Sanlam hosted a graduation ceremony for the 2019 Cohort of the Sanlam Senior Leadership development program in September. The program attracted leaders from African countries where Sanlam is represented.

Zimbabwe was well represented by a team of 5 (Imagine Acacia) which was made up of senior leaders drawn from the Masawara Insurance group of companies. As part of the training program the country teams were asked to come up with a viable business plan which they were to pitch to Sanlam for buy-in.

Team Imagine Acacia were awarded the best business pitch out of 10 countries further highlighting the great talent within our ranks.

Team Imagine Acacia decided to think outside of the proverbial box and came up with “a milkShake” for all the Zimnat products on one platform.

The project called milkShake is a platform that will allow Zimnat customers to create a mix of the Zimnat products according to their financial capacity and preference.

The business world is gravitating towards financial inclusion, and with the new milkShake Team Imagine Acacia hopes to change the Zimbabwean non-banking financial services sector as we know it.

With the Masawara Group having already acquired a 50% stake into the trademarked brand, Milkshake is the next big thing to happen to insurance in Zimbabwe. Keep looking out for more developments on milkShake!
