And there we have it… series seven of The Insurance Apprentice ended on a high note as Fiona Fitzpatrick, Managing Director of IF Administrators was announced as the winner. And what a season it was!



And there we have it… series seven of The Insurance Apprentice ended on a high note as Fiona Fitzpatrick, Managing Director of IF Administrators was announced as the winner. And what a season it was!

With the series going completely virtual we were super nervous about the end results… would virtual work? Would we get the best of the best in terms of contestants? Would we get the maximum learning experience for all? Would the sponsors think it’s good enough? Would we get the same incredible viewership and social media interaction? And the answer is an overwhelming yes to all the questions! It worked… and it worked very well!

Catch-up
If you have not seen all the episodes, you have missed a lot. But it’s not too late, as all the episodes are on YouTube or on our website. The episodes were extremely content rich, and you can also earn Continuous Professional Development (CPD) hours from watching the episodes and completing the questions on the FAnews CPD portal.

Social media
Episodes were shared live on Facebook and YouTube and we had the most amazing interactions during each episode. It was next level…

A must read
At the end of each season we always put an incredible magazine together, which is a little bit about the competition, and a lot more about our industry. Do remember that one of the reasons we are running this competition, is because we want to change perceptions about insurance, and we want to attract young people to the insurance industry. The magazine addresses these issues, and we hear amazing stories from young people working in our industry. Please use this tool… because that is what it is… share it as wide and as far as possible; share it on your social media platforms, share it with your kids and their friends, share it with the interns in your company… just share it! It’s a funky design and an easy read… please help us to share the good stuff, because we have an awesome industry. We wrapped this series up… it’s over but guess what… it has already started again.

Applications are open and are standing on about 30 applications already! So, if you are keen, or you know amazing people who just need a bit of a push to do something that will change their lives forever, then please motivate them to enter! You must be under 35 and you need four or more years’ experience in short term insurance, any part of it… just do it people! Apply here.

Conversations with sponsors will start soon, so if you are keen to find out more, I would love to hear from you.
We are changing lives! And we are changing perceptions! And you can be a part of this!

QUESTION

Do you believe this is the toughest period for financial advice in many years?

ANSWER

Yes, it’s hard to navigate the challenges and difficult to adapt. I’m struggling.
No, I have managed to navigate the challenges and have adapted. I’m good.
50/50. I just feel like whether we like it or not, we have to ready ourselves for change… be resilient and scale for the future. It’s not about survival of the fittest anymore but survival of the quickest. We just have to move on with life.
