07 Mar Speed Dating with the Godfathers of the Insurance Industry
Speed dating with a difference
The Insurance Young Gun’s (IYG) first event of 2018, which took place at Jamie’s Italian in Melrose Arch, involved the hosting of 15 ‘godparents’ of the insurance industry for a speed-dating evening with just shy of 70 young and ambitious IYG members. These IYG-ers were divided into pre-selected groups and given the opportunity to ‘speed date’ with three different CEOs, presenting them with the unique opportunity to network, build relationships and enhance their career profiles.
The IYG Council and Insurance Institute of South Africa (IISA) CEO, Thokozile Mahlangu, opened the evening by addressing this dynamic group of under 35s, emphasising the importance of finding a suitable mentor to help them build and enhance their presence within the industry. The evening was favourably received by all those present, including the CEOs.
