Meet the Market event – November 2023

MTM_Nov_2023

 

Another Successful Meet the Market Event! 

We would like to express our thanks to everyone who joined us for our Meet the Market event on 15 November. The event showcased Citynet’s services through presentations and insightful Q&A sessions led by our experts in various fields, including Property & Casualty, Professional Risks, Motor Fleet, and Underwriting.

A notable highlight of the day was the enlightening lecture delivered by Jason Ozin, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at PIB Group, focusing on the ever-relevant topic of the Cyber Threat Landscape. In a world where cyber threats pose significant risks, this session emphasized the importance of staying informed, being aware of potential consequences, and preparing for the inevitable in case of a security breach.

However, the true standout of the event was the guided tour of Lloyds of London, skilfully led by Mark Crisp and Marcus Simeoni. This exclusive experience offered our guests a rare glimpse into the inner workings of one of the world’s most prestigious insurance markets. While the 11th floor of the building was unfortunately closed to visitors, we hope that everyone found the tour to be both enlightening and educational.

We extend our sincere thanks to all our guests, staff members, and speakers for contributing to the success of our Meet the Market event. Here’s to ongoing learning, growth, and success in our dynamic and ever-evolving industry! 🚀

Although this marks the conclusion of this year’s Meet the Market events, stay tuned for more exciting events next year. If you’re interested in participating, simply drop us an email, and stay tuned for confirmed dates to follow.

A Successful Meet the Market Event! 

Citynet’s Meet the Market event, held on 18th October 2023, was a resounding success, and we want to express our thanks to everyone who joined us for this remarkable gathering.

The event showcased Citynet’s services, with presentations and Q&A sessions by our experts from the Property & Casualty, Professional Risks, Motor Fleet, and Underwriting divisions.

One of the standout moments of the day was the enlightening lecture on Cyber Insurance delivered by Scott and James from DUAL UK. Their presentation served as a reminder of the constant evolution and innovation within our dynamic industry. In a world where cyber threats continue to pose a significant risk to businesses and individuals, this session highlighted the importance of staying informed and prepared.

However, the true highlight of the event was the Lloyds of London tour, expertly guided by Mark Crisp, Tiku Patel, and Colin Reid. This unique experience provided our guests with a rare glimpse into the inner workings of one of the most prestigious insurance markets in the world. We hope that everyone who had the privilege of participating in the tour found it to be an eye-opening and educational experience.

We extend our sincere thanks to all our guests, partners, and speakers for making our Meet the Market event a resounding success. Here’s to continuous learning, growth, and success in our dynamic and ever-evolving industry! 🚀

Unite against Dementia for the Insurance Day of Giving!

IUAD_2019_Citynet_web

 

Insurance Day of Giving” gets Citynet Insurance Brokers involved once again in the fight against Dementia.

We have had a tremendous day at Citynet HQ, raising funds for the Insurance Day of Giving 2019’.

Almost half of the 300,000 people working in the UK insurance sector will be affected by dementia either directly or through a loved one. Despite this, a great deal of stigma still remains. By bringing dementia into the conversation, we can raise vital awareness and show colleagues that they don’t have to face dementia alone.

Last year, the Day of Giving raised an incredible £70,000 for research into the cause, care, cure, and prevention of dementia. This year the goal is £100,000.

This campaign, meant to help people affected, is part of the Insurance United Against Dementia (IUAD) and has now the backing of more than 50 insurance firms. As an Alzheimer’s Society initiative, this event is aiming to raise £10 million in the next five years to help fund their world-leading research to improve care and ultimately find a cure against this cruel disease, empowering people affected to live the lives they want.

In the spirit of collaboration, Citynet and PIB Group have united for the second year to raise funds with every employee committed to helping spread awareness of what dementia is, as well as where you or your insurance colleagues can find support if affected by this killer disease.

We are extremely glad to announce that Citynet’s together with PIB Group companies have raised a total of £10,000 for this years IUAD.

One Industry. One goal! Let’s all unite to take on the 21st century’s biggest killer!

#MacmillanCoffeeMorning at Citynet HQ

#MacmillanCoffeeMorning

 

The #MacmillanCoffeeMorning has become a ‘tradition’ that started almost 30 years ago, in 1990.

Initially, it was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It proved to be very effective and since the Macmillan Coffee Morning event has become a yearly ‘tradition’ raising over £200 million.

Last year alone, this event has raised an incredible £26,914,382 towards this great cause.

On the 27th September 2019, people all over the country took part in an activity that was tasty, fun and also helped raise funds and awareness for a truly worthy cause.

Cancer can be devastating news for anyone. With one in two of us facing this ‘enemy’ at some point in our lives, the money raised at the #MacmillanCoffeeMorning event throughout the UK will help everyone with cancer to live life as fully as they can.

Here at Citynet Insurance Brokers, all our staff got involved again in the world’s biggest #MacmillanCoffeeMorning.

Each and every one of us has made a special effort by baking, buying and bringing in the most delicious treats. As a result, we are very proud to announce that the Citynet Insurance Brokers team has raised a total of £592.74 that will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Well done everyone and what a team effort!

Let’s change lives with every slice!

Citynet’s second year of success at City v Wharf 5k run!

City-v-Wharf-5k-RUN-Web

 

The City v Wharf Challenge is an annual 5k run where London’s two major business districts (and a who’s who of the financial and professional services sector) go head-to-head in a flat, fast 5k run in Victoria Park

In our second year in attendance, Citynet run under the PIB Group team consisted of 25 runners.

The sun was very much shining on us (and it was pretty warm by the time the starter gun went off at 6pm) but the heat didn’t deter our runners. There were some fantastic achievements across the board. A special mention goes to Will Offer (PIB Employee Benefits), Callum Wallace (Cobra London Markets) and Alex Broggio (Citynet Insurance Brokers) who achieved great race times.

In addition to the gruelling training, the team also aimed to raise money for Insurance United Against Dementia and the total has exceeded £400 so far.

You can view the Justgiving page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/citywharf19-pib.

Full results can be viewed here (search PIB to view ours): https://thefixevents.com/the-cityvwharf-5k-run-challenge

The team consisted of athletes from Citynet Insurance Brokers, PIB Group, PIB Insurance Brokers, PIB Employee Benefits, Cobra London Markets, and Q Underwriting.
