President's Message

It is a great honour for myself and my business Needham Insurance Services to have been elected your President for the next twelve months.

Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak the Coventry Insurance Institute held a virtual AGM where we conducted the necessary business and laid the groundwork for the next twelve months. I would like to thank the other members of Council who have shown faith in me and we promise you that Coventry Insurance Institute will continue to thrive and be relevant for all of its members.

With that in mind each month we arrange for Lunchtime Lectures to be held on a variety of subjects and I would encourage business owners to encourage their staff members to attend these. We are even holding some virtual ones until we are able to meet face to face again.

My nominated Charity for this year is Georgie's Gift which is a local charity very close to my heart and a charity that I have supported in the past by climbing Kilimanjaro and a charity I am supporting this year by running the London Marathon.

Please check out their website to see the amazing work they do: www.georgiesgift.org

As many of you know I am a very keen runner and I plan to hold a Fun Run for all of our members that wish to take part so please look out for this later on in the year.

Our Annual Dinner is already booked for next year at the Coombe Abbey Hotel in Coventry and this will be held on Friday 29th January 2021. This event always sells out very quickly so if you are interested in pre-booking please email enquiries@needhaminsurance.co.uk to register your interest.

As a final footnote I would ask that all members engage with the Institute and look to attend some of the events that we arrange, keep an eye out for the e-flyers and I look forward to meeting you over the next 12 months.
