Carla’s message to the IIG delegates

We are so excited to welcome you onboard for our 5th IIG International tour!

This year the Ultimate Education and Networking Experience of a lifetime, powered by Camargue with media coverage by Oakhurst Insurance, takes place in arguably two of the most interesting cities in the United States.  Our first stop takes us to San Francisco, often referred to as the cultural, commercial, and financial centre of Northern California; followed by a further three days in Washington DC, the capital city of the US and one of the most visited cities in the world.

Here we will not only get the opportunity to visit, engage and interact with global insurers, reinsurers, and intermediaries, but also tech savvy start-ups, innovation pioneers, and even a world-renowned university . . .

And that’s not even the fun stuff!  I personally can’t wait to see some of the iconic sights of both cities, and spending our leisure time exploring these places further and creating memories for a lifetime!

Let’s all make the most of this trip, and don’t forget to share your fabulous experiences on tour with your colleagues, friends and family!  Furthermore, let’s all work together to create a real buzz around our tour and take this opportunity to engage with our broader insurance industry through our social media pages.

Don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn and use the hashtags  #IIGlobal2019 and #PassionPurposePride during the lead-up to, and throughout the tour.

I would like to take this chance to remind you all that we are not only representing our respective organisations throughout this tour, but also our personal brand, the IIG, and of course our country.  Please can I ask that we treat each other with kindness and respect, and ensure we project professional and appropriate behaviour at all times.

I hope you are all as excited for this international experience as I am.  We are truly very privileged to work in an industry that affords us these amazing opportunities.  Most of all, I hope that this trip enhances your PASSION, PURPOSE and PRIDE for insurance, and if just one young person you know chooses insurance as a career after following your journey, then we are helping to change the future of insurance!
