President's Message

Welcome to all,

I am delighted to have been elected President of The Insurance Institute of Royal Tunbridge Wells (IIRTW) for the 2020-21 year, which coincides with our 70th anniversary.

A challenging year is ahead with all that Covid-19 has brought us - having to work from home, get to grips with more technology and remain socially distant. Despite these challenges I hope to continue with the great work of our council and Past Presidents by providing our membership with relevant CPD albeit remotely for the time being. Hopefully when lockdown relaxes we can also provide social and networking events and our Annual Dinner which is scheduled for 12 March 2021.

Our council has agreed that our charity fund raising efforts to support The Insurance Charities and the RTW Mayor’s charities, can also extend to an additional charity chosen by the President each year. I am pleased to announce I have chosen the Hospice in the Weald, a local charity dear to my heart.

The Insurance Institute council includes both CII and PFS members ensuring we promote and encourage networking, education and Continuing Professional Development for all those working in the local Insurance and Financial Services Industry. In particular we deliver training in Soft skills, Financial Services, General Insurance, Regulatory & Compliance subjects and Exam revision sessions. We work closely with our neighbouring Institutes to ensure our members can make full use of all the benefits and services we provide.

Please do get in touch if there is anything else you would like us to cover or offer members.

Best regards and stay safe

Rebecca Eastwood

President & Dinner Secretary
