Why do you need to do CPD hours?

As a professional, it is important to continue learning, no matter what level of qualification you reach. Further to that, it’s a regulatory requirement. Introduced early in 2018, the relatively new directive means you, plus any other advisors you may employ, must complete a minimum of 15 hours learning time if you don’t have any Insurance qualifications. If you do, it’s a minimum of 35, with at least 21 of those being structured. What counts as structured? Webinars/Seminars Courses – either online…

Breakin’ Up is Hard to Do

TEn Director, James Sharp, shares his opinion on Brexit Originally published in Insurance Age 8/11/18 Breakin’ Up is Hard to Do The immortal words of Neil Sedaka have, perhaps, never achieved the same level of fiscal poignancy as now they do, thanks to Brexit.

Hidden Talent

In July 2018, TEn Director James Sharp was invited by Insurance Age to share his hidden talent with the industry. “My ‘hidden talent’, now buried under a few extra kilograms, was Fencing. Not garden perimeters, nor the activity undertaken by purveyors of stolen goods, but with swords. I was first drawn to Fencing by the relative warmth of my school’s gymnasium, by comparison with the playing fields outside. February 1963 saw my initiation to the game of Rugby, amid arctic winds, sleet and snow.…
