The New Zealand All Blacks made a pit stop in Singapore last month on their way back to New Zealand after the Northern Tour. AIG Singapore had the pleasure of hosting three of the New Zealand All Blacks players – TJ Perenara, Damian McKenzie and Matt Todd – during their visit from 27 to 29 November. As the Major Global Sponsor of the reigning World Champions, this platform gave us a unique opportunity to express our gratitude to our employees, brokers, clients, agents and business partners.
In anticipation of the players’ visit, the Client and Broker Engagement Marketing team organised a “How much do you know about Rugby” quiz for our AIG Singapore colleagues to win the opportunity to meet the All Blacks, which set the tone for an exciting visit.
The All Blacks players kicked off their visit with a Meet & Greet session with members of our senior leadership team and selected employees. The winners of the rugby trivia quiz attended a special Q&A session – A Day in the Life of an All Black – and got creative posing with the players at the photo booth during the office visit at 78 Shenton Way on 28 November.
The All Blacks players then hosted our brokers, clients, agents and key business partners at the first AIG Golf Day in Singapore and the AIG Barista Academy for coffee lovers. To cap it all off, the players led a rugby training clinic for our employees, brokers, agents and their children! The events were a huge success with over 200 attendees taking part and engaging with the All Blacks players.
Every day, AIG employees strive for teamwork, integrity, and performing at the highest level – all characteristics that are at the heart of the All Blacks. The strength and tenacity of our team is a common thread that links AIG and the All Blacks. No matter how difficult the challenge, these qualities inspire us to overcome any obstacle and emerge stronger than ever.
