Discover Risk at The Harris Academy

As you may know, a big part of the Discover Risk campaign is to deliver our board game to Year 12 and 13 students at schools and colleges across the UK.

CII Area Marketing Manager, Julie Hicks, recently delivered the Discover Risk game to students at The Harris Academy in Welling.  She was accompanied by Amanda William from Euler Hermes.  Amanda is an Assistant Underwriter (if you want to know what an underwriter does click here), and she was on hand to support Julie as students worked their way through the five scenarios.

The game was a great success with more than 75% of students recommending the game to other sixth formers.   Amanda went on to tell us - "I thought the students were very intelligent and grasped the ideas behind the tasks very quickly - if I was talent spotting at that session, I know who I would have offered work placements to!" 

The games don't just reveal the enormous and exciting career opportunities in risk and insurance. They also help students develop important soft skills such as teamwork, influence, negotiation and communication - the skills that employers love to see.
