Congratulations to the YIP’s for an incredible NT Insurance coverage Convention – Prof. Allan Manning’s Weblog


In 2011, it was identified that the insurance coverage trade within the Northern Territory was actually battling skilled improvement for members of the occupation within the Prime Finish.

Luke Harris, then of TIO (now MGA NT), and I developed a plan to create a not for revenue convention to be held in Darwin which might permit the insurance coverage group to attend a neighborhood occasion, without charge to them, reasonably than the massive funding in money and time to journey interstate. The then CEO of TIO, Richard Harding, (now the CEO of icare) instantly got here on board.

The First Northern Territory Insurance coverage Convention was held in August 2012 and from reminiscence 173 delegates attended. Peter O’Brien, Erik Kroon, Steve Manning and I all spoke, and on account of the success of the convention, it was agreed it will develop into an annual occasion. I’m proud to say that LMI have supported the convention yearly, with Steve and I each delivering a session on the convention.

Final week was the eleventh annual Northern Territory Insurance coverage Convention, and it was great to see how the convention has grown. I didn’t get to listen to the variety of convention attendees however did study that 350 attended the gala dinner for the Norther Territory Insurance coverage Awards.

The organising of the convention has been handed over to the Northern Territory chapter of the Younger Insurance coverage Professionals, headed by native president, Travis Saxby of TIO, and I can’t praise the committee sufficient: they did an incredible job. The convention attracted 30 sponsors which meant that those who attended the training and improvement periods, did so without charge to them or their employer. One thing that I imagine is exclusive in Australia.

Effectively completed to the convention group at Mojo Collective. One other first fee convention to your credit score.

Earlier than the award ceremony kicked off, I used to be requested by the committee and the gifted MC Nathan Strempel to ship a tribute to WA barrister Greg Pynt who has been a speaker on the convention yearly since its inception. Sadly we misplaced Greg a month again, and it was coronary heart warming to see his contribution to the previous success of the convention acknowledged.
