“This is not an easy feat but with insurance you have to be passionate about your job and have good relations with clients. When we go out to receive international awards as best performers around the world we have an opportunity to benchmark and learn how others make it so I improve every year. Insurance needs continuous research on finances because today we deal with literate people. We need to educate and explain to our clients on investing and savings,” said the high achiever.
Addressing employees at the award ceremony on Saturday, Metropolitan Head of Distribution, Masego Tselaesele Mogolodi said as financial advisors they are responsible for offering the best advice to clients, community and businesses they engage with on a daily basis.

Your contribution within retail department grew from about 27% in 2014 and you are now at 52% this year. I urge winners to develop the spirit of team work and teach others how you do it so that we can have more millionaires next year,” said Mogolodi
