Ten reasons why Kurt loves the insurance industry

Following the success of the second edition of the 2016 Insurance Apprentice (where CN&CO were proud sponsors), FA News have just released their latest magazine (July 2016) edition which includes a special ‘Insurance Apprentice 2016’ insert. The insert recaps the 2016 instalment and provides feedback on the future of the industry. One of the features includes CN&CO shareholder and communications boss, Kurt Solomon’s top ten reasons why he loves the insurance industry (page 38).

Catch up on Kurt’s insights (we think point number 10 is particularly brilliant #people) as well as all the other in the latest FA News. Here is a link to the digital version of the magazine brought to you by the FA News team.

Applications for the next instalment of the The Insurance Apprentice 2017 will open on 1 July 2016. A new addition this year sees a Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban regional elimination round. As part of the show’s aim to get more applications and a bigger awareness for the next series, they will be hosting a #AskApprentice event where all possible entrants will have the chance to get all the answers they need to make that final decision to enter. Read more about it here.

Let us know – @cnandco – why you love the insurance industry and let’s keep the #InsuranceGreatness pumping!
