On February 28, 2018, Humber College welcomed Trevor Buttrum, Manager of the Career Connections department from the Insurance Institute of Canada, and five industry thought leaders to speak with students from the Insurance Management Program. The event provided students with the opportunity to listen, network and engage with industry leaders on their valuable insight, experience and career advice. This was the first career event for the Insurance Management Postgraduate Program, which resulted in a tremendous success. Industry leaders that attended included representatives from Intact, Cooperators, Travelers and MiFinancial Solutions. This included a focus on disciplines that emphasized claims, management, sales and underwriting.
Overall, the event was very successful, laying the ground for this new program's Career Fair scheduled to take place in late March.
Special thanks goes out to Peter Madott, faculty (Annette Palalas, Troy Bynoe and John McNeil) and Trevor Buttrum from the Insurance Institute of Canada for helping organize and conduct such a successful event.
