AIA to showcase advisers’ experiences with Vitality programme

AIA New Zealand has launched a campaign encouraging its advisers to share their experiences with AIA Vitality, the insurer’s flagship programme.

The campaign’s winners can spend a day with one of the programme’s three ambassadors: Dame Valerie Adams, former All Black Ian Jones, and wellness advocate Jess Quinn. The ambassadors will support the winning advisers in their business for a day, taking part in various activities, such as speaking at a business event, participating in a team activity, or supporting a community project.  

According to AIA NZ, the competition is its way to further support advisers’ businesses with a creative concept, as well as broadcasting its message of health and wellbeing for all New Zealanders. Entries are open until July 09, and can be submitted through the AIA NZ website.

“There are so many amazing stories out there that bring the AIA Vitality journey to life,” said AIA NZ chief partnership insurance officer Sam Tremethick. “We know of advisers who have seen significant mental and physical benefits since joining the program, and clients who’ve shared their own positive personal experiences. We’d love to hear more of these, and how together we’re making a difference in people’s lives.”

According to Adams, she has a lot of experiences – as a working mum and elite athlete – that she can share with clients and internal teams.

“Sharing my story to help others on their AIA Vitality journey is something that I find really empowering,” Adams said. “A healthy lifestyle and taking small steps to achieve greatness is what it’s all about.”   

Quinn expressed delight in participating in the competition, and she looks forward to sharing her personal story on overcoming adversity, mental health and hardship.

“Mental wellbeing is something that so many people struggle with, and it needs to be talked about more openly,” she said.  “I’d love the opportunity to chat with your team or clients on the importance of looking after your mental health, as well as adapting to change.”

Meanwhile, Jones is excited to spend time with the winning adviser, preferably outdoors.

“I’m open to chatting at a fundraising dinner, taking a team or clients out for an AIA Vitality-inspired run or walk – and I’m not bad with a club in my hand, so could go a few rounds at a golf day,” he said.
