QBE Insurance Australia is delighted to announce our sponsorship of the NSW Young Insurance Professionals (YIPs), an independent organisation for young people in the insurance industry.

Bettina Pidcock, QBE Australia Executive General Manager Marketing, said the sponsorship was important to QBE, which is committed to supporting the development of the next generation of Insurance professionals.

"Attracting and retaining young people in the insurance sector is critical to ensuring we have a sustainable, innovative and vibrant industry now and into the future.

"YIPs does excellent work engaging young insurance professionals which helps promote longevity in the industry. We’re pleased to be able to get involved and offer them our support."

As part of this sponsorship, QBE will directly sponsor two NSW YIPs events this year, including the inaugural NSW YIPS trivia night to be held at Mr Tipply’s, 347 Kent Street, Sydney, 2000 on 31 August, 2016.

Bettina said: "This event is a great example of the way in which YIPs brings together networking opportunities with professional development and fun."

NSW YIPs Vice-President, Jack Hunt, welcomed QBE on board as a new event sponsor.

"We are pleased to have QBE sponsor our upcoming trivia night and look forward to working together now and in the future on ways to promote, develop and engage young people who work in insurance," said Jack, who is also a corporate lawyer at QBE Australia.

More details of the trivia night are available on the YIPs website: http://yips.org.au/
