The 14th Workshop of LIAM Structured Internship Programme was held virtually from 6 to 8 July 2021 as part of the industry’s commitment to continue providing interns with opportunities to hone their soft skills.
The workshop was attended by 26 interns and was spread out to one full-day session on 6 July and two half-day sessions on 7 and 8 July 2021.
LIAM CEO, Mark O’Dell, took time off from his tight schedule to have a live session with the interns. LIAM Vice-President, Raymond Lew, also joined the live sharing session with the interns and shared his feedback to the questions posted by interns for the session. It was indeed an inspiring and insightful session for the interns as Raymond spent more than one hour sharing his thoughts on various topics.
Some of the topics include his views on how COVID-19 has changed the landscape of the life insurance industry and industries in the country. He also advised interns to maximize their potential, always give their best in everything they do and know the purpose of their actions in life in order to succeed in their future careers.
On the last day of the workshop, the interns were divided into six groups to present their slides to industry representatives from LIAM member companies based on six key topics assigned to them.
Overall, the workshop helped interns to sharpen their communication and presentation skills, as well as build their self-confidence in pursuing their future careers in the insurance industry.
