If you were to make a list of good things that came out of the Covid-19 lockdowns, InsureTalk would be right up at the top of it.
“We started InsureTalk in April 2020 in response to the industry’s need for a virtual conference, where insurance professionals could meet to hear from experts from all sectors of the industry and earn their CPD in the process,” says CN&CO Events head, Llewellyn du Plessis.
Now, two years later, the webinar attracts between 1 000 and 1 500 people to each session.
“We’re thrilled by the success of InsureTalk,” adds Llewellyn. “The feedback we receive from delegates and sponsors alike tells us we’ve created a winning formula – a three-hour mix of education, motivation, inspiration and entertainment that’s free to attend on a monthly basis, 10 months of the year.
“Of course, none of it would be possible without our sponsors, to whom we are extremely grateful. Special mention must go to Santam, OMI, CIB, Global Choices, Munich Re and EasyEquities, who have given us massive sponsorship support over the past two years. We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to the IISA and Cover magazine, who have been our CPD and media partners respectively at every event.
“We’d also like to thank our superb MC, Nontuthuko “Nonnie” Mhlungu, who has been driving the show brilliantly for the past 18 months or so – always perfectly eloquent and professional. (The first few of instalments were expertly hosted by Simon Colman.) Both Nonnie and Simon are employed full-time by SHA and we’re hugely appreciative of their time.”
The future looks bright for the InsureTalk franchise.
“We have great plans for InsureTalk in the next few months,” says Llewellyn. “Keep an eye on your inbox for the latest news as it unfolds.”
“We look forward to welcoming you to the rest of this year’s sessions!”
