Incisive Media bags four shortlist nods at the 2020 Awards Awards

The inaugural Women In Insurance Awards has secured the nomination in the best new event category, following up Incisive’s success with the Women in Investment Awards in 2019.

The Financial Services Forum – which Incisive acquired in 2019 – gets the nod for its Marketing Effectiveness Awards in two categories, the best sector specific event and best longstanding awards event.

Last but by no means least, Incisive’s indefatigable event operations team makes the grade in the best awards team category.

The four shortlist nominations highlight an impressive event performance for Incisive in 2019, when event revenue exceeded 50% of total turnover for the first time.

“We are delighted to be shortlisted in these categories at the Awards Awards at a time when face-to-face events are under pressure,” said Incisive Media CEO Jonathon Whiteley. “It is recognition from our peers of our tenacious championing of diversity and the continued success of the Financial Services Forum, plus of course the tremendous contribution made by our event operations team. The nominations are testament to the hard work and innovation that takes place across our business to deliver outstanding and meaningful events for our audiences.”

The 2020 Awards Awards take place at The Pavilion at the Tower of London on July 3. To see the full shortlist go to awardsawards.co.uk/finalists-2020

Incisive Media launches the Women in Insurance Awards 2019

The insurance industry has made significant strides down the road to creating a genuinely diverse, equal opportunities sector but the consensus is there is still a long way to go, especially when it comes to narrowing the gender pay gap, pushing for more flexible working arrangements, and increasing the number of women in senior positions. Those who make it to the top are outstanding role models but there are still far too few women at the top.

These awards will honour the inspiring achievements of women across all parts of the general insurance sector and will also help shape the discussion around how we can improve diversity within the sector as we highlight some of the most forward-thinking initiatives. We hope these will help move the diversity agenda forward, especially for women, as everyone knows there are still many issues to be addressed and challenges overcome. Showcasing excellence and achievement is a vital tool in the continuing battle to establish equality across all parts of the industry and in all roles.

“I’m delighted that Incisive Media have launched the Women in Insurance Awards – the first of its kind in this industry. We are passionate about diversity as a business and our keen to see further recognition for inspiring achievements of women recognised in sectors which are currently under-represented. We hope these awards will help to bring about cultural change and tackle the gender imbalance in the insurance industry,” said Incisive Media’s managing director – events Simone Broadhurst.

David Worsfold, chair of the judges – Women in Insurance Awards, commented: “I have watched women break into senior management and non-traditional roles across the insurance industry but there is still a lot to be done. It is a very different – and much better – industry as a result. Showcasing the achievements of women across the market is a great way of helping the industry tell that story of progress but we also want it to inspire others to make their mark too. These awards will be a celebration of achievement and a starting point for taking the vital next steps towards genuine and lasting equality.”

The awards have already recruited a panel of 21 expert judges and the nomination process opens today, Monday 20th May. The deadline for nominations is Friday 28th June.
