Ladies Day - Melbourne

The crew at Brooklyn and over 30 of Melbourne’s best female insurance professionals joined together in May.

Gathering at the uber trendy (and sophisticated) high-tea salon ‘Where a Girl Goes’ in Collingwood, the ladies enjoyed the finest sweet and savoury delights that Melbourne has to offer, served in exquisite crockery. After the success of the high-tea afternoons in Sydney and now in Melbourne, the Brooklyn Ladies Day are set to come to a city near you!

Farewell To Rado

After over 19 years, the veteran of the Brooklyn team, Rado Polic, finished an outstanding career with Brooklyn which started in February 1995. Rado has seen Brooklyn grow from 2 employees to 20 and in that time has enjoyed the support of some of the largest insurance companies in Australia and abroad. He has made us all laugh and cry over the years and will be very much missed.

We wish Rado all the very best in his future endeavours.

AFTER 19 YEARS FAREWELL TO RADO

Brooklyn’s Day At The Rugby

The Rugby Shute Shield headed to Manly Oval for a good old-fashioned grudge match between top-of-the-ladder Manly Marlins and rival powerhouse Eastwood.

Over 30 of our Sydney brokers and their families joined the Brooklyn squad in a marquee that was jam-packed with cold drinks, snags and ‘rugby-tragics.’ Marlins’ Prop Forward and Business Development Executive (Tim Fairbrother) plus Half- Back and Team Administrator (Max Wood) were both out with injuries but provided an insight into the intricacies of one of Australia’s favourite past-times – watching Rugby with friends.

After the final siren, the boys from Manly had sealed their 9th straight victory with the score at 42- 22. This was Brooklyn’s first ‘Day at the Rugby’ and will not be our last.

Stay posted for the next scrum!
