CII New Generation Groups 2016 unveiled

The CII New Generation Group, class of 2016, met for the first time at the launch event held in London on 23rd of October.

This year's New Generation Programme saw over 170 insurance industry professionals apply for over 40 spaces spread over four groups: Claims, Underwriting, London Market and Insurance Broking. The programme, now commencing its fifth year, was created by the CII faculties to help inspire new industry thinking, develop future leaders and provide participants with an opportunity to make a difference to the future of their profession.

The launch event took place at the CII to welcome the coming year's groups and engage them in interactive activities. The event also gave the immediate past group members the chance to speak about their experiences and current projects.

Ant Gould, director of faculties at the CII, said: "As our programme enters its fifth year I'm really looking forward to hearing what the class of 2016's views are on driving change in the profession. Along with helping them develop new contacts and networks it will give them a broader understanding of the insurance sector and provide them with the opportunity to learn key management and project skills.

"Every year I am impressed by the talent and potential of the bright stars we see coming through the insurance profession. Furthermore the out-going groups' projects - due out by the end of the year - promise to be as insightful and relevant as in previous years covering  fracking, dealing with vulnerable customers, reputation and  insurance and choice in the London Market.

 "In addition to working on their projects, we provide the New Generation groups with a workshop at the Financial Conduct Authority, a seminar and reception at the House of Commons on how to drive change and engage with the political process, a full day's media training and a full day on strategic skills - all designed to help the groups press forward their project outcomes and recommendations."

Kate Handley, home portfolio manager  at Allianz Retail - Technical and member of the 2015 underwriting group, said: "The programme has given me rare illuminating and enjoyable opportunities to deepen my market understanding. It has given me the opportunity to interact with stakeholders in the wider insurance industry through learning and networking activities such as visiting the House of Commons, talking with the FCA and media training with journalists.

"I have enjoyed working on a project with my peer group across the industry on an issue with a social conscience that impacts us all, and getting to talk it through with senior members of brokers and insurers has been a unique chance."
