Ventris Lam

My name is Ventris Lam and I work for the Hong Kong branch of West of England.

The past eight years have been a very memorable and valuable learning experience for me.  I am now a confident and cheerful person having completed the P&I Qualification.

In 2012, I sat for Module 1 at which time I had never thought of completing all seven Modules.  Perhaps it was just as well that I did not think too far ahead because, otherwise, I may never have started.

However, after my failure in one of the Modules in 2016, I wanted to give it up as I was juggling with work, family and studies at the same time.  Luckily with the encouragement and assistance of my supervisor, I went for a second attempt and obtained a good mark. 

The importance of perseverance and determination were thus realised.  I thoroughly understand the meaning of “failure breeds success”.  It was a great boost to my ability as well. 

Having finished all the Modules in June 2020, I have been given the opportunity to become more involved actively in the Underwriting Department.  I feel very happy being able to put my qualifications to good use.  It is a recognition of my effort and ability as well.  

Last but not least, I would like to thank the International Group for organising the P&IQ, it is a privilege for all those who have sat the examinations.
