It was an honour to be asked to serve as your President for the 2014/15 Institute year and I hope to be able to follow up my predecessor Neil’s excellent work. Thanks to his efforts we now have a very strong Council with many new faces and new ideas, one of which has already happened in the form of our Family Fun Day. 

As both a local Institute and as a profession we still face many challenges as the economic and technological landscapes evolve so quickly. We need to be able to support our members whether they work from home, locally or further afield by offering a programme relevant to their professional development needs and whichever segment of the market they work in.

 As a Past President of the former Insurance Institute of Oxford I am especially keen to engage with our members living or working slightly further from Reading, hopefully by arranging at least one CPD event in Oxfordshire.

I am also keen to develop our links with the Thames Valley PFS so that some events can be run jointly, especially for soft skills that are relevant to all sectors.

We will of course continue our fundraising efforts for The Insurance Charities, the Motor Neurone Disease Association and my own nominated charity Adventure Plus to help rebuild the reputation of our profession as a positive force in the community.

Lastly I hope to continue to engage with our young members and also to encourage students in local schools or at university to view insurance as an attractive career option through participation in local events.

I look forward to meeting as many members as possible over the coming months at our events but if you have any suggestions or would like to get involved, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Don’t forget we are on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, do join, like or follow us.


Nigel Everett ACII, Chartered Insurance Practitioner

FLOOD CONFERENCE POSTPONED UNTIL NOVEMBER 2014-new date to be confirmed. We decided to postpone this event until later in the year to ensure that we are able to deliver up to date information regarding the Flood Re aspect of this presentation. Details to follow shortly. 

Our FAMILY FUN DAY  took place on Sunday 20th July at Palmer Park, Reading in aid of the Insurance Charities and Adventure Plus, our local nominated charity. We raised £370 on the day not as much as we would have liked but a respectable sum nonetheless. Thank you to all who took part, to the companies that donated prizes for the tombola- Arista, AXA, Finch Group, Independents and RSA for your support and donations and to the  Activities Committee led by Caroline Hargreaves who worked hard to put the event together. 

2014-15 Events Diary  now available for download on our forthcoming events page on this website.
