President's Message

  • President

A warm welcome to The Insurance Institute of Perth and Dundee website; it is an honour to act as your President for the next two years (2020 - 2022). 

I am truly humbled to be taking on this role as President of The Perth and Dundee Insurance Institute, following in the footsteps of such fantastic predecessors. 

Whilst this hand over comes during unprecedented times, we will endeavour to continue to support our members. I start my tenure with the first teleconference AGM held by Perth and Dundee and this trend will continue with a programme of webinar CPD events to see us through until we can commence face to face sessions. 

During my time I will continue to support the development of the CPD offering delivered by our fantastic CPD sub-committee. We will also continue to deliver supported learning Initiatives support on the path to obtaining CII Diploma and exam revision for our PFS colleagues with 2020 also sees the inclusion of a Diploma to Advanced Diploma course. Additionally we will also continue to run our very well received claims club initiative introduced by our previous president Frank McGaffney. 

In addition to our membership engagement, I would like to focus on the future of the industry, liaising with local schools and colleges to encourage school leavers to consider our industry as a career choice. 

None of this is achievable without the support of our dedicated council members who work tirelessly behind the scenes, volunteering their time and efforts over and above their busy day jobs to deliver a full CPD offering to our local members. I truly believe we have an exceptional council who demonstrate passion and professionalism in supporting the wider community. 

Our local council meet monthly and are always open to new members to come on board and are always open to member feedback. So if there is anything you would like us to provide, or fancy joining us on council, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

I look forward to seeing you at one of our future event.
