Laura Blyth, who is an Independent Financial Adviser here at Woodward Markwell has become Deputy President of the Ipswich, Suffolk & North Essex Chartered Insurance Institute.

Woodward Markwell are very proud of Laura and her achievement and Laura herself is delighted at the appointment. Laura said “I joined the council two years ago to push myself out of my comfort zone and expand my professional network. I enjoy helping to tailor the social and educational events for our members. I am extremely passionate about ensuring that the Professional Finance Society is represented locally, even though we are the minority in this area. I have made great friends and many professional connections in various companies and at different stages in their career. I am excited for this to continue throughout my time as deputy as I truly believe in the statement’ it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. The Institute allows me become integrated into a large network of like-minded professionals ’

Laura also added “I think having two young women (Sarah Deacon, who is the President and myself) at the forefront of our council shows that the CII is embracing change even though Insurance and Financial Services are seen to be male dominated industries”.

Woodward Markwell would like to congratulate both Laura and Sarah on their new appointments.
