Winner of the prize for the best AAE slogan

25 November 2021

As communicated in the AAE General Assembly held on 1 October 2021, the new AAE Slogan is: advising, achieving, engaging.

 

Winner of the prize for the best slogan is Henning Wergen, who is a member of the ECA 2022 organising team.

Henning has generously decided to donate his prize to anyone of the members who took the effort to submit a slogan proposal.

 

A prize draw performed by Mária Kamenárová, chairperson of the AAE, resulted in Elina Tilta-Gerika (Latvia) to be awarded this prize. The AAE Board generously extended this prize to not only include a free ticket to ECA2022, but also to reimburse travel and hotel costs.

Elina will be contacted to make the appropriate arrangements.

 

Henning received a nice box of Belgian chocolate as thanks for his generous donation from Mária Kamenárová.

Desmond Tutu once wisely said that “there is only one way to eat an elephant: a bite at a time.” What he meant by this is that everything in life that seems daunting, overwhelming, and even impossible can be accomplished gradually by taking on just a little at a time.

 

The consequences of the current Covid-19 pandemic are huge and they dwarf most elephants. The number of human tragedies is immense although insurers seem to get along with the consequences in life and death. A different issue is business interruption where most existing policies do not cover the losses. A good question is whether it would be possible to extend business interruption cover in such a way that also situations like this would be covered.
