CGU was at one of the biggest weeks on the Australian sporting calendar, the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
CGU business units across, Broker Business, Claims, Workers Compensation and Niche and Direct teams hosted guests on each of the major carnival days in CGU’s Monet-themed marquee.
On Melbourne Cup Day we were fortunate to be joined in the marquee by Layne Beachley and winning jockey Michelle Payne. Layne spoke about her ‘Aim for the Stars Foundation’ which empowers and encourages women to achieve their goals.
Michelle happily took part in an impromptu Q&A session where she shared her story and discussed the challenges of working in a male dominated industry. On a day that would see Michelle create history for women in sport, the experience will be lasting for her new legion of IAG fans.
