Making a Difference Awards

ANZIIF is proud to announce the 2022 Making a Difference Recognition Awards.

The recognition awards highlight individuals across different sectors in insurance who have gone above and beyond to display exemplary professionalism in their workplace, and with their customers.

Throughout 2022, each award will recognise one individual across the broking, claims, general insurance, life insurance, reinsurance and underwriting sectors. 

These awards recognise an individual who has demonstrated outstanding professionalism, commitment, achievement and passion in the insurance industry between 2021 and the closing date of the submission. 

By celebrating the things we do well, we can continue to raise the profile of insurance in the community. We encourage insurance professionals to enter by either self-nominating or nominating a colleague or peer who has demonstrated outstanding professionalism, commitment, achievement and passion in the insurance industry.
