25 Oct SHA Event
The third Insurance Young Guns (IYG) event was hosted and sponsored by SHA on 25 of May 2017. The event took place at HintHunt in Illovo, Johannesburg, with a total of 30 participants.
The day started with a discussion forum focusing on leadership versus management, the value of diversity in the workplace and tips on making a success in the insurance Industry. The discussions were led by a panel of ‘Young Gunners’ from Discovery Insure (Darryl Grater), Emerald (Sam Ngubeni) and AON (Langa Sigodi). Conversations were very informative and engaging, with the guests posing thoughtful questions and comments.
SHA’s IYG representative Nkejane Mofokeng,liability underwriter for the company, said, “The discussions left us all with some thoughts to take forward in our respective environments. The second part of the event was the HintHunt fun escape games where we were divided into five teams. The escape game involved each team being locked in a room for 60 minutes and having to solve the puzzles and mysteries in the game to escape.”
These were a lot of fun with three teams managing to solve the game and escape in time. After the games, the delegates were treated to lunch and, of course, that’s when the real networking began. “The day was a successful one with everyone feeling informed, having had fun and building relationships,” concluded Mofokeng.
