Besides the Winter chills, June has brought some really great Education workshops for our members,
which have had record attendance. We are so pleased when we have a great turnout, as this is testament
that we are doing right by our members. With exam month well underway, we hope that our members have
taken advantage of our workshops, as we have had some highly experienced speakers with a wealth of
knowledge to share. As always, we welcome all feedback on our events, so please don't hesitate to contact us.
We listen to our members, always striving to improve!

Please be sure to keep an eye out for our Newsflashes, Facebook posts, as well as our Website for up to date
calendar events. July looks to be just as exciting for us!

Thanks and regards,

Candice Mentasti

Education News – June 2016

Dear Valued Members,

From the Education team, our sincere thank you to all our delegates, sponsors and speakers for supporting us and making our workshops such a success. We are extremely pleased with the interaction and the knowledge that is shared and gained at these events. We will continue striving to arrange workshops that will add value to you and make our industry the best that it can be.

The Milpark Open Day held on 27 May 2016 at the Milpark Westville Campus went off extremely well and the information shared was informative for those of you that are studying currently. We are disappointed with the attendance but we are aware that most students were engaged with exam and study leave during this time. Milpark will host another similar session towards the later part of this year prior to 2017 Registrations.

The Engineering, Construction and Contract Works Workshop was held on Friday, 3 June 2016. Our sponsors for this event were Hollard, Compendium Insurance Group and Infiniti. Our speakers, Keith Bester, Paul Lewis and Steve du Toit were very knowledgeable and displayed their excellent presentation skills which kept our audience enthralled throughout the event. An extremely well supported workshop and we apologise to those members that we had to turn out due to lack of space. We will certainly add this to our calendar again next year

Our last workshop for the month IISA Motor Insurance – Global Best Practices took place on 8 June 2016. Presenters Heidi Dias(M&F), Gerhad Genis (Santam) and Garth de Klerk(SAICB), put together some superb presentations and we thank them for their considerable efforts and level of professionalism exhibited in respect of their involvement and enormous contribution to this Motor Forum. Thank to PG Glass for their kind sponsorship of the lucky draw prizes.

Please check out our Facebook page, Website and Twitter for more information and pictures of these events.

Our upcoming workshop for July is Liability on 01 July. We look forward to interacting with you again at this event.

Should you wish to sponsor any of our events or have any suggestions, please feel free to contact us.

Please note our calendar of events as there are some changes in dates especially with regards to Bootcamp.

Until next month stay safe.

Your Education Team : Vanitha, Lynda, Theresa, Tamara & Malcolm
