Winter is well and truly on its way. Brrrrrr. Insurers are now sending out emails on how to protect our properties and employees, all very interesting articles and an indication that the cold weather is on its way!
How has the past month or so been for IASG?
We’ve been busy with our Charities Afternoon Tea which was a great success and very well supported by our community. We even managed to raise £1000 for the Insurance Charities. Our appreciation to Mandy Cochrane and her team at Axa for hosting and looking after everyone so well.
Our young professionals have also concluded their selection process for our very first Young Professional of the Year Award. The winner will be announced shortly - a very exciting time for everyone involved.
Our calendar of learning events continues to be well supported, check out the website for up and coming events and register early to avoid disappointment.
The Edinburgh Institute Dinner is on Friday 7th November, and I wish Rosemary (Chair) a successful night. We have our Dinner on 28th November and I look forward to welcoming everyone and hope you have a great evening.
Glasgow continues to host significant events, and this month (9th November) sees the Hydro hosting the MTV EMA Awards. According to the BBC News this event could potentially boost the City of Glasgow’s economy by up to £10m.
Feels like a quiet month, or is it the calm before the year end storm of activity in our market!
