If you’re an insurance professional looking for a fresh approach to acquiring your CPD hours, entertaining your clients or building a strong and powerful business network then The-Women’s-Insurance-Net-Work (TWIN) could be just what you need.
TWIN holds three insurance-focused seminars per annum, dedicated to developing senior and up-and-coming female talent by coupling professional education with the opportunity to interact with senior industry figures.
Our residential meetings span 24 hours, enabling delegates to “switch off” from the daily workplace microenvironment and re-focus on wider issues. Each program is designed by TWIN’s Management Board to include a varied and interesting range of insurance-centric topics, appealing to insurance professionals from different disciplines and catering for both life and non-life practitioners.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Members include accountants, actuaries, lawyers, HR professionals and underwriters. With an increased focus on CPD requirements, TWIN conferences provide an excellent value-for-money option to help actuaries and accountants to meet their professional obligations.
Female-interest, “wider fields” sessions are always popular, featuring successful women from other walks of life; Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives or gender-specific management issues. Such sessions often take place after dinner, provoking lively and engaged debate.
Building confidence through lively, engaged debate
A key feature of our meetings is the time dedicated to debate. Speakers are invited to present formally for approximately 45 minutes, with the same time allowed for questions and discussion. The maximum number of delegates admitted to our seminars is 45: in our experience the optimal size to facilitate engaged, high quality and spontaneous debate. Our male speakers frequently comment on the non-aggressive, intelligent nature of debate.
The birth of TWIN
The-Women’s-Insurance-Net-Work was founded in February 2007 following the successful model of Peter Le Beau’s Net-Work and subsequently The-Pensions-Net-Work (founded in March 2006 by Malcolm Small). TWIN was co-founded by Helen Crofts & Malcolm Small. Helen was TWIN’s Chairman from inception until May 2016.
