CII launches professional focus CPD conferences


The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), in collaboration with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), is launching a series of nationwide professional focus CPD conferences for members working in the insurance profession.  The events are free for CII members to attend and are being launched to coincide with the new EU legislation, the Insurance Distribution Directive, on the 1st October 2018. 

Topics covered will include:

  • Transformation of the Profession in the Digital Age
  • Cyber
  • The Grenfell tragedy
  • Insurance Distribution Directive
  • Influencing with integrity
  • AI and the future of employment
  • Easily dealing with conflict and stress
  • Financial Conduct Authority – key focuses for 2018/19

The programme of conferences take place around the country on the following dates:

September 2018

Bristol 5th, London 12th, Scotland 18th

October 2018

Lee Travis, Partnerships and Member Engagement Director for the CII said: “We are looking forward to joining forces with the FCA to host these Professional Focus CPD conferences. The Insurance Distribution Directive, which comes into force in October, requires brokers and employees of insurance companies that sell insurance to do at least 15 hours of training and CPD per year as well as other key changes. These conferences will provide members with details of this new legislation and will help them to understand what is required of them along with the opportunity for discussion around the most up-to-date developments in our sector.”
