Ron Shorter award goes national

Young insurance professionals in Tasmania, SA and WA can enter this year’s Ron Shorter Memorial Award for Professionalism in Public Speaking.

The Australian Insurance Law Association (AILA) program began in NSW in 2012 and expanded to Victoria in 2015 and Queensland in 2016.

Twenty of the best entrants from each state will take part in one of three public speaking workshops and then complete a two-minute presentation, on which they will be judged.

The top three in each state will enter state finals, and the winners will attend the Asia-Pacific Insurance Conference in Singapore on October 18-20.

Meanwhile, the AILA Queensland branch and Barry.Nilsson Lawyers have created the inaugural Barry.Nilsson AILA Rising Star Award.

Nominees must work in the insurance industry – excluding law firms – and be aged under 30 or have fewer than five years’ industry experience. They need not be AILA members.

Successful nominees will be asked to provide a written statement describing what they see as the biggest opportunity for insurers and why.

The winner will be notified by May 19 and announced at the AILA Queensland Insurance Law Intensive Connecting the Dots event.
