We caught up with Francois De Jager, Head – Continuous Improvement at Hollard Insure. Here’s what he had to say.. 







Have you ever travelled overseas before and which is your favourite destination?

Yes, Greece was my favourite so far!


Why have you decided to join #IIGlobal2019?

I was very fortunately volunteered by Hollard to join.


If you had one travel tip for first time travellers what would it be?

Don’t eat the food in the blown up plastic bags that they sell in the streets of Thailand!


What are you looking forward to the most on this trip?

Seeing San Francisco, and I am a proper nerd.. to see and learn from what the US insurers are doing (gets me excited!)


Tell us something fun about yourself that most people don’t know?

I may be quite a lot older than I look.


What is the one thing that you cannot travel without?

I can travel pretty much without anything other than my passport and wallet..


If you could live in any other country where would you live?

USA (beware.. I may not take the flight back!)


What country has the best food?

Not too sure, but I can definitely say that the Pizzas we had in Italy was the worst!… Wait, no.. the ice-cream in Italy is AMAZING!!


What is your least favourite thing about travelling?

Running to catch flights that I am late for.


How will u be putting the SA in the USA?

I will bring my Afrikaans accent wiff.
