Under the theme of ‘Premium’, the series, now in its 6th year, will feature technical insurance presentations from industry experts alongside talks focusing on the soft-skills involved in business and management success. The initiative, developed in partnership with local specialist event and management development consultancy, Podiem, is quickly gathering momentum as those participating reap the rewards of this two pronged approach.

‘NMU is delighted to support the IINI Masterclass series. The Masterclasses provide an invaluable source of information and ideas for the industry and we look forward to attending another hugely successful series’.

Speaking at the launch event on September 15th Brendan Mooney, President of the IINI, explained ‘In the face of a continuously demanding business environment it is essential that local insurance firms and professionals continue to seek new and improved ways of doing things. Most people in the insurance profession recognise that in addition to the importance of upskilling on the technical aspects of their business, it is equally important to address other ‘softer’ skill sets. In response to this, the Premium Masterclass Series provides updates on technical insurance topics as well as insights into key business disciplines such as culture, communication and service’.
