Market People Awards 2018
The Market People Awards 2018 - what a wonderful evening!
Over 170 professionals gathered together on 14th November 2018 at the prestigious One Moorgate Place for the annual Market People Awards.
The Awards, now in their third year, have become a firm favourite with the Market and this year saw the biggest ever attendance. The Market People Awards were created to recognise practitioners from across the Lloyd’s and London Insurance Market who are making a genuine contribute to the success of our unique trading area in the City of London. This year was no exception, with 15 incredible winners picking up their trophies at the Venetian themed celebration whilst raising several thousand pounds from a live auction and prize draw for the remarkable charity, Kids Inspire.
Winners this year included Dame Inga Beale for her outstanding contribution to the Market over the last 5 years in her role as CEO of Lloyd’s of London, Colin Bird, Chairman of Besso, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award, Teresa Bentley became our Diversity & Inclusion Champion and Katie Pycock of AXA XL received the Young Person of the Year Award.
