Episode two, task two of The Insurance Apprentice, sponsored by Aon South Africa, sees a hot debate with some heated audience engagement as the apprentices are tasked by Judge Simon, Judge Nadia, and guest Judge Terence Williams, Chief Executive Officer at Aon South Africa with presenting their argument in favor of, or against, the motion of the topic ‘increasing the retirement age is good for the sustainability of the insurance industry’.
The affirmative team, consisting of Nabeelah Maharaj (Santam), Sebastian Reddy (Old Mutual Insure), Vicky Sebothoma (Aon Re Africa) and Yaseen Essop (RBS Insurance Brokers), debated FOR an increased retirement age and the negative team consisting of Amogelang Kgaladi (FNB Insure), JP Ellis (Constantia Insurance), Kanchaal Mahabeer (Power Brokers & Financial Services), Memory Zimba (Centriq) and Siphamandla Dube (Hollard), debated AGAINST an increased retirement age.
Which team won the debate? Which apprentice/s fell victim to elimination?
Often times when we were in school, advancing through subjects, we had questions of relevance of the content we studied in certain subjects to our future careers. This link is not always obvious.
In episode one, task one, sponsored by Inseta, the apprentices Amogelang Kgaladi (FNB Insure), JP Ellis (Constantia Insurance), Kanchaal Mahabeer (Power Brokers & Financial Services), Memory Zimba (Centriq), Nabeelah Maharaj (Santam), Sebastian Reddy (Old Mutual Insure), Siphamandla Dube (Hollard), Vicky Sebothoma (Aon Re Africa) and Yaseen Essop (RBS Insurance Brokers) have the opportunity to influence grade 11 learners at Westbury Secondary School in Johannesburg.
This year the apprentices imparted skills and knowledge to a selected group of teachers and students highlighting the importance of particular subjects to insurance and its various careers.
Did they win the learners over?
