President's Message


I can’t quite believe that twelve months have passed since we gathered at The Grand Hotel for the 2022 Birmingham Insurance Institute AGM, where Stuart Harbourne handed over the reigns for me to become President. 

Following three years of Covid cancellations, CII face to face events started back up again almost simultaneously with my year starting. A steep learning curve followed, but I’m glad that I got to experience a “normal” year, if any year can be called that. 

Leading the second largest institute outside of London, which dates back 135 years has been a huge honour. One of the most rewarding parts of the role was getting to meet BII members, talk to them about what they want the institute to deliver and ensure we’re addressing the needs of our members.
