Session 4: A day in the life of an Insurer

What is the IIM Professional Development Programme?
Our Professional Development Programme is a series of introductory lectures designed at targeting those new to the insurance industry in Manchester. First launched at the IIM's CPD Masterclass 2014 in association with the IIM’s CPD Committee, the programme will provide attendees with an exclusive insight into the insurance world as a whole.
Primarily aimed at those who are not yet qualified, the programme will offer support to those beginning their studies as well as individuals just looking to get more involved with the CII and strengthen their understanding of the insurance industry.

Session 4: A day in the life of an Insurer

- Stephen Bridge: Graduate of the CII's New Generation Programme and Commercial Underwriter at LV=
- Tim Sumner: Underwriter at Allianz Insurance

Each speaker will provide a unique overview into their career thus far, and the session will finish with a question and answer session.

Who should attend? Those new to the insurance industry in Manchester, or not yet qualified.
