Dan Rose Cert CII, Company Director - Event Insurance

Attending the gala dinner and networking with other successful insurance companies as part of the awards night was a truly memorable experience. The event provided an excellent platform for industry professionals to connect, share insights, and celebrate achievements. It was inspiring to witness the collective talent and innovation within the insurance industry. The networking opportunities offered during the gala dinner allowed us to engage with like-minded professionals, exchange valuable ideas, and establish new connections.

Andrew Elder, Head of Brand - Policy Expert

At Policy Expert, we’ve always placed great importance on the Insurance choice awards. That’s because they’re voted by the best judges…our customers. So we were thrilled to win Best home insurance provider in 2022. The gala evening is a fantastic way to celebrate success and network with other progressive, like-minded insurance companies.
