President's Message

President’s Message

 I am honoured to be President of the Insurance Institute of Sheffield for 2017/2018, following in the footsteps of many distinguished people.  With the help of all of my colleagues on Council and the wider membership of this Institute I want to continue the work and objectives of my predecessors and also encourage more people to become involved in the work of the Institute to represent the wide diversity of the Institute’s membership.

After moving back to Sheffield and transferring my CII membership to the Insurance Institute of Sheffield I attended an AGM in 2005 to find out what this Institute had to offer. I never thought of joining the Council much less that I would be asked to be President one day.  It’s strange how things work out, but it shows that if you are prepared to join in and make a contribution of time, effort, ideas and a great deal of perseverance, together with like-minded colleagues, then a lot can be achieved.

I look forward to meeting many of you and hearing from you if you have ideas for future activities, whether for study, CPD or social events.
