President's Message


Welcome to the Insurance Institute of Norwich.  

I am honoured, for the second time, to step into the role as President of The Insurance Institute of Norwich, succeeding our outgoing president, Sharon Theobald. Sharon has done a wonderful job over the last 12 months steering our local institute, fostering a council environment that is both productive and enjoyable. Our institute boasts an exceptional council, and we have of opportunities for people to get involved to support their personal and professional growth. I am fortunate to have the backing of such a supportive council and to benefit from the wealth of experience within our diverse membership, many of whom are former presidents themselves.

Additionally, I am lucky to have Kris Locker as my deputy president this year and look forward to working with him over the coming months.

Looking ahead, our goals for the coming year are: we aim to increase our presence within the local community, offer enhanced networking opportunities, more in-person events, and increased engagement with our membership.

Furthermore, we have selected The Insurance Charities as our charity partner for the year. This amazing charity provides help and support to those working in the insurance industry in the UK and Ireland.

I look forward to working a President for the next year and hope to engage with as many local members as possible!
