Brokers, associates take to the greens

It was a day of fun and social interaction when major players in the insurance industry came together for the second annual Sagicor Golf Scramble at the Sandy Lane Country Club in St James.

Brokers and business associates joined a number of executives of the Sagicor Group on the greens and fairways during the fun-filled day last Saturday.

For the Scramble, accomplished players were selected as leaders of four-member teams for the event and were supported by others not so skilled.

Those being exposed to the sport of golf for the first time were given pointers on playing strokes by staff of the golf course, and the Scramble format created an element of fun while also underscoring how sport can truly mimic real-life situations.

The significance of combining skills through teamwork allowed players to solve the challenges of getting the ball into the hole, utilizing the strengths of each team member, and also generated much laughter and light moments on the course.

Once back at the clubhouse, executives of Sagicor Life and Sagicor General thanked the brokers and business associates for accepting invitations to be part of the fun-filled event, as they did for their support over the past year in a still challenging business environment.

“This is the second year that we hosted the Sagicor Scramble, and, based on all the happy faces, it’s safe to say that everyone enjoyed themselves. It is important for us to nurture the good relationships that we have built over the years, through both formal and informal events such as this,” said Edward Clarke, chief operating officer of Sagicor Life and general manager of Barbados.

“We truly appreciate their business and relationships with us in this competitive environment, and we are happy that everyone had a good time,” Clarke added.

    Steupse !
    Just shows how these people think
    They mentioned everybody by name but could not find the names of the caddies. This whole thing smacks of something distasteful to me. I do not like it; I am not comfortable with this . it seems like some kind of arrogant crap. Waiting to see if the moderator will let this comment appear.
