Nigerian insurance and reinsurance operators have received training sessions
on construction risk with the topic, ‘Appreciating the C.A.R/ E.A.R insurance policy and how it works – Plus focus session on A.L.O.P/ D.S.U coverage’.
The Regional Risk Consultant from Talent Asia Training and Consulting in Singapore, Mr Pooba Mahalingam, said Talent Asia will continue to serve the African continent as travel restrictions are lifted globally.
He spoke when Singapore-based Talent Asia Training & Consulting hosted a physical training session for the Nigerian insurance/ reinsurance industry, which had about 30 participants from various organisations.
The participants were from reinsurers (Zep Re, African Re, Continental Re, Waica Re), Insurance Companies (NSIA, Axa Mansard) and related industry professionals and intermediaries.
Talent Asia was supported by Grilas Consultancy (Pty) Ltd, a South African-based organisation to host the event.
The event was presented by Mahalingam, who came from Singapore as the lead technical facilitator for the two days event, while the other facilitator, Chairman of Grilas Consultancy (Pty) Ltd, Mr Reuben Chikudo, delivered his presentation via zoom from South Africa.
Mahalingam said Talent Asia would continue to engage with insurance industry stakeholders globally as the situation gets back to normal.
He expressed delight that face-to-face training sessions had resumed and hoped that Talent Asia would visit Accra, Nairobi and Maputo in 2023.
Chikudo, said, “Great to be working with Pooba from Singapore who is willing to impart his technical knowledge with the participants from Nigeria. I have seen him in action in various events in Singapore and Dubai.”
“We found that the participants were very interested and the session continued beyond the allocated time-line each day,” he said. It was a good and effective learning session.”
Some of the participants expressed their satisfaction.
Frances Nwogbe, from Waica Re said, “Thanks to Talent Asia and Grilas for arranging this interesting event in Lagos with the facilitators who have this specialised engineering insurance expertise.
Emmanuel Ajibade from Continental Re, said, “Appreciate the efforts to bring two experienced trainers, Pooba and Reuben who shared relevant key points during this two-day session.”
