Friday night the New Zealand insurance industry recognised and rewarded the outstanding achievements and contributions of some of the country’s best and brightest professionals at ANZIIF’s Celebrating Success Awards Dinner.

Students who excelled in their studies were acknowledged with an ANZIIF's Academic Achievement Award, along with Senior Associates who recently completed their qualifications. The event also provided an opportunity to celebrate the outstanding achievements of those who have recently reached the prestigious Fellow CIP membership level.

Our very own Catherine Ellison, Senior Claims Consultant in Palmerston North won ANZIIF’s Academic Achievement ICNZ Marine Insurance Prize (GI508 Marine Underwriting Management).

Jacqui Black, Teri Davey, Marilyn Garth and Keir Scott also from Palmerston North and Katy McTeigue from our Wellington branch were Senior Associate recipients. Congratulations to them all.

Guest speaker Mike Allsop, Air New Zealand Captain shared his amazing experiences; Surviving a crash landing into the sea off the coast of Hawaii, conquering Mount Everest and running seven marathons in seven days on seven continents.

Mike spoke from the heart about the power of goal-setting to make just about anything possible, good advice for us all.
