Tysers, working with the TMPAA, is proud to sponsor the “Targeting Talent Trophy” which looks to provide a selected individual, from a Program Administrator member of the Association, the opportunity to travel to London for a 10 day educational assignment during the spring of 2015.

The selected applicant will leave London with a comprehensive understanding of how Program Business is transacted in the London market, spending time with the Tysers’ broking team and various Lloyd’s syndicates. There will be a focus on all aspects of transacting Program Business in London from client introduction through placement to accounting and claims.

This educational assignment is targeting applicants with:

  • Minimum of 3 years experience with a Program Administrator
  • Potential future carrier relationship responsibilities
  • Interest in broadening their experience to include knowledge of the London Market

Sponsorship will include flights to London, transfers and accommodation for the duration of the stay.

TMPAA members interested in this opportunity will need to complete the Targeting Talent Trophy Application and submit by September 12, 2014. Based on individual responses, the top 10 applications will be selected. From this group of 10, one application will be randomly selected as the 2014 Targeting Talent Trophy winner. The winner will be announced at the 14th Annual Summit in October.

Last year’s winner Scott Young from Bellingham Underwriters said about the experience:

“The Tyser’s Targeting Talent trip was an amazing opportunity for me personally and for Bellingham Underwriters. Aside from the immense cultural experience of being in London with the hospitality of the people at Tysers (which was second to none), the trip broadened my knowledge of insurance and has provided me with opportunities to further my career. Tysers has proven that the best way to truly understand and appreciate the London Market is to be immersed in it firsthand.

The trip gave me the chance to spend a number of days sitting in the Underwriting Box at Lloyd’s which allowed me to experience the culture of Lloyd’s and also to see the relationship and trust that is forged between the Broker and Underwriter. Tysers was also able to provide plenty of one on one time with Underwriters which allowed me time to foster relationships by sharing underwriting philosophies and find common ground in which to transact business.”
