94th Annual Dinner

Sandy Park Conference & Banqueting Centre
Friday, 26 February 2016
6:30 pm – 1:00 am (UK time)

The 94th annual dinner will take place in the Exeter Suite of the Sandy Park Conference and Banqueting centre on Friday 26th February 2016.

The principal guest is the The Right Worshipful The Lord Mayor of Exeter, Councillor Olwen Foggin and the guest speaker is Gerry Loughney. Gerry is a former loss adjuster, and a well respected after dinner speaker and raconteur. Gerry is now extremely well-known as a leading business guru. After a hugely distinguished career in financial services, he has been speaking after dinner for many years. He likes to shine a mischievous searchlight on the inanities and pure daftness of big business and the people who seem to make it tick.

The CII National President will be represented by John Moore MBE, ACII, Chartered Insurance Broker Vice President of CII.

Table hosting opportunities are available for tables of 10 to 12 diners. Tables are available for less that 10 provided hosts don't mind possibly sharing a table with other diners.
