GWII rounds off year with Retro in Lumo event

Gauteng Women in Insurance welcomed members to its ‘Retro in Lumo’ themed year-end function with main sponsor Camargue, and co-sponsors Chubb, Emerald, Genasys, Guy Carpenter, Leppard, Marsh, MUA Insurance Acceptances, One Insurance, Praesidio Risk Managers, Sintelum and Swiss Re Corporate Solutions.

Outdoor drive-in roadhouse experience

Hosted at The Roadhouse Restaurant Drive-In, at the Kyalami Equestrian Park, the theme of the event was centred around an outdoor drive-in roadhouse experience.

On arrival, guests were provided with face masks, sponsored by Genasys. The guests were then treated to welcome drinks sponsored by One Financial.

Welcoming members, GWII President, Catherine Pienaar, reflected on the year that was, and what GWII members can expect in 2021.

With a photo booth, sponsored by Genasys, the ladies then snapped away and captured the fun, while listening to lively music.
