President's Message

Welcome to the Insurance Institute of Mid Kent.

I’ve been an active member of our Local Institute council for around 8 years now and in that time have watched the presidents before me make such an incredible impact in the role. I’m so honoured to now follow them and lead The Mid-Kent CII for the next twelve months.

The theme for my year will be Diversity and Inclusion, something which I am so passionate about. I’m so proud of our industry and how it’s open to anyone of any background but, for us to remain relevant and service our customers in the best possible way, we need to represent society and there’s absolutely no denying that we have a way to go currently. I know that businesses are taking this challenge seriously and we, as your Local Institute, want to support this through our events, projects and training. We are currently planning our inaugural ‘D&I Festival’ to be held later in the summer, so do keep your eyes peeled for more on that.

I am keen to get our younger members more involved in networking events around the region so they can reap the benefits of this wonderful industry. Insurance and Finance careers are built on relationships and networks, things which have become harder to create since the pandemic and the new remote/ hybrid working practices. Our Local Institute aims to provide that helping hand, and a safe space for all members to come to when they need additional support or guidance so please don’t hesitate to reach out should there be anything you need.
