President's Message

I am honoured to have been appointed as President of the Insurance Institute of Sussex in what is definitely an interesting and challenging time for us all.

Recent events have led to a change in focus for my first months in the role and we are working hard to bring you remote support for both your professional development and personal wellbeing. I hope you find our new programme useful.  Please let me know if you have any suggestions for additional content over the coming months.  We will continue to adapt our subject matter as the situation evolves and in line with your feedback.

I am also enthusiastic about ensuring our members are aware of the support available to them from us, the Insurance industry and from the broader community in what are certain to be difficult months ahead. Please see our April 2020 email communication for the relevant contact details of local charities and assistance lines and do not hesitate to reach out to us at the email address below:

The Insurance Institute of Sussex:

Hopefully we will be able to return to our normal programme in the second half of the year and I am very much looking forward to seeing many of you personally at our varied events for both our CII and PFS members. We are extremely proud to support you all through professional qualifications and CPD, in development of your leadership and communication skills and to provide you with a social network that I believe will become more and more important if the trend towards home working perseveres.  I would also like to thank all of you for your support and attendance at our recent events and would like to encourage you to participate (be it virtually or physically) in the coming months.

Finally I would be delighted to hear from any of you who might be interested in becoming involved with helping our council and this community going forward.

Please contact me on my email address below.

Stay engaged, stay safe and I wish you all the best for the coming year.

Neal Hallett

President, Insurance Institute of Sussex
