24 November 2021 - Insurance networking in the City of London

After a break of some two years as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, we were pleased to return once again to the City of London for an evening insurance networking event, which was held at Davy's at Plantation Place in Mincing Lane.

These events are organised by the Eastbournian Society to bring together Old Eastbournians, parents and current pupils with a common interest in a particular profession or industry.

Those working in insurance were able to offer their advice and expertise to pupils keen to explore their career options. 

The guest speaker was current College parent Danyalle Brinsmead, who is a divisional director in the Financial Lines Group in Howden. Originally from Australia, she is now based in London, where for the last 20 years she has focused on placing insurance programmes for private equity firms and their investee companies.

Our thanks go to all those OEs and parents who came along and passed on their knowledge and experience to the sixth form pupils who travelled up from Eastbourne.
