving plenty of applications from passionate, vibrant and determined young talent in the industry.
